Description
CN424123HC: Crocodilian Machete
Condor Tool & Knife

The Crocodilian machete from Condor is thick, tough, somewhat heavy and a little crude and we like it at the Knife Center very much. It is made from a single sheet of carbon steel which is folded around to form the oval handle which is then wrapped with para cord. 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. A beautiful leather sheath is included that is very well made. The leather is thick, smooth and dyed black and has a swiveling belt loop. All in all, this is a great tool and the price is absolutely right!

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.

Cons: Handle Material, None
Put a smile on my face before using it.
I found this impressive as soon as I laid eyes on it. The handle is a bit awkward at first, and almost demands choking up on the blade, but that's the only drawback I've found to this piece of machete mastery. It's definitely made for larger hands than small. The blade has a near perfect convex grind and has a substantial thickness that most machete's lack. This is a heavy blade for it's size! After my initial inspection, I took it outside and found a couple limbs on the walnut tree that needed trimmed off. I learned with the first swing of the blade that this a blade that barely even needs swung. Let gravity do most of the work on the lighter brush. I'm thoroughly impressed with this and Condor is now my favorite machete brand. Puts any machetes I've used that are made by another manufacturer whose name starts with a C and ends with Old Steel to shame, as well as pretty much any other manufacturer I've used.
