Product Description

CONDOR TOOL & KNIFE traces its proud history back to 1787, the year GERB WEYESBERG COMPANY was founded in Solingen, Germany. The quality of the swords, military knives, agricultural tools and household cutlery they manufactured made Solingen the cutlery capital of the world. Over the generations, the world’s largest manufacturer of swords and knives found it necessary to expand operations to other countries to better serve its customers. In 1964, the company formed IMACASA with a new plant in Santa Ana, El Salvador and filled it with state of the art German equipment. Some of the original local employees who were sent to Solingen for extensive training forty years ago are still working in the factory today, turning out the finest quality machetes, shovels and other hand tools.The overall length of the knife is 14.25” and the blade length is 8.5.

The Hudson Bay Condor knife is a nice piece.
Willy D
Well worth the money and better than any cold steel knife you can get.
Alex Schultz
Leather sheath is very well constructed and should hold up well.

This is the tool we've all been waiting for. No frills at all - that's why I like it so much. Just a lot of blade and simple wooden scales held tight with three brass pins... simplicity at it's best! Flat knife back to baton with and a full tang you can see all around the handle. I'm getting excited just thinking about it.

The knife itself is 13" from end to end. I think the 14.25" designation is while it's docked in the sheath. The blade is 8.5" from handle to tip and the cutting edge is 7.5". This thing is a meat cleaver on steroids. The 1075 high carbon, black powder coat steel (older version) is 3/16" thick at the tang and slightly tapers as it reaches the tip. It's full flat grind with a convex edge. El Salvador is stamped on one side and Condor, the other.

My sheath is thick, supple, brown leather and retains the knife securely without a strap. The belt loop is attached with a single fastener so the sheath will pivot on your belt. The single piece of leather is simply folded over, stitched and riveted at both ends. It is embossed with the Condor logo. There is no drain hole but one can be poked through. I was thinking about just cutting the tip of the sheath off since there's about an inch and a half extra length after the knife is tucked in but I always hate to change the originality of something unless absolutely necessary.

I took it to the back yard and laid into some logs. Oh my... sweet, sweet chopper! It seems to beg for more and it's so easy to oblige. The powder coat held up well but will soon yield after continued use as all coatings do. The Hudson Bay really brings out the inner primeval man - no rubber, plastic, micarta or mechanical fasteners here. I am Grizzly Adams... at the low, low price of $33!

Just the sheath at this price would be a deal. But they throw in a big hunk of steel, too.

I think it's somewhat elitist to grouse about imperfections. If you honestly feel that you won't have the same finish after a year or less of honest use then, in my opinion, you don't need a knife. You can spend upwards of a couple hundred bucks and miss out on incontinuity of finish on the walnut or maybe a slightly underfinished rivet or a waviness in the back finish but, hell, your expectations on a honkin' high-carbon blade with a grade-A sheath are unrealistically high.

Had I not snapped up three of these at this price I'd say "heck yeah" to buying another and I definitely do recommend it to anyone. Those who would diss this blade because "It needed sharpening" . . . well, your thought may have been that it never would?

This classic Hudson Bay design has been around for a long long time. There's a reason for that: It's a tried and true tool on which generations of rugged workers and outdoorsmen have trusted their lives.

What a pleasant surprise it was for me, then, to discover that Condor had created their own version.

The most striking thing about the knife out of the box is the incredibly fine finish to both the handle and the blade. I own knives 5-7 times more expensive in this category that didn't impress me this much out of the box. The sheath is also top notch and beautifully finished.

Perhaps I was surprised because I had always heard iffy things about the quality control within Condor. By observing their refinements to their other models and to see this knife it's pretty clear they listened and now offer a fine product.

No, this isn't l'objet d'art like many a $400 knife with exotic african wood and some new supersteel.

This is a workhorse.

But it's a workhorse with the beauty and refinement of a thoroughbred.

I couldn't not be happier with my purchase - except for one thing.

Perhaps a lanyard hole wasn't true to the original design, but a knife this big would be much safer and offer greater utility if it had a safety lanyard.

Outside of creating a different bevel on the blade for your specific purposes, I can't think of anything else I'd do to improve the knife.

Outstanding knife and an excellent value.

So this is a pretty well-made knife. On my example the handle scales had shrunk a very tiny amount, likely because I live in an arid climate and where the knives are made is probably humid. Considering the knife is less than $40 it doesn't bother me. I do have some issues with the design of the knife that weren't apparent until I had it in hand and was able to use it. First of all, the handle is a little slick. When I tried chopping with it the knife was slipping in my hand. It could also really use a lanyard hole. For what the knife costs neither of these is a huge deal since almost anyone could fix these easily if they desired, and in doing so customize the knife. And who doesn't like to buy inexpensive knives and mod them? The biggest issue is the grind on the blade. This beast is about 1/4" thick and the primary grind is so shallow that it might as well not be there. This means the knife has a very thick edge that impedes it's performance. I would really like to see this knife with a proper full flat grind and maybe even reduced on thickness, this would improve it's cutting performance.

If you have a belt sander to thin out the edge and like to tinker and customize your knives than this might make a good project knife.
