Best MacheteBy: raymond willaim on 14 August 2019The Condor Golok is the femme fatale of machetes. Its gorgeous, flowing design makes me dread getting it dirty! Don’t be deceived by its beauty, though. This is a versatile tool than can do the job of everything from a hedge trimmer to a chainsaw! Its 14″, 1075 carbon steel blade makes easy work of clearing a campsite or cutting through thick underbrush. The hardwood handle sits fast on an extended tang. The handle is made deliberately rough to promote a firmer grip. Even with sweaty palms, you can keep swinging this golok with confidence. The blade is covered in a jet black epoxy finish, giving the blade an almost sinister appeal. 1075 steel is easy to put an edge on and will take some abuse. It might not be as tough as 1095 (which has more carbon content and is great for choppers) but at this price point and with Condors experience the steel is pretty decent. Although the Condor is made in El Salvador, it’s German-built and engineered by a company whose roots trace to the 18th century. So you can rely on Condor’s design being well tested! One potential drawback of a golok vs traditional machetes is that they are more cumbersome to draw from their sheath. But as most outdoor tasks don’t require wild-west-shootout draw times it shouldn’t be a huge deal for most. In summary, this is a great knife for a great price and highly recommended.
