CN3931135HC: Big Leaf Machete
Condor Tool & Knife
A tool should not only be functional but ascetically appealing as well. This is something you see in nearly all primitive cultures around the world. Matt Graham's Big Leaf Machete is a highly functional machete that still has roots inspired by the land itself. It features a polished 1075 high carbon steel blade, durable Micarta handle scales, and a handcrafted welted leather drop sheath.
Designed by Matt Graham
Matt Graham has experience living off the land: he went for a walk one day and ended up spending six months on his own in the wild. He lives in a remote area of southern Utah where he primarily sleeps in rudimentary structures. You may have seen Matt use Condor products on TV. In 2015, Graham and Condor Tool & Knife teamed up to develop a special line of "Primitive Survival Tools," combining Matt's core knowledge of aboriginal skills and pioneer design with Condor's old world hand craftsmanship. The Primitive Survival Series Tools are built tough and will take you to the next level in your adventures.

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.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
