CN35216HC: Thunderhead Machete | Carbon Steel
Condor Tool & Knife
The Thunderhead machete from Condor is thick, tough, somewhat heavy and a little tactical, which we like at the KnifeCenter very much. It is made from a single sheet of 1075 carbon steel with a durable, black polypropylene handle. It is one tough machete. The blade has a rough, convex edge and this machete is really ready to do some work. It's the kind of tool that you feel like beating the heck out of with some really rough chores - chopping limbs, grasses, rope or whatever and then putting on a wheel or using a file to resharpen. The shape is nicely weighted towards the end to allow for effective chops and the double edge allows for more capability in your arsenal. A beautiful leather sheath is included that is very well made. The leather is thick, smooth and dyed black and has a large belt loop. All in all, this is a great tool and the price is absolutely right!

Cons: None
Condor - good machette, sheathe & Price
Great tool with 1075 steel that sharpens easy and holds the edge well. hefty with a weight forward design requires fewer strokes. I buy their blades as much for the sheaths as for the quality of the steel... Dave G, NH

Nicely done!
This is certainly not the biggest machete out there, nor is it the best chopper. However, like with other Condors I've used, this one shows quality craftsmanship throughout. Putting the weight forward into the tip does give this machete more power than a 16" blade would otherwise have, and the good steel Condor employs can take and hold a keen & sturdy edge. The poly handle is comfortable enough and allows for a lanyard (important for chopping). My favorite part of this machete is its second edge, which means it can do twice the work before resharpening! Alternately, you can keep one edge thinner for finer tasks and one thicker for heavy hitting. The double edge ended up being a lot more useful than I expected it would be. This is a fine choice for a camp machete!
