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 machete arrived brand new and in retail packaging. It was boxed up and packaged very well. The machete was wrapped in plastic and not even inserted in the sheath. The sheath is separately wrapped in plastic and everything was inside the factory box.
I've heard and read so many good things about Condor machetes. After deciding on this Golok for it's size and shape, I found that what everyone is saying is absolutely true. This will be the last machete I will be needing in this size. If I ever do get another machete it will be another Condor, and only because I might want one of their larger sizes.
The machete is sharp right out of the box. It is a good size for throwing in a backpack or clearing limbs out of a trail. I have been using it a lot in both of those scenarios. The handle is still very firmly attached to the blade. No loose handle like you would find with cheaper machetes. The blade is thick and solid. You aren't going to shake the blade and make that metal warbling sound that you can with cheap machetes.
I like the design of the handle. The curved design with the bigger and thicker end keeps the machete in place in my hand throughout use. It is very comfortable to hold and use throughout the day. My hand is not fatigued after an extended period of use.
The leather sheath is the best I have ever seen. It is so well constructed. This is definitely worth every penny. I can't stand the cheap nylon sheath that you typically get with a machete. This leather sheath gets used a lot. It's either protecting the blade from cutting stuff in my backpack or allowing me to carry on my side. I don't put the sheath on my side if I'm going to be doing a lot of sitting, it does swivel and allow you to sit, but for me it is mostly when I'm going to be out in the woods.
One day I left the machete in the floorboard of my car overnight and into the next day. We had a very cold night and a hot day. The temperature fluctuation caused moisture to build up on the metal and retain in the leather sheath. When I pulled the machete out it had a little bit of rust at the edge of the blade. A little sanding and the rust is gone. This was my fault. I'm not used to the leather and metal combination . I won't be leaving it in a place where the temperature will fluctuate rapidly. My car may have had a little moisture in the floorboard as well.
I'm not an expert at sharpening things. This edge is one of the easiest edges to work with for me. I have a puck with some honing oil that I use on all yard equipment. I've been using the puck on this machete and can keep it very sharp. Like I said, I'm no expert and can still keep a good edge on it.
If you are reading this without an edit then the machete is still working fine and everything is holding up well. If anything changes I will update this review. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
