    Condor Bushlore knife

    This is the Condor copy or variant of the Ray Mears knife:
    Its the Hardwood handle model CTK232-4.3HC. The blade is 4 5/16 inches long (11 cm) and the handle is about 12 cm, overall length is about 23 cm or 9 5/16 inches, the blade is 3 mm thick.

    Its got a full scandi grind and is a full tang knife, its made from good quality german 1075 carbon steel and is very sharp, the blade has a grey coating on it designed to stop it from rusting, this is a bit worn and is somewhat ugly, it works and does not seem to add any drag to the blade but if I was keeping it I would possibly remove it.

    It comes with a very nice brown leather pouch style sheath of good thick leather, that has been stitched and riveted.

    It also comes with the original box, brochure, and plastic bag.

    I have used it a bit and sanded and then oiled the handle, however it is still in great condition and will make terrific user, think of it as a Mora or bahco knife on steroids, there are a ton of videos on youtube of this knife being used, abused and come back asking for more.

    In the shops these are $99, yours for $49 plus postage.
