One of the coolest looking machetes on the market, the Bush Cutlass by Condor combines the length and reach of a cutlass with the low price point of a machete.
Great for chopping through brush or for backyard battles against fruit or milk jugs, the Bush Cutlass can be both very functional and very fun!
As with all Condor products, the 24" blade on the Bush Cutlass is very high quality. Made out of 1075 High Carbon Steel and having a Convex Edge, this blade will hold an edge very well.
As if getting a great machete wasn't enough of a reason to get the Bush Cutlass, it also comes with a very high quality leather sheath. The sheath holds the machete securely and even swivels along the belt loop.
Carbon steel offers an exceptionally strong and resilient metal for knife blades. It holds an edge very well, the trade-off being that it is not a stainless steel.
Carbon steel will develop a dull gray finish after use, especially when used in wet conditions. This is normal and is not a flaw in the metal; actually, it will somewhat improve the resistance to corrosion. This effect is only superficial and does not mean that your blade will be weakened or any less useful.
If you wish to help counter this effect, lightly coat the blade in oil before storage or use, especially if used in a moist environment.
