CN15218HC: Eco-Survivor El Salvador Machete
Condor Tool & Knife
The Eco-Survivor El Salvador by Condor Tool & Knife is a super lightweight machete that features a polished 1075 high carbon steel and is heat treated and annealed to about 50-55 Rockwell hardness (a measure of blade hardness). Every edge is hand finished and polished to razor sharpness. The orange polypropylene handle is strong and virtually indestructible. The ballistic nylon sheath is far quieter than Kydex and is MOLLE compliant. Condor's special sheath shop conducted research to find materials that would be sturdy, and each sheath is double stitched and reinforced for heavy duty use.
