Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Finish, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Great multi purpose woods knife.
For the price, this is perhaps one of the best full tang, high carbon steel big knives (for those who prefer that) one can buy for wilderness use. It is heavy enough to use for light chopping, and the shape of the handle makes a lot of different grips possible. The blade itself is like a hybrid flat grind with a scandi-grind at the end, which should make sharpening a breeze. It also has a guide notch for those who use more advanced sharpening toolsThe sheath is of typical condor quality, with thick leather and solid stitching, and also includes a swing swivel that should make the knife easier to keep in the belt when sitting down. Only negative I have found with the knife so far, is that it has (in typical Condor fashion) some kind of clear lacquer on the blade. While I understand that this is done in order to protect the carbon steel blade against rust, it doesn't take much use before it starts to look real ugly, so I generally remove this layer with standard paint remover whenever I recieve a condor product.
