CN2819525HC: Large Huron Knife
Condor Tool & Knife
The popular Navajo or Huron gets a big brother with the Large Huron Knife, a more capable version of the kukri-inspired recurved knife. It features a 5.71" 1095 high carbon steel blade. Every edge is hand finished and honed to razor sharpness. The natural finish is a bare metal look that has the appeal of a well-worn pair of jeans. The walnut wood handles enhance both the look and function of this knife while delivering durable, lasting performance. The Large Huron has two stripes of wire wrap to distinguish it from the normal Huron and comes with the same hip-hugging style full grain, heavy duty, handcrafted leather sheath. The people asked for it, and Condor listened!

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.
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
