Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! My Condor Hudson Bay Camp knife came in today. What a cleaver! This thing is wide. The blade is 8 1/4" x 2" x 3/16" of 1075 carbon steel. It weighs 14.5 oz. Handles are riveted on hardwood. I am not sure, but they look a bit reddish. Maybe mahogany? It comes with a heavy leather swivel sheath. The knife is flat ground and came with a convex edge. It was pretty sharp, but I would prefer it a bit less obtuse. The flats of the blade are painted in black epoxy. Balance point is right at the plunge line of the grind, so it is slightly blade heavy. The Condor version is wider than the Bark River version. It is slightly thinner, too. The Barkie is 7/32" thick with a full convex grind. The blade is 8 1/4" long and 1 3/4" at its widest point at the "hump" on the spine. Steel is A2. Of course, I'm comparing a $200 + knife to a $40 one here, but the Barkie is closer to original specs of the Hudson Bay knife in blade profile. I got the Condor as a beater. The Bark River version weighs 15.5 oz and balances abut at the bolster/handle junction, so even though it is heavier, it feels lighter in use than the Condor. It can out slice the Condor, too, but I can fix that. I had planned to do a full comparison in chopping and splitting, but the rain ran me in to my porch. So I took some time to strip and reprofile the Condor.
