Now follows the conclusion, that whosoever shall think or find himself in his fight too weak for the agent's, or patient agent, and therefore, or by reason of his drunkenness, or unreasonable desperateness shall press within the half sword, or desperately run in of purpose to give hurt, or at least for taking of one hurt, to give another, shall most assuredly be in great danger of death or wounds, and the other shall still be safe and go free. - PARADOXES OF DEFENCE, George Silver, 1599
I'm not a fan of long grips on these tactical short swords. I would rather see a short gladius grip that locks in the hand and encourages leaving the second hand free for checking or holding a flashlight, etc. Even the CS gladius grip is too long. But it looks like a fun chopper.
Yeah, it won't do much that a CS machete won't, but after owning a few of those, the improvement in fit, finish, and naterials quality in a Condor that will cost maybe $150 retail seems worth it.
