Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
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.
