If you’re looking for a decently made, economical all around camp knife that’s rugged, well built, as well as visually appealing – look no further than the Garuda by Condor Tool & Knife. Designed by Joe Flowers, an outdoorsman from North Carolina, this knife is tough enough to do it all. This is an economically priced, large fixed blade. Don’t look for perfection in every curve, but it is well made and sturdy. The 5″ 1075 high carbon steel blade is epoxy powder coated to assist in corrosion resistance and full tang for added strength. The Micarta handles are oversized for use with gloves or for those with larger hands and it is nicely curved and contoured to fit the hand excellently. It comes with a very sharp convex grind and ballistic nylon sheath that can be attached to your belt or MOLLE gear no problem.

More about Condor:
The quality of the swords, military knives, agricultural tools and household cutlery they manufactured made Solingen the cutlery capital of the world. Over the generations, the world’s largest manufacturer of swords and knives found it necessary to expand operations to other countries to better serve its customers.
In 1964, the company formed Imacasa with a new plant in Santa Ana, El Salvador and filled it with state of the art German equipment. Some of the original local employees who were sent to Solingen for extensive training forty years ago are still working in the factory today, turning out the finest quality machetes, shovels and other hand tools.
Imacasa’s Central American operations were sold in the 1980’s to local investors. Today, Imacasa is one of the largest machete and shovel manufacturers in the world operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to fill an increasing worldwide demand for its products.
In 2004, Imacasa developed a first quality line of tools and knives for the North American and European outdoor markets. CONDOR TOOL & KNIFE was born.
