Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Solid knife, not great
Absolutely a solid knife. Stout and hefty. Good reach. I'm not saying this is a bad knife with my 3 stars, but it comes well short of being a favorite for me. My standard for comparison is the cold steel bowie machete, which is half the price (the i have an older model of that knife, not sure if it has changed and has a harder plastic handle now). Why I was disappointed:-uncomfortable handle. It's rock hard, slippery, and my hand quickly tires.-blade is bombproof, but doesn't seem to bite when I chop. I'm underwhelmed with its chopping effectiveness for being so hefty.-sheath is beautiful, leather, Condor standard, but man is it a tight fit to get the knife in and out.Condor looks to make a lot of excellent knives. I just found this one left me well short of my high expectations set by a similar knife that was much less expensive.
