Condor Kumunga

Are you looking for a big knife at a small price?

The Condor Kumunga may be just the thing for you then.

I picked up one of these the other day from Going Gear and have been using the heck out of it for the past couple of days.

It has a 10 1/4" long blade of 3/16" thick 1075 and it's 15 1/2" overall.

Think of it as a short, thick machete capable of doing big and small work but doing it a little worse than a smaller utility knife or bigger chopper. As a Jack of All Trades, it's certainly up to the tasks set in front of it.

It's priced around $40 and comes with a leather sheath.

I find the polypropylene handle comfortable to hold and it has been comfortable during use so far. I haven't used it for hours on end yet but our time together is still short so I'll let you know once we've done some more work together.

This knife is seeing a long-term career as a fire pit knife and splitting down firewood and making fuzz sticks are things it does with delight.

Give 'em a look. I'm sure glad I took a chance on this one so far and I suspect you will be too.

Thanks for reading,


B
