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.

Condor primitive bush knife.
I have not had a chance to take this knife to the bush yet but have used quite a few times in the back yard. I believe for summer use it will replace my belt knife and my ax. It does feather sticks , splits wood and does food prep very well. In winter I still want my ax and saw but for summer I really believe this is all I need. Overall the quality is pretty good for the price . The pins on the handle aren't all that smooth but a few mins with some sandpaper took care of that. The cutting edge seems to hold up quite well. So far I am very pleased with this purchase . Weight savings is approx. 2 lb. less than my winter tools.

Pros: Weight, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Nice knife. Needs a longer blade
Good cutter/ good for cracking coconuts open, driving tent pegs/ ferocerium. Tip is a little fragile. came sharp/ used diamond/ceramic stone to make it sharper stone. The sheath might be fine for Matt but I want a belt loop... Blade needs another couple inches too...it's big for a knife, but too small for use as a machete. LOOSE the signature on the blade!
