Condor Tool & Knife CTK242-8 Primitive Bush Knife 8" Blasted Satin Stainless Steel Blade, Hardwood Handle, Leather Sheath
CN2428: Primitive Bush Knife
Condor Knife & Tool
The Primitive Bush knife features an English 420 HC (High Carbon) surgical quality stainless steel and is heat treated and annealed to about 56-58 Rockwell (a measure of hardness). Every edge is hand finished and polished to razor sharpness. The blasted satin finish is achieved by sand or bead blasting the exposed metal portion of the blade. The hardwood handles are made from hard woods of Central America, similar to Hickory, and are used in some of our machetes and knives. They are finished with a smooth grip and are known for their long durability.

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.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
