Condor Boomslang Camp Knife

The Boomslang has recently been discontinued, which is a shame. This has always been a solid camp knife that can fulfill the roles of machete, chopper, and even woodcarver thanks to the broad finger choil that lets you choke up on the blade for more neutral balance. The Micarta handles offer just the right amount of grip and a shape that lets you choke back for maximum leverage as you chop. Being a Condor, it also comes with a high-quality leather sheath for protecting and carrying your blade. Pick one up now before they are gone.

Exotac may be the best thing that has happened to firestarters in recent memory. Their aluminum handled firesteels are manufactured in America and feature solid construction. The fireROD even has a small chamber for storing tinder so you always have something dry to catch the sparks which are sure to fly! We also love the nanoSTRIKER series which is perfect for your keychain. Pick some up and add it to your kit today.
