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.

This knife arrived from Amazon fairly quickly. These Condor Bushlore knives are crude compared to the Spyderco Bushcraft or Ray Mears Woodlore Knife. I believe this comparison is like comparing an AK-47 to the AR-15/M16. The Condor Bushlore is much cheaper, is tougher, and the heat treat is second to none.

My Bushlore (second version/see my pictures above) came with slightly uneven grid and the wood was rough. It's sheath was perfect in fit and finish. I feel I saved tons of money buying this Condor Bushlore instead of the knives mentioned above. If I lose a Condor Bushlore no problem but losing a Ray Mears Woodlore would make me yell very, very loudly.

Condor in El Salvador is a company that sells "semi-handmade" products so every knife is a little different just like a box of chocolates. Some knives have uneven grinds, some are a little shorter/longer, and still some have smaller/bigger handles. So if you want to buy this knife plan on sharpening/regrinding it or in some way ironing out whatever kinks it comes to your door with.

All in All adding the +'s and -'s you can not lose buying the Condor Bushlore knife. I use it for camping/hiking in Alaska. It is a great all around knife if you keep a convex grind on it.

First of all, the knife I recieved is NOT the knife pictured or the knife reviewed above. This is the NEW Bushlore knife and is worlds away from the first generation Bushlore knife. Condor really listened to the (totally justified) criticisms by their customers and reinvented this knife. It is still the same 1075 steel with the excellent heat treat. Still has the big comfortable walnut handle and funtional blade profile. The same first quality thick leather sheath. The significant changes are: The convex grind now extends all the way to the heel instead of starting 3/4 of an inch from the handle, and the blade is now 5/32 inch thick instead of the needlessly massive and heavy 1/4 inch. What you get now is a beautifully balanced, razor sharp wilderness tool that will give any bushcrafter (regardless of cost, custom or production) a run for it's money. It shaves out of the box and after batoning seasoned hickory for a cooking fire, cutting, trimming and sharpening a dozen hard maple branches into tent stakes, the edge was not rolled, chipped or damaged in any way. Still extremely sharp. I own some very expensive knives and I bought this to use as a "beater" but I would have no problem whatsoever betting my life on this blade. I have no affiliation whatsoever with Condor, just passing on to anyone wanting a quality bushcrafter for a bargain, DO NOT PASS THIS UP. When the word gets out the price will undoubtedly go up. The sheath is worth more than the asking price of the knife. Condor nailed it on this one.

I placed my order on 4/17/2011 for two Condor Bushlores. Based on the most recent positive review, I was hoping to receive two of the 2011 bushlores with the improved scandi grind and 1/8" thickness. Well, I received one old (1/4" thick, horrible grind - as described in the first amazon review) and one of the new 2011 Bushlores.

As for the 2010 model - it is as terrible as described by many other critical reviews all over the web and I won't go into it here.

Here's the good news: The 2011 model more than makes up for it. The 1/8" blade thickness seems just right. The scandinavian grind is perfectly even at approximately 11.5 degrees per side (23 degree inclusive) and the grind comes all the way down to the handle with no ricasso. The leather sheath is very high quality as previously mentioned. I would give the 2011 model 5 stars and the 2010 model 1 star, hence the 3 star review. You may want to hold off until you can be guaranteed that all the 2010 models are gone, but you might also expect the price to go up.

Pros: inexpensive, great bushcraft knife if you receive the 2011 model

Cons: you might get the old 1/4" model which is terrible.

The blade broke on the first use. I used it only on wood and to do very common things around the campsite. There was absolutely no added stress to this knife for this to happen. It did come out of the box hair-cutting sharp, but I happen to have received a bad blade.

I bought it from the seller Red's Gear. I contacted them and because it has been used they will not provide a replacement, I will have to contact the manufacturer. I think a knife that breaks on the first use is obviously a bad blade and should be replaced by whoever sells it.

The good news is that the Condor Bushlore knife is a lot of knife for the money! It's thick, high quality carbon steel full tang blade should last a lifetime. The factory heat treatment left a blade so hard that I could barely scratch it when sharpening with a file. The bad is that the edge grind angle is far too large for an effective bushcraft knife. This means that as the knife cuts through wood, a lot of drag occurs at the "shoulders" of the bevel causing the blade to wedge in and stick. Also, the steep angle prevents the blade from forming a chip/shaving when making shallow cuts.

What this means to the end user is that the Condor Bushlore Knife has the potential to be a great knife if the end user is willing to invest some time and effort in correcting a few shortcomings.

For this knife to be useful in woodworking, the grind angle must be reduced to minimize drag when the blade is cutting wood. I attempted to relieve the bevel angle manually with a file and a grinder, but failed due to the inherent hardness of the metal. The factory heat treatment is very good!

I eventually had the edge re-profiled by a professional knifemaker who had the correct knowledge and grinding equipment to remove a lot of metal without excessively heating the edge. I now have a useful, well built, high quality bushcraft knife that rivals knives that cost (literally) ten times as much. The classic "Scandi" edge makes woodworking a pleasure.

I have since carried this knife on a camping trip in the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains and used it side-by-side with a Mora #1 Buscraft knife. No comparison. The Condor out-performed the Mora in all aspects except weight savings.
