Top 25 Best Selling Blades of 2017: #22 Condor Primitive Bush Knife

TOP 25 BEST SELLING BLADES OF 2017: #22 Condor Primitive Bush Knife
Presented by

Condor is known for their array of useful, affordable cutting tools inspired by traditional knives and machetes from around the world. Their Primitive Bush Knife was designed by Matt Graham, a survivalist who is best known for co-hosting Seasons 4, 5, and 6 of the Discovery Channel’s Dual Survival.

According to Graham he “..once walked off into the wilderness on the Winter Solstice and returned on the Summer Solstice.” His Bush Knife is meant as a do-it-all companion blade for just such a solitary trip. Smaller than a machete but larger than a typical companion knife, the 8-inch survival knife can flex into both roles, hacking and chopping across remote terrain, performing delicate tasks, and – with its hollow handle rivets and dagger-like tip – even working as an improvised hunting spear when lashed to a pole.

Fueled by Graham’s fame, good reviews, and a price that hits a sweet spot in the marketplace, the Primitive Bush Knife continues to keep the cash register ringing. The base model features a 420HC blade and a hardwood handle and in 2016, Condor issued a blasted 1075 / Micarta version of the knife. Both variations include an accompanying leather sheath.

The TOP 25 Best Selling Blades of 2017 is based on a ranking of year-to-date dollar sales per day of all non-kitchen cutlery at The Virginia-based dealer stocks the largest catalog of cutlery in the world and serves the most diverse customer base of any knife retailer.

We chose to remove knives available only at from consideration. Exclusives that would have otherwise made the list include:
the HAP40 Spyderco Delica in Mahogany Pakkawood
the HAP40 Spyderco Endura in Mahogany Pakkawood
the s35vn Orange Southard Positron
the s35vn Tanto Andre De Villiers Beast Flipper
the Svord Peasant Knife Exclusives

Certain knives available for pre-order, namely the ZT 0055, Benchmade 87, and DPx HEST/F Urban were also purposefully excluded even though based on pre-orders it’s clear they are among the year’s most popular.
