Our latest Badass Knife of the Week continues to prove our theory that sometimes the best utility knife is the simplest knife.

The Condor Tool & Knife Rodan is built for one thing and one thing only — work.

Here is a good overview from IslandOutdoors1 on YouTube:

Absent of all gimmicks and unnecessary technology, the Rodan is simplicity at its best. The 5.25-inch blade is made from 1075 high carbon steel, a workmanlike alloy that’s tough as nails and easy to get razor sharp on the fly.

Black epoxy powder coating on the blade complements the steel by providing some extra corrosion resistance while dampening the reflective properties of the steel. The blade also features a no-nonsense drop point blade profile, which can tackle tasks around the campfire without thinking twice.

The handle on the tough knife is made of polypropylene and conceals a hidden tang. Aside from offering texture for a secure grip and comfort for hours of use, the polypropylene handle is nearly indestructible.

Rounding out the knife is a lanyard hole near the pommel and a black handcrafted leather sheath for easy carry.
