Garuda is a mythological king of birds in several Eastern cultures. It is believed that the eagle-like figure is a protector and watchful creature. It’s an apt name for a knife designed to be a used in the outdoors in all types of environments and situations.

The Condor Tool & Knife Garuda series has a few knives, but the one we’re highlighting has a 5-inch black traction powder-coated blade made from 1075 high carbon steel, an alloy that’s tough and takes an edge easily. Its drop-point profile is simple and effective.

Here’s a nice video review from Everyday Tactical Vids

Unlike many of the fixed blades from Condor, the Garuda features handsome Micarta scales with a pinned construction.

Micarta not only carries an interesting pattern but the synthetic material is impervious to cracking and warping.

At an overall length of 10.5 inches, the Garuda comes with a ballistic nylon sheath for easy carry.

It’s time you get a protector like the Garuda in your life.
