About Us

CONDOR® TOOL & KNIFE traces its proud history back to 1787, the year GEBR 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  with a new plant in Santa Ana, El Salvador, filling it with state of the art German equipment and sending some of their local employees to Solingen for extensive training. Today, the factory is turning out the finest quality machetes, knives, axes, shovels and other hand tools.

’s Central American operations were sold in the 1980’s to local investors. Today,   is one of the largest machete and shovel manufacturers in the world operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to fill an increasing worldwide demand for its products.

In 2004, developed a first quality line of tools and knives for the North American and European outdoor markets. CONDOR® TOOL & KNIFE was born.



I am doing a review on the new primitive bushcraft knife .i have version 1 as well .ill start off by saying i have no complaints about the version 1 . I have used it for over a year and its done great .no chips .or handle problems .i went to rick in florida who works for condor and told him a lot of guys like the knife wich is 420 hc and asked for one made of a higher carbon .they got with matt graham and got one together.and i must say thier 420hc is some of the best ive seen .other more expensive knives made of the same steel .waved and chipped .i took a browning black label to cut on a small christmas tree and had moon shaped chips and waves .so way to go the version 2 is a 1075 hc blade 3mm thick wich is also blasted satin as a finish and a micarta handle wich feels great in the hand and is perfectly finish flush with the blade .ive used it as a t and e knife ive cut logs .chopped on oak trees and took both to my bushsrvival classes and a wide range of guys has used it and done everything down to cutting tires in half and it has remained sharp .no chips.or waves.the handle is still tight.the difference ive noticed is the new version holds an edge longer and feels better olmost as a cushion cause your whole hand can purchase the knife for chopping and control .i would recommend both but for the serious die hard bushcrafter try ver 2 u will be happy you did

Very nice design on the blade. Looks great for all round wood use plus EDC.
