    Default Condor Bushlore or Kephart?

    So I am going to sell off my Becker BK2. It is just too much of a knife for me lol. I am looking at the COndor Bushlore or Kephart. I like both but having trouble deciding. While they are cheap I am only going to get one. Question is, which one? I suspect either will work for me. My mora works great, just is not full tang, and both of these will do fine battoning. So which do you guys like best?

    Hmmmm... i have the bushlore but dont have the kephart. What shape do you like better? I think the kephart has a full flat grind with a convex edge. My older bushlore has the scandi-vex edge, or whatever the heck they call it. I think the new bushlores are closer to a true scandi. But verify if thats right or not. My condor handle is fairly comfortable, dont know about the kephart.

    I like both shapes honestly. I think either would be a good. I do plan to get the Baryonyx special finish on whatever I get. I am better sharpening scandi lol. Seems the Bushlore is more of scandi than the Kephart.

    i liked the kephart better; had both; gave the bush lore to my oldest son; BOTH got the special attention from ben at baryonyx (vendor here). well worth the couple of bucks to have the grind just right ...

    Tough one. I have both from Condor. I think the Kep is a much more graceful and easy to use blade. It is good for just about anything and especially cleaning game and fish. But I do not like the finished blade.
    I do like the grind on the bushlore a lot.
    Tough...I got nothing. By both

    I have both, had to re-profile both. After that either one works great.

    I Love my bushlore. It has taken a serious beating and is still (with minimal work) shaving sharp. Never handled the kephart.

    I accidently voted kephart. Bushlore is a comfy blade.

    I'm with spiffy on this. Been seriously considering both these guys as well as the bushcraft basic. The only thing that puts me off on the bushcraft is no finger guard on the handles just a straight shot to running your fingers onto the blade when boring or gouging.

    the Kephart is a more nimble blade, which is why I voted for it. However, they both feel nice. I haven't compared their performance, though.
