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.

Just got mine in the mail today so I can't give a complete review. I will say that I am pleased with it so far without actually using it. The edge was not quite as sharp as I like it but five minutes on a leather strop and I now have a big bald spot on my left forearm. I also got rid of the clear coat that Condor uses so the blade can get a patina. That was another five minutes with a S.O.S. pad but I like a patina on my carbon steel blades. Like I said I can't give a full review without using it however, I own several other Condors and I have been very pleased with all of them. I have no doubt this one will perform just like the others. Oh and there's that awesome Condor leather sheath. It alone is worth the fifty some odd dollars I payed for the both of them.

Just Right
I use this knife in the woods when hiking. It is a great help clearing overgrown trails. It is light enough to carry all day and it's mass while holding or chopping has good balance. Its heft and weight are excellent. I seldom buy or make knives that do not require additional sharpening. I had this one sharp enough to shave in about 20 minutes on a typical 2X6X3/4 course/fine stone. I Then fine tuned the edge with a diamond/steel sharpener. Many effective knives are balanced 50/50 immediately behind the blade where the handle begins. It is so with my Condor Solobolo 8". It is a little smaller than the WW 1 Bolo U.S. troops carried in combat but shaped about the same. Its heft and mass centers ahead of the handle for effective chopping and the 1075 carbon steel blade with Rockwell 58 hardness holds an edge well. I have carried knives in the woods since 1960 when I bought a Solingen Original Bowie Monarch 174 with the stag handle that always came loose with use. This knife has a rock solid Micarta handle that will be there when you go home. All together for its size, weight and application, it is an excellent choice. Don't forget to put a strong raw hide or para cord loop in the handle for safety.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, Finish
it has problems
this blade is lighter then it looks. its well balanced. nice handle feels great. the blade was straight. the problem is the grind,its 3 different grind angles on this blade,the tip is blunt the part next to the choil is to steep and offset, the middle part is the only part you can sharpen. all condor blades have to much grinding on the left side and thr wrong angle on the right. witha hollow grind this is a bigger problem. this will be teh last condor ill ever buy,the edge is still not functional and i have already removed about 2-3 milimeters and will have to keep going. i have tried to stick with condor but im done after this,im really tired of regrinding blades for hours upon hours upon hours.
