The Condor Bushlore 232-4.3HC is a popular bushcraft knife, for a great price. With a blade length of 10.9 cm the Condor Bushlore is very all-round. Large enough for almost all bushcraft tasks, and small enough for finer wood work.
The blade of the Condor Bushlore is made from 1075 carbon steel. A strong type of steel that is easy to sharpen, and can also handle quite a lot. 1075, however, is not completely stainless. As such you need to clean it regularly and add a drop of oil once in a while. The knife has a strong full-tang construction. This means that the thickness of the blade runs throughout the entire handle.
The handle is made from walnut wood. The Condor Bushlore comes in a solid leather sheath with a belt loop that has enough room for belts up to 6.8 cm.
