Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
I love this kukri style machete. For the money pay you get more quality materials compared to buying a cold steel kukri machete. Good high carbon 1075 steel, spring temper, hard wood handle scales, top quality leather sheath. I've owned my Condor for some months now. When it arrived the edge bevel was way too steep to be used effectively for chopping. But that wasn't a problem because i have a buddy with a belt grinder. Once that was fixed with just some metal removal, it became a hell of a chopper. Besides the edge grind, I've scaled down the handle with my dremmel because it was a little too big for my medium/large hands. Plan on taking off the black finish later. From chopping tree limbs, logs, and batoning firewood this piece of steel has taken them all and can take more. Lightweight, lively, and awesome, I didn't go wrong with this. If you're on a budget and need/want a kukri style machete, by all means, buy a cold steel one. But if you can afford to dish out the extra cash, go for this offering from Condor. You can't go wrong says this simple observer.
