James Hart: Unfortunately, Americans have been taught to believe that machete's have to be thin and flexible, but in reality, a machete used in a real jungle are often heavy and thick so they will last long and stay sharp. I just ordered one for myself, and will use it to clear lots of brush. For those who say its too heavy, just remember to let the blade do the work, use your arm for control. Stay Frosty.
presterjohn71: After owning one for a while I can honestly say although it is good at some things I regret buying it. For bushcraft and shelter building a Parang would have been a better choice ( for me at least).
docwilkey: Great blade!
13:12am: i know this is not that important, but i need to scratch this itch... golok is golok, and machete is machete, its different, so its not golok machete (even if the seller (condor) said so ) im from indonesian, and there is no such thing as golok machete, even though their purpose are basically the same :D nice video btw, sorry im talking something O.O.T.
Přemysl Šedý: I havejust made a comparison of cutting tools including 2 Condor blades. One them is this one. I have to say, jis is probably the worst machete, I have ever met. it loks great, but in the forest, You need things to work, not only to look great. This tool is holy crap.
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
KJV Prepper: also have you tried the camp 14 or 18 by kershaw? curious about thickness and what not.
KJV Prepper: 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.
