Condor Tool & Knife
 
The blade is made from German 1075 High Carbon Steel and are heat treated and annealed to about 56-58 Rockwell hardness. The edge is hand finished and polished to razor sharpness. The blade features a black traction powder coating. This is a non-reflective powder coating with a texture, designed for tactical use, rust and abrasion resistance. The Micarta handles enhance both the look and function while delivery indestructible phenolic performance. Includes a high quality, heavy duty, handcrafted leather sheath with a swiveling belt loop that allows the tool to swing out of the way while moving through brush or the jungle. The tool can also be swung out of the way while riding in a truck or car, thus not poking one in the side as a conventional knife sheath.

Good bang for the buck
Overall very happy! Bought this as a beater for general camp chores but ended up being a general knife i carry on short hikes and camping trips! Blade size is good and chops great! The geometry isn't perfect but but steel is good quality! The handle is surprisingly comfortable! The added length makes chopping easy! Although my Busse Basic 9 is my favorite this is real close!

Perfect In-between
A 5" to 5 1/2" blade length is my favorite field knife length. Next are machetes 10" to 14". I have found the perfect in-between for me and this Joe Flowers design is it. Blade edge was nice symmetrical grind and was sharp enough from factory. Grip was just right for my medium hand. Balance is unusually well done for a Condor blade. There is no grip heavy or over-swing momentum with knife, just a little blade heavy feel as there should be. The sheath is a little tight but the fold should flatten out after applying Ballistol several times (yes, I mention it again). If you need an in-between knife yourself, give it a try.
