Condor Knife and Tool has been a supplier since the year of 1787, first founded in Solingen, Germany. The quality of their tools caused Solingen to become the cutlery capital of the world. In 1964, the company formed Imacasa with a new plant in El Salvador and provided training for the new local employees back in Germany. The factory still runs today and produces the finest quality machetes, Scandi knives, axes, shovels, and hand tools. In 2004, Imacasa created a fine line of tools and knives for both European and North American markets.

Blades at Condor are made from 420 HC Stainless Steel or 1075 High Carbon Steel. They are heat treated and annealed to approximately 50-55 Rockwell C. Every edge is finished by hand then polished to razor sharpness. Condor’s axe heads are made from 1060 High Carbon Steel, heat treated, and annealed to 50-55 Rockwell C.

To keep your Condor knife sharp, use a diamond stone, then proceed to a wet stone. For a Condor machete, a belt sander with 120 grit paper is probably best. A file would work well also. The best scandi grind is 12 degrees.
