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.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
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.
Wood Handles

Cons: None
Great multi purpose woods knife.
For the price, this is perhaps one of the best full tang, high carbon steel big knives (for those who prefer that) one can buy for wilderness use. It is heavy enough to use for light chopping, and the shape of the handle makes a lot of different grips possible. The blade itself is like a hybrid flat grind with a scandi-grind at the end, which should make sharpening a breeze. It also has a guide notch for those who use more advanced sharpening tools The sheath is of typical condor quality, with thick leather and solid stitching, and also includes a swing swivel that should make the knife easier to keep in the belt when sitting down. Only negative I have found with the knife so far, is that it has (in typical Condor fashion) some kind of clear lacquer on the blade. While I understand that this is done in order to protect the carbon steel blade against rust, it doesn't take much use before it starts to look real ugly, so I generally remove this layer with standard paint remover whenever I recieve a condor product.

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.
