Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Finish, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Wishing really hard for zombies!
Straight out of the box....the box died, then went to work on 2 sheets of 3/4 inch 4'/8' plywood.....plywood died had too rake up the remains, lost some the coating but the blade was just like out of box, could of sliced a tomato but didn't have one....finger started to drip Ragu though wonder how that happened. Overall i feel like a viking on xmas morning, those German trained el salvadorians weaponsmiths are making condor a name not to be messed with. 5mm of 1075 hardened 50 to 55 Rc, similar to cold steel standards nothing is perfect but good basic materials(for hopefull zombie slaying) but 1/3 of the price if you can find it instock! First clue to its greatness!!!!! P.S. scabbard has adjustable paralike cord for hanging off belt

Condor Rocks!
Great finish, takes an amazing edge, and solid! Another great quality Condor sheath of thick leather, I just got a Cold Steel Two Handed machete sheath to fit it all into and have a cross body sling, although it will mainly be strapped to a pack. A bit more heft, but that is what I wanted-not making a Kill Bill sequel here!

Cons: None
Better than expected
For a "Japanese" (Asian) style sword this is the best deal around IMHO. The blade was reviewed by others as having a hollow grind and being 1.5" wide all the way to the tip...this has CHANGED. The width of the blade near the tip is less than one inch....the blade by the "hibaki" ( brass reinforcement by the guard) is a tad under 1.5" This blade is similar in width to a late "Edo period" sword and on the narrow side for that....or about right for a well used Gunto / Wakizashi It is FAST and well balanced for ME....blade cuts free standing sisal twine with no work on it yet, but it will get some sharpening on the water stone, as it needs it a bit. Comes with a CONVEX factory edge...1070/1075 used for the blade ( when properly heat treated) is better than most Chinese ( "samurai") swords in production today for the money. You could spend about 200 more and get a "Ronin" sword ( an SBG special) but they are only slightly longer and have maybe a 1/4" more width at the area before the tip.
