    My son has the Varan which is the smaller brother to the Kamunga. It's a good chopper so I can imagine that the Kamunga must be a great chopper. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one from that line.

    Good luck!

    I really like a khukri. They look good and there are a lot of different styles.
    http://www.gurkhas-kukris.com/ These guys have a lot of good reviews and they make them for the UK military. Fifty bucks buys a lot of knife there too.

    If you are going to go with a Condor, which from what I understand are excellent large blade knives, I would order from Ben at Baryonyx Knife Company. He has excellent customer service, and he will inspect your blade and make sure you get a good one. He also provides an extra service on a lot of his merchandise where he will make adjustments and touch up edges to make sure the knife you receive is perfect. I only own one small blade Condor, and I made the mistake of not getting it from Ben. I got a crappy one. Condor's quality control has been suspect in the past, but I think they are trying to work on that now. Cheers!

    They scaled back new model releases this year to focus on improving quality control and production time.

    You can snapcut with it by only gripping the back end of the handle, sort of like a leuku, but its still not going to be a good dedicated chopper.

    If you want a Becker, the BK-4 is suposed to be a great chopper, the BK-7 an BK-9 are suposed to be decent too.

    I'd go with a Kukri. The Kabar heavy Bowie can be used as a chopper-- a little short tho.

    I picked up an factory second Ontario Kukri off fleebay for under $50 a while back. http://www.ebay.com/itm/ONTARIO-KUKR...item2327683a19 The only flaw I found in mine was a bad grind job on the bevel near the handle. It didn't affect the blade at all, purely cosmetic. I thought it was a pretty food deal for a 1/4" kukri.
