Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, None
Cons: Blade Material, Finish, Overall Quality
poor quality. Beware of "I love it but haven't used it yet" reviews.
this is a rather more expensive machete (compared to Tramontina) and it costs more than Ontario machete but it's not as good. The carbon steel is softer than it should be. I used it to hack some brush and soft wood branches up to 1" in diameter and the edge had significant dents and rolls. The black coating on the blade is just cheap paint. It bubbled and peeled right off. the handle is only good thing on this Machete. I don't recommend this machete. Beware of misleading reviews like the one below: "I have not used it yet but the Quality of the Machete is great". LOL! Anyhow, I don't recommend this Machete and based on my research, Condor is not know for good quality control. Get the Ontario machete instead, it's made better!
