Condor Knives - Rodan-new bushcraft blade

Postby stitcher » Fri Sep 06, 2013 7:49 am

Intrigued by the price and the quality as well as the following Condor knives has, I finally decided on a Rodan after reading loads of reviews. At $30 it's nearly a no brainer, made of 1075 high carbon steel in el Salvador, and extremely overbuilt. This style comes in several blade lengths of which the rodan is the smallest, and I have yet to decide which of the larger(VAran and Kumunga) I will buy next. I haven't had it out for testing yet, but out of the box I am impressed, the edge is pretty sharp already and should be excellent with some stropping, the sheath is well made and heavy, and the grind and finishing is perfectly suitable, especially for a knife of this price. Condor's entire line of products looks excellent for the price, and have many different blades for outdoor use. Here is a link to buy the rodan on amazon, http://www.amazon.com/Condor-5-25-Inch- ...

Well I've been thoroughly using this thing, dropped several saplings, lots of limbing, and some heavy chopping just for fun. It holds its edge very well, and I am more pleased the more I use it!

Looks like a great utility knife. Thanks for the review!

Sure! Quality steel is my passion, and the Condor products are worth a look if you're on a budget and need serious performance!

I have a Condor LEK on the way, a more compact utility blade, 1075 carbon steel, full tang with a micarta handle. Overall 7 1/8" with a 3 1/8" flat ground blade. Should be an excellent general use knife for small tasks to accompany the Rodan which serves more for heavy tasks. I really like the Condor line, solid performers for those of use who need working blades without a large price tag.

I just picked up one of the Condor 13"bladed parangs. Like Sticher said a couple of years ago, it' was a steal and is very good quality. This length blade is designed for up close and personal heavy duty work. I would recommend this product.
