CN390212HC: Primitive Bush Machete Carbon Steel
Condor Tool & Knife
The CTK3902-12HC Primitive Bush Machete 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 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 is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
