CN2359HC: Moonshiner Knife
Condor Tool & Knife
The blade is made from German 1075 High Carbon Steel and are heat treated and annealed to about 56-58 Rockwell hardness. The edge is hand finished and polished to razor sharpness. The hardwood handles are made from hard woods of Central America, similar to Hickory. It is finished with a smooth grip and is known for its long durability. Includes a high quality, heavy duty, handcrafted leather sheath with a swiveling belt loop that allows the tool to swing out of the way while moving through brush or the jungle. The tool can also be swung out of the way while riding in a truck or car, thus not poking one in the side as a conventional knife sheath.

A New Classic
This is a great knife in general, and a fantastic knife for the price. If you like old world craftsmanship and practical design, you won't be disappointed with the Moonshiner (I actually know little of moonshining, but if you are a moonshiner you too might find use for a fine knife). Fit and finish out of the box were good to go. It arrived sharp (and quickly), but as I'll be doing a lot of chopping with it I out a convex grind on it. It takes a fine edge, is durable and tough, good looking with a mustard patina, and all in all a perfect knife for someone looking for a big knife with great weight and balance. Oh, the sheath is also typical Condor, which is to say that it's excellent.

Sad Example
Workmanship on my example of this knife was absolutely poor. I have ordered other knives from Condor that were fine, but this one is terrible.

very good knife
This is a very good knife for every camping tasks. I have tried it in my garden( I have a very big garden)vbecause in next days I want to go for a three days trip outside in the mountains and this knife have done all the "big work" with ease. Not really perfect because it have a too big handle ( for my little to medium hand), is too heavy and I dont like the long false edge on the top but, overall, is a good knife and it will be with me in all camping trip. excellent sheat, very sharp( while not "razor sharp"), fit and finish so-so. Like it very much!
