Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Very good knife but needs a smaller companion knife
I bought this knife for bushcrafting and foraging and it does very well for that. The Stratos is comfortable in my hand and the long handle helps make the knife a good light chopper. The back of the blade near the handle is flat and square and provides a good place to strike a ferrocerium rod. The knife came sharp from Condor and holds a good edge. I think Mors Kochanski said that a good bushcraft knife is a prybar with a sharp edge and this knife comes very close to that description. The heavy blade and stout point can handle about anything one would use a knife this size for. The point is a bit of a problem for somethings because it isn't very acute. I carry a Cold Steel Finn Wolf with this knife and the two cover just about everything I need a knife for in the woods. The overall finish of the knife and sheath is very good, especially for the price and I prefer a wooden handle to the various artificial materials out there. The sheath is the usual heavy leather Condor sheath but carries the knife higher on my belt than I like. I added a leather thong to drop the sheath a couple inches and I also thread the thong through the lanyard hole in the knife handle when chopping. I think this is a very good design for a bushcraft/all around woods knife.

What else could be so nice for the price!?
I love this knife! It has heft without being heavy. And sharp! All I have to say is that I wasn't used to a knife this sharp, and I gave myself about 4 "paper cuts" from it during the first 2 days. :-) The price here at Knife Center is SOOOO excellent for the quality of the product. Now, the sheath it comes with is amazingly high quality too, but I am looking around for one that will also hold a sharpening stone and firesteel. I'm just a utilitarian kind of guy, that way....
