CONDOR TOOL & KNIFE traces its proud history back to 1787, the year GERB WEYESBERG COMPANY was founded in Solingen, Germany. 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.

Good bushcraft axe at a reasonable price
For the price of this axe it’s hard to go wrong. Remember, you’re not buying (or paying for) a Hults Bruk or Gransfors Bruk axe.
and essentially useless. Once it got sharpened
Came unsharp, and essentially useless. Once it got sharpened, however, it was a beast! It’s not the best hatchet I own, but it’ll take a beating, and chop some wood up. For the price, I would recommend a Husqvarna, however.
Very good quality hatchet
I have owned this hatchet for nearly two years now. I have used this hatchet for many things, from bowyery to splitting firewood while camping. This little hatchet has been used extensively for two years now and it has hardly weathered. Its hickory handle is extremely strong and the only maintenance I have had to do on it so far is drive a new wedge into the top. The head of the hatchet seems to be made of relatively high quality, relatively hard steel. The edge dulls very slowly, but it does take a while to resharpen to shaving sharpness. In two years I have only had to sharpen it maybe 6 times, and I have used it quite a bit. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good outdoor hatchet that is an alternative to a high quality hatchet like the Gransfors Brooks.

Very nice hatchet that I take with me on just about every trip into the woods. Can’t beat it for the price!
It’s good for the price I paid.
At the current $65 price I would have passed. I paid $45 including $5 shipping USPS. Shipped and arrived promptly, sooner than expected.
Very nice axe
Overall quality and fit & finish is top notch. The mask/sheath is super nice. The size/shape of the handle is perfect (for my large-ish hands), and grain orientation is perfect. My only con is that the cheeks are a bit thick, but that’s not a big deal. For a little over a year now I’ve used this axe for splitting firewood while camping, and for various little bushcraft projects, and it has always been great at these tasks.
Comes with a nice mask that isn’t pictured for some reason
This axe overall is a great value. For me it has handled a lot of use and has held up great and shown to be reliable. most of all it comes with a nice heavy leather snap strap mask that really makes it a reasonable priced package. I don’t understand why they would neglect to have an images of the mask. I pulled a quick pic only to show the mask, I don’t believe it is the same axe as the length looks longer. Either way it IS the same mask and its pretty nice :)
amazing budget bushcraft axe
This hatchet is my new favorite for bushcraft needs.comes nice and sharp, grain in the handle is perfect, leather sheath is amazing. I couldn’t be happier. And at 1/3 the cost of a gransfors bruks this Axe is definitely competition. I sanded the handle down and gave it a Norwegian teak stain (dark brown) and I added a paracord wrap near the head to protect the handle from dents. I love this little axe, do not hesitate to buy this. I could go on and on about positives and have no negative feedback at all.
Looking for the Marble’s Camp Axe?
I bought this as a gift for a farmer friend that has been helping me out with my garden. He was interested in my Marble’s camp axe, which is very similar. Since some may be interested in this axe because of Wranglerstar’s review of the oft-scarce Marble’s axe, permit me to do a comparison review. Holding these up side by side, it becomes apparent that the heads are almost identical. This one is stamped with Condor instead of Marble’s. There is also a stamp of “El Salvador” near the back — where the axe was made. I don’t mind, except that the letters are deep and are located right where I would center punch a pivot point for sharpening. I will punch a point, but it will have to be at least a quarter inch from the back, instead of an eighth. Still, the heads are identical, it comes with a somewhat polished edge which is dull. This blade will hold an edge for a reasonable amount of work, unless abused in dirt and rocks of course. The handle is very beefy, as other reviews pointed out. By comparison, the Marble’s handle looks slender and dainty. The Condor handle has a safety warning printed on the reverse in English and Spanish — it’s just a lot of blackness blocking out my view of the wood grain. I have half a mind to remove all of it with a spokeshave or orbital sander. For some reason, the wood is darker than the Marble’s, I doubt it is hickory but it seems stout given its thickness. This fits a large-handed individual well, and it has a much larger fawn’s foot than the Marble’s, which was a little on the small side. The grain orientation on mine was diagonal-ish toward the base, but almost straight on top, so I couldn’t find fault there. Overall, this IS the Marble’s camp axe albeit with a bigger handle that well, might not be hickory given the color. It is NOT varnished and will receive a linseed oil treatment without any sanding etc. Lastly, the sheath it comes with is great, they used ample leather to cover the top area and there is a hole rivet near the heel of the blade. Using this hold, the axe could be hung horizontally, blade facing up. The sheath is a bit snug and therefore difficult to wrap around the back and snap. I’m sure once I put a proper edge on the blade, there will be a little more wiggle room to made it convenient. It’s definitely a better looking sheath than one I could make. This axe is a great value given the sheath it comes with.
Really nice camp/pack hatchet, at an affordable price. It’s a little bigger than I thought, but still packable. Great adition to my little survival kit. Already split some big stumps with it. Works great.
