CN2803C16: Cloudburst Axe
Condor Tool & Knife
 
The axe head on the Condor Tool & Knife Cloudburst Axe is made from forged 1060 high carbon steel and is heat treated and annealed to about 50-55 Rockwell hardness. The natural finish is a bare metal look that has the appeal of a well worn pair of jeans. There is special treatment over the top of the blade to help repel rust. The American Hickory handle is strong and gives the axe an ancient look. The included sheath is made from high quality, heavy duty, handcrafted leather.

This axe has a narrow grind
I am writing this review in April 2018. Either condor has changed the thickness of the grind of the axe since 2 years ago or their QC standards are not perfect.There are almost no reviews of this on the internet so I had to take a leap of faith when deciding to buy this last week. I wanted a general purpose axe that could chop and split, so I was looking for an axe head that was somewhere between both. After buying the axe I managed to find a short youtube video review of it and immediately became concerned because the grind looked too thick and the angle to wide to do any chopping. I thought I had bought a splitting axe but the axe I received was notably narrower and resembled chopping more than splitting, but isn't as narrow as a dedicated chopping axe. The axe head is forged very well and very precisely, came somewhat sharp, is firmly attached to the handle with no wood jammed into the gaps, and I am quite happy except that the bit is not completely straight. They know how to make axe heads in EL salvador. The head is relatively light at 750 grams and has a cutting surface of 3.5 inches. The handle grain is straight with no knots and is only about 20 degrees which is very acceptable. The leather collar and head cover are of outstanding quality and fit making this a terrific buy for $75.Overall I am very pleased with this axe except for a very slightly bent bit when I look straight at the bit with one eye. The grind and bevel angle are very suitable for a general purpose axe. It is around 1100 grams so I will have no problems carrying this with me on a hike.
