Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
I purchased this knife for camping and survival purposes. I was really surprized when I opened the box. The knife was truly gorgeous, it was mirror finished and scalpel sharp right out of the box. My friend and I went for a hike just to test our new Condor knives. I've never been so impressed with a blade in my life!! We put them through the wringer, I baton cut cross grain, a seasoned maple limb about 5" thick, split some kindling, made a furry stick to start a fire, and did some carving. when I was finished with all of that, it was still razor sharp. That's saying something! I can't figure out why someone would spend hundreds of dollars on any knife, just because of it's name brand, when it won't last as long as a 20. something dollar knife. I've been in the military (USMC) Vietnam, and I'd trust this bush lore Condor just as much as I do my original kabar, with my life. 1 more thing, this is the ONLY knife I've ever purchased that I didn't have to sharpen.

Better than Expected
I bought the Bushlore along with Condor's Kephart knife because I liked both designs. I was pleasently suprised with the Bushlore. As others have said, the sheath is very good, and the fit and finish were better than I expected. The grind on the blade was even side to side and along the length of the blade. While it was not quite as sharp out-of-the-box as I like, it did not take long at all to get the edge where I like it. The handle material was a generic brown but not unattractive. The lanyard hole is a real plus. The contoured handle provides a comfortable grip. The scales were carefully fitted to the knife with no obvious high spots. Using the knife is confortable and it balances well. I never handled earlier versions of this knife, so I cannot compare the current knife with previous iterations. However, the fit and finish on this knife were very good. So, whatever issues people previously had with this knife, Condor seems to have addressed them.

Best Buy This Year
This is a No BS knife. In my experience anything that has Survival stamped on it is total crap. If you want a reliable and hearty bang for your buck, you can't go wrong with the Condor. I rate this slightly above the Mora due to its thickness. Note: The wood handle although traditional, is slippery.
