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
Wood Handles
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.

Cons: Blade Material, Usable, None
Fun beater, easily cleaved just about anything. Somewhat soft steel.
In addition to chopping this and that and "test cutting" (ha ha) I used my condor dadao to demolish an old couch so I could fit it in my van. I was careful to not hit any of the metal parts. I was surprised that I ended up with a few rolls on the blade. This was easily fixed with a block sharpening steel, but I am surprised that 1075 carbon steel rolled rather than chipped. Anyway I was chopping very hard wood and that's not really what a sword is for. But still. The balance in this hefty sword is somewhere between where a sword practically probably should be and an axe (especially if you were theoretically going to fight somebody armed with a similar weapon) you can't move it around that fast, but it hits very hard. I feel like something may have been off with the heat treat, because I don't think so hefty a blade should take damage from striking wood, but who knows.

One Tough Sword
I've used this sword for almost a year now and couldn't be happier. It's basically a single, thick slab of steel that has two wooden scales bolted on each side for a handle. It feels (and is) very rugged and durable with quality materials and craftmanship. The sheath was a bit of a disappointment though. It arrived slightly scuffed and is made of a rigid leather that feels a bit lower quality than what I'm used to with Condor. It also lacks any loops or connection straps and serves only to protect to blade. So far I've used the Dadao several times in the country to trim large branches and chop firewood. I've also had fun chopping up old 1x4s boards and cedar posts in the backyard with it (can easily chop the 1x4s in one swing!). It's too big to replace a machete for all day carry, but is a fun alternative to a light axe for backwoods use. I really like the simple ergonomics of the handle, which allows for good control with either one or two hands. It can get a bit slippery if your hands get sweaty though. Overall, this is one of my favorite swords/machetes and one which I supect will last a lifetime, even with heavy use. A definite recommend if you're looking for a heavy duty chopping blade.

Great Deal
This is one of the first Condor products I have bought but it probably won't be the last. This sword is really well built for the price. The handles are tight, the steel looks great, and the scabbard was well built. This thing is a lot of fun and I am not as worried about damaging it because of the price. I would recommend that anyone who has the inclination to buy this sword do so. And buy it from Knifecenter because their customer service is top notch.
