Unlike some of the other brands, Condor Tool & Knife releases far fewer models each year. This has some upsides and downsides. The upside? You can better digest the new stuff. The downside? There are fewer new things to marvel at.
Last year, Condor TK released a small selection of new items, a few of which turned out to be pretty huge hits. Let’s see what they have in store this year.
The first item on the docket is the Cloudburst Axe. This looks like a pretty classic axe with a naturally finished 1060 high carbon steel head. The 23-inch handle is American Hickory.
The Compact Dagger is exceptionally thin and narrow with a dual-edged blade made of 1075 carbon steel. It has black traction powder coating and features Micarta handle scales. The Kydex sheath has a ball chain, so you can wear it around your neck.
Eco Survival Golok Machete
The Eco Survival Golok Machete is another entry into their “eco” series. They previously released the Eco Parang and the Eco Survival El Salvador Machete. It’s 14.5 inches long with a natural blade finish and a high impact polypropylene handle.
It comes with a ballistic nylon sheath.
Indian Throwing Tomahawk
There are two different Indian Throwing Tomahawks available this year. The first has a head that’s 5 3/4″ x 2 2/3″ and the second has a head that’s 7 1/4″ x 2 3/4.” Both have hickory handles with leather sheaths.
The Mayflower is a fixed blade with a 3-inch blade made from 420HC stainless steel. It has a polished finish and Micarta handle scales. The sheath is made from leather.
Primitive Bush Knife (Carbon Steel)
The Primitive Bush Knife was probably Condor TK’s biggest hit last year. It was even one of our Badass Knives of the Week. Since it was popular, they decided to bring it back in two new versions. Both of the new models now have 1075 high carbon steel blades. The first is has the 8-inch blade from last year, but the second has a longer 12-inch blade.
Next up is the Swamp Romper, a simple yet strong fixed blade. Using 1075 carbon steel, the 4.5-inch blade has a drop point with a polished finish. The handle is made from walnut, and it comes with a handcrafted leather sheath that swivels to prevent it from laying at an awkward angle if you’re hopping in and out of a truck.
This small hatchet has a unique look. The axehead, which is 5×6 inches, has a fairly large cutout that helps reduce the overall weight of the hatchet. The handle is made from walnut, and the blade has a blasted finish. I couldn’t find any info on the overall length. It comes with a leather belt sheath.
Finally, there’s the Yari Spear. The Yari is a term used for a traditionally made Japanese spear that’s used in the martial arts. It’s 14.5 inches with a 1075 carbon steel spearhead. It also has an epoxy black powder coating. The handle is made from burnt American ash with a portion of paracord wrapped around the middle to offer a grip. A leather sheath covers the spearhead.
