Clay has been working on his own Kephart Knife for some time now, but he’s a full-time fishing guide with clients to teach and fish to catch. In fact, if you need the skinny on Smoky Mountains rivers, Clay is definitely your man. You can find Clay at Smoky Mountain Gillies, but if you’re looking for an affordable Kephart Knife of your own you’ll need to look elsewhere.
To El Salvador, where Condor Tool And Knife makes them by the crate. The Condor Kephart is a mid-sized bushcraft knife with a 4.5 inch blade made from 1075 carbon steel. The hardwood handle is riveted and epoxied, and the knife comes with a handsome leather sheath.
For $49, this looks like a straightforward rendition of a classic American woodsman’s knife pattern.
