Sharp, easy to sharpen steel, holds an edge well, comfortable grip, strong, not too heavy and a world-class sheath.
High quality, heavy, very nice feeling.
A damn good knife for the price! I wish they would do away with that stupid waste of blade length; the finger choil! I mean, if the handle were there in the first place you would have the same thing! They should at least make it optional. How about saw-teeth on the spine? Adds one more function with no extra weight. Another improvement I would like is a divot in the handle to use as a bearing block for a fire bow. The handle is a soft material so just drilling one with a large bit is not an option but maybe a stainless steel cup could be inserted for that purpose. To me, that is essential on an outdoorsman's knife like this. As for the sheath, I prefer Kydex; it's more secure, immune to the weather and often can be worn in several positions. Nonetheless, a good choice for the budget-minded.
The quality is excellent ! The total package met my exspectations !
I bought this for use around the campsite. After using it camping, I now use it around the house quite a bit as well. The heavy blade gives this tool all the power I need to hack through alleyway overgrowth, as well as prepare kindling for the fire pit. I'm also impressed by how well the blade maintains an edge. I've only had to work a nick out once from when a vine had grown through a fence, unbeknownst to me. Also, the handle design is impeccable, keeping it in your grasp far beyond minor fatigue. Overall an excellent tool for whatever you need a 14" blade for.
Really nice and sturdy work. Good materials and balance. Only thing I would have liked is for it to have a sharper edge on it.
There is another trout knife on here I have that I love for everything. Went to order and sold out, so bought this one, ehh, it's ok but nothing like the other
Pock marks and rust, not used and indoors
About Condor Tool and Knife
The man behind the Condor Tool & Knife designs:
Arlan started A. D. Lothe & Associates, Inc. in 1988 as a design, new product development and marketing consulting company that specializes in knives, hand tools and kitchen items.
Over the years Arlan has designed for and consulted with many nationally known firms, including Chicago Cutlery, Camillus Knife, Fiskars, Gerber, Wusthof Trident, Warner Manufacturing Company, WoodworkerÂs Supply, Outers Laboratories, Condor Tool & Knife, Inc and many others. Arlan supports his knife and tool design work with a collection of over 3,000 knives, over 300 axes and a library of hundreds of knife and tool books and antique catalogs from around the world.
A most notable project was his design of the Miracle Blade 3 knives as seen on TV, with Chef Tony, which turned out to be the best selling knife line in the history of direct response television.
In 1995 Arlan and his client were awarded the ÂBest New Product from the State of MinnesotaÂ from QVC and he went on to do over 120 live shows selling his Slices Perfect Kitchen Slicing System. He has also done shows for QVC in the UK and Germany.
In 2000 Arlan was awarded two ÂRetailersÂ Choice AwardsÂ for two of his FireStone axe designs at the National Hardware Show in Chicago. There were only 25 such awards given that year, selected from over 250,000 items on display.
Arlan is an avid hunter, outdoorsman, wood worker, gourmet chef and a knife and axe thrower. Most of his designs come from practical experience and 35 years of creative endeavors.
In 2006 Arlan was inducted into the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame for Âout standing designÂ. The IKTHF is made up of the finest knife and axe throwers in the USA who have sanctioned competitions all over the country. One of his axe designs, the FireStone Sport Axe, has won more competitions than any other axe in the history of the sport.
Arlan holds over 20 patents on items such as knives, hand tools, broad heads, knife sharpeners and others.
ArlanÂs design and product development philosophies are very elemental; make something better or develop some thing new that satisfies the wants and needs of the end user, while providing high perceived value and unique designs to better the competition, while providing clients with engineering that can be produced at above normal profit margins, which sell through well and brings repeat business. Being a Âknife nutÂ him self he understands the psyche of other Âknife nutÂsÂ which helps him to create Âjust got to haveÂ designs even when a buyer all ready owns hundreds of knives.
Arlan and his wife and business partner Dottie live in central Wisconsin in a log home they designed and built from trees they cut themselves from their 160 acre woodland farm they call ÂValhallaÂ. They have an office, design studio and conference center in their home; two prototype shops, one for wood and plastics and another for metal. There is also a knife and axe throwing range, archery range, rifle and pistol ranges, trap range, 22 miles of trails, three ponds and at the back of the property a 20ÂX32Â Desert Storm military tent, which serves as a Whitetail Deer hunting camp.
