Dave Robarts: Got one few weeks back. I have pretty much same experience as you with mine.....its a beast for sure! Sharp blade, great edge, feels great in the hand and is really a tuff durable tool to have in the bush. I want to get one of their parang's next.
Cissell's Fellowship: Ok, I ordered one with the sheath. I will sand the handle a bit and give it a few coats of boiled linseed oil to protect it, as it gets humid here in south Texas. Thanks again for the great review. I also like to put a light coat of mink oil on the sheath to keep the leather supple and water resistant.
Cissell's Fellowship: I'm sold! Love my Bushlore knife.
threehundredsextilion Warrohmah FennecSuty: golok i from Indonesia Java
MDPrepper: Personally I'd go with the Golok for general purpose. . .though I prefer the Kukri in my terrain
Tim J: also have you tried the camp 14 or 18 by kershaw? curious about thickness and what not.
Tim J: which do you like best from the condor parang and the golok?
jqcyclops: Im with you.I have the"gator JR" and am unimpressed (Its my beater now),but the new line seems to be thicker and the sheaths look super nice.They have a new bolo and kukri I believe.
That being said,with your recommendation (Although the Kabar line looks good too,lol) Ill be putting a condor machete in my"amazon cart"real soon.Thanks again!!!
MDPrepper: No problem, always glad to assist a fellow prepper/survivalist. I don't like the gerber gator at all (great grip but terribly dull blade. . .I've got a vid on it) Haven't tried any of the newer Gerber's as I was unimpressed by the gator
jqcyclops: Thanks for the quick reply,I appreciate it.I suppose I should just look but have you did any reviews for the new gerber gator/bolo/kukri yet?
MDPrepper: Well let me say first that I'm very biased in favor of the Condor line of machetes. They're bigger, thicker, and heavier than most but I think they are certainly the most durable overall. Cold Steel is the best if you want to stay "low cost" but for heavy use and reasonable price I'd stick with the Condor Line (and I own plenty of Cold Steel Machetes but I always reach for my Condor for serious work)
jqcyclops: OK,I own several Cold Steel Machetes but am thinking on getting a more "premium"machete with a better sheath,nicer finish,etc.As far as machetes go,between condor/kabar/ontario,which one would you recommend? Im a hiker/camper/survivalist...
MDPrepper: Indeed!! Pick one up, you'll love it!
Airborne Creeper: you know, a machete, to use for my household chores :D
Forester226: Great review
Muayti: got 1 today :3
irish pikehunter: Condor are quickly becoming one of my favourite brands. The sheaths are quality.
MDPrepper: Yes it is!! Buy one. . .you'll love it!
