CN2428HC: Primitive Bush Knife Carbon Steel
Condor Tool & Knife
The CTK242-8HC Primitive Bush knife features a 1075 high carbon steel blasted satin blade and is heat treated and annealed to about 50-55 Rockwell hardness (a measure of hardness). Every edge is hand finished and polished to razor sharpness. The blasted satin finish is achieved by bead blasting the exposed metal portion of the blade. The two-tone Micarta handles enhance both the look and function while delivery indestructible phenolic performance. The included sheath is made from high quality, heavy duty, handcrafted leather.

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.
Micarta Handles
Micarta Handles

Good All-Around Bush Knife
I've had this knife for a little over two years now. Have used it for small wood processing, as an impromptu draw knife, created lots of friction fire sets, carved deadfall traps, processed materials for natural shelter, etc. It handles it all very well and can do all the smaller tasks adequately but also fill the role of a small machete-like tool. The Primitve Bush Knife can definitely fill the roll of a "one tool option" if that's what you're looking for, but pair this with some type of small puukko and the vast majority of wilderness based knife tasks could be easily accomplished. The only gripe I had is when I first received the knife the plunge lines were off at the base of the blade. This was rectified with about an hour of sanding at which point it was fine. Would really like seeing this knife in 1095, but El Salvador knows how to do a good heat treat on 1075 so edge retention is pretty good for what it is (sharpening in the field is easy at least). My final comment would be to say, I really like the tab sheath. It may seem awkward at first if you've never used one, but for large knives, it's probably my favorite way to carry them.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Very cool
After seeing this knife I knew I had to have it, especially once the upgraded model arrived. Love this knife overall sheath is quite stiff and tight out of the box but I'm sure it will break in nicely, leather quality and craftsmanship seem very good. Only disappointment is blade sharpness mine came not anywhere close to the "honed to razor sharpness" as stated in the description.

Awesome Knife!
Awesome knife! The micarta handle fills the hand nicely and is thicker than its wood handle counter part. The sheath is excellent for those who like the primitive style. An all around great one tool option. Looking forward in collecting all of Matt Grahams knives. Good job Condor!
