The Condor Cavelore Knife 3935-4.3HC is a bushcraft knife, inspired by the early tools from the Iron Age. The popular Condor Bushlore was used as a basis, and that design was completely modified. The blade is enhanced with a hammered, brut-de-forge-finish and the handle had an old-fashioned wrapping as modification.
The Condor Cavelore Knife is enhanced with a blade with a scandi-edge. That is a fine grind for wood work. A scandi-edge is also easy to sharpen. Even with limited means and while out in the field. You use this knife for light bushcraft tasks and wood work.
The blade of the Condor Cavelore is made from 1095 carbon steel. A strong type of steel that is easy to sharpen and can handle quite a bit. 1095, however, is not completely stainless. As such you need to clean it regularly and add a drop of oil once in a while. The handle is made from American hickory wood. This type of wood is known for its strength. It is for a reason that this type of wood has been used for axes and hammer handles for years. The handle is wound with bronze wire. This will discolour in time and form a patina which will make each knife unique.
The Condor Cavelore comes with a leather sheath. It is enhanced with a flexible, leather belt loop.
