I recently purchased a Pack Golok from Amazon. There was a defect in the blade. I'm not sure if it was just cosmetic or structural also. I contacted Condor. They asked that I send it to them and they would send me a new one at no charge for me. Condor paid for all shipping. The new one had a couple areas on the blade that were poorly ground and a couple small rolls. I put it to sandpaper for a few minutes and fixed those issues. The handle on the replacement wasn't as nice as the first e.g. rivets not perfectly flush, etc. Overall the new Pack Golok is fine. I tested it on some suckles which it destroyed with ease. I checked the blade, and there was no apparent damage, rolling, etc. to the blade. I think the replacement will do except that I will likely sand the handle. I have other Condor blades, and this is the first that had any issue. I'm pleased that Condor promptly replaced the Pack Golok. I'm a little displeased that someone didn't hand pick a better replacement, especially given I had already received a less than good blade. No worries though. The Pack Golok will work fine.
