Fantastic in the forest and the kitchen
I have a few of the Condor knives, and I really love this one. The grind and handles are really well crafted and with just a bit of honing the knife has become super sharp. I have used it in the kitchen for general prep, filleting a pike on a recent trip, and whittling a walking staff -- the handle was very comfortable, the blade shape great for a variety of chores. All in all I love this knife.

Cons: None
small but capable
this knife is smaller than most others with a wooden handle in the condor range, but is extremely capable and strong nevertheless. easy to sharpen, comfy to handle, only 20g heavier than the bushlore mini, can do all the bushcrafty stuff, camping chores, food preparation, carving/whittling etc. to protect the nice wooden handle i wouldn't baton w/ it, but it's certainly possible. the sheath is of the same sturdy quality as other condor sheats, shaped a bit differently compared to what comes with the nessmuk/bushlore knives. one can't go wrong at this price and this knife can last a lifetime if not abused all the time.

tremendous bargain
A wonderful utility knife, with a handle that fits my size large hands well and an excellent sheath. The blade is sharp, though I need to touch it up a bit and hone it. This thing will wear forever, no need to worry about beating it up as one might with a $100 knife. Beats anything I have seen in the price range by a country mile. Just need to keep the blade oiled.

A useful little knife
Like most other writers I found this knife needing a little love out of box but after a touch or two on the grinder and a fair amount of stone work it was razor sharp. It's diminutive size was great from a weight perspective and held up well during camp chores and stayed sharp. However, I found it a little small for my hand(to add perspective I fill out a large size glove typically). All in all a good knife.

Mora is much better, hands down
I have made and collected knives for decades. This knife required major blade reprofiling. The rivets protruded had to be ground flat to the handle. The handle required roughening to ensure safety. The sheath was good, but so what. If this knife is representative of Condor products, Knifecenter should discontinue the line. It took two weeks to get here.

Ugh!!!!!
I truly believe that Condor knives should be sold in kit form. You wind up doing so much refinishing on their product, you should receive a rebate. This knife had literally no bevel out of the box. I had to profile the knife. Then light sanding of the hardwood handles so I could use the knife with some comfort. I must have read a hundred reviews and forum posts where purchasers had to do something to just get the knife straight! My first and last Condor.

I was looking for a capable little bushcrafter knife that I wouldn't feel too bad about scuffing up and using for camp chores. Although I would normally prefer 1095 or O1 steel, the 1075 steel this little guy is made of seems to hold up pretty well. I also like that the tang has no weight-saving cuts in it that (almost always in my experience) lead to stress-point related problems, like bending or breaking. It's one solid piece of steel, no skeletonized tang here. As I expected, the blade came factory-sharp, which wasn't a problem to fix-up on my end. I've seen a lot of complaints on here that the blade doesn't come razor sharp and that the handle feels unfinished. Both of these issues I remedied in under 20 minutes with an Arkansas sharpening stone, some 220 grit sandpaper, and a light coat of mineral oil. Come on guys, don't be afraid to get your hands a little dirty. This one's worth it. Besides, you'll love the deep red color that the mineral oil brings out in the wood handle. Provided you take care of it, this knife should last multiple lifetimes. It holds an edge about the same, maybe slightly better, than my Mora Bushcraft Black and feels more solid to use. The included leather sheath is nice, but may need to be replaced eventually with a Kydex one that has a drain hole. But let's be honest, the sheath is an extra. You're spending your money on the knife, not the sheath. Definitely worth the money and a worthy companion on the trail. This knife just replaced my Mora
