The blade on the Condor Tool & Knife Bushnecker is made from 1075 high carbon steel and is heat treated and annealed to about 50-55 Rockwell hardness. The edge is hand finished and polished to razor sharpness. The blade features a natural, bare metal look, which has the appeal of a well worn pair of jeans. There is a special treatment over the top of the blade to help repel rust. The paracord wrapped handle is made with real 500 lb test parachute cord that has seven inner strands for further use in a situation where one piece of rope might not be enough. One of the strands inside can also be teased apart further, providing fishing line, sewing thread or help in any situation where a fine, sturdy line is needed. The included Kydex sheath with breakaway ball chain necklace is handcrafted with quality and pride and is impervious to the elements.
