Condor Tool and Knife Fixed Blade Knives
I've had this knife for a few years now and its not just the price that makes this great. I've taken this blade on every outing, even just a day of fishing. Holds a great edge, the rubber grip makes it a breeze to grip when wet or dry and this thing is tough as nails!
Badass. Nice edge. Feels good in the hands
Bought this knife to se if Cold Steel 'still has it' in the QC department compared to my 13BN Master Tanto of 35 years ago. 'Bought a inch longer, slightly thinner blade, Kraton grip STILL just as grippy(though brass hilt & pommel delineate the extra cost). Handle has a nice palm swell on both sides & Secure-Ex sheath would be nice to carry over(no way). A serious contender in the self defense market, it feels as if I could pry open a car door with it, if necessary. Keep up the good work, Cold Steel.
I'm generally pleased with United Cutlery products & the commander is no exception. Solid little knife, grip a bit small for my hands but sports a nice hilt, nonetheless, keeping your hands off the quite sharp blade. Sheath a little flimsy, though serviceable, balances out my firearm shoulder rig nicely. I'd like to see how this little tanto throws with its very blade-heavy profile(& very sharp point). Would make a good boot knife as the flexible sheath could be sewn into most anything. Priced right also.
I bought this knife as a present for a friend. He really enjoyed his gift and I also bought one for myself.
Outstanding performance in splitting kindling. Works flawlessly and has perfect grind to break down dry wood. Sharp enough to creat feather sticks on the smaller pieces. Much safer than using a hatchet and saves abuse on your knife. Is e wooden baton to strike.
One might wonder what an old woman who lives in a large city might want with a froe. There's the large street tree in front of my house, which loses branches in a big wind, and the 3 story maple that shades my back yard, but must be trimmed to provide some sun for my lettuce and tomato plants. So I do some wood processing: because I grill my beef steaks, chicken thighs and lamb steaks on my hibachi over a wood fire (no petroleum laced charcoal, thank you). The wood smoke enhances the flavors and I have to fit the wood into my little cast iron hibachi. So...I need a froe, and this one fits the bill.
Nice tool, it lives in my camper and is there when I need it.
