This… I want this so bad.

But as Latino, the idea of spending $85 on a machete is a bit shocking, specially since you can probably find one regular machete in Calle Ocho for $10.

And the price is also 2 Palmetto State Armory AR 15 stripped Lower.  Seriously, it does not make sense. I must be Spock logical, but my brain is whispering “Yeah, be like him during Pon farr!”

  1. Do you want a machete so good that your kids will fight over who inherits it? Then you buy a condor. I own two. The golok machete and the Atrox knife. They are both beasts in the yard and brush. A bud has the duku and it is every bit as good. The sheaths are excellent too. Not shitty but made from good stout leather. Well designed for carry. They used to be 20 less in general and were a steal back in the day. Now still very worth it.

  2. I am just amazed, though, because when Condor was young, they had very good blades for VERY competitive prices! Now, not so much,

  3. Did you not notice the bit in the ad where it states 10″ blade?

    It’s glorified kitchen knife, not an actual machete that’s, you know… useful for typical machete work.

  4. I’ve purchased a number of Condor blades. I rather like the pack golok ( or whatever they call it). However, for $85, and a 10″ blade, I’d chip in a few extra bucks and get a Kabar Bk&T BK9. A 9″ blade, heat-treated right, with proper grinding. It cuts, chops, and batons well. The included sheath will cover the blade and can be worn on a belt. It’s better in a pack. It’s much better to roll your own kydex.

    Condor is decent. It’s hit or miss on the grinding. Some of the blades are ground right, others are way too thick and blunt. The leather sheaths are typically decent.
