We might have written about the knives Joe Flowers designs a time or ten. We love the look of his knives, the cleverness of his designs, and the historical homage that’s often found with his work. The Condor Cavelore is no exception. This knife is like the highly functional Bushlore married the stylishly historic Otzi and had a baby. They named that baby the Cavelore. It is, of course, a knife that is as functional as it is cool as heck.
The Condor Cavelore features a 4.3” 1095 carbon steel blade with a blade thickness of 0.12”, a forged finish, and a Scandi grind. This utilitarian blade shape is incredibly versatile. Both the 1095 steel and the Scandi grind are easily sharpened to a razor-sharp edge, even in the field. Not only is this knife incredibly utilitarian, it’s stylish with a look that is highly reminiscent of a knapped knife.
The burnt American Hickory handles are attached to the full tang with a wire wrap. The handle length is about 5” with a thickness of just under an inch. They’re lightly contoured for a more comfortable grip and have a slight finger guard. It has a lanyard hole and a leather lanyard. It comes with a handcrafted, welted leather dangler sheath.
