Condor Tool & Knife
The blade is made from German 1075 High Carbon Steel and are heat treated and annealed to about 56-58 Rockwell hardness. The edge is hand finished and polished to razor sharpness. The blade features a black traction powder coating. This is a non-reflective powder coating with a texture, designed for tactical use, rust and abrasion resistance. The Micarta handles enhance both the look and function while delivery indestructible phenolic performance. Includes a high quality, heavy duty, handcrafted leather sheath with a swiveling belt loop that allows the tool to swing out of the way while moving through brush or the jungle. The tool can also be swung out of the way while riding in a truck or car, thus not poking one in the side as a conventional knife sheath.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Finish
it has problems
this blade is lighter then it looks. its well balanced. nice handle feels great. the blade was straight. the problem is the grind,its 3 different grind angles on this blade,the tip is blunt the part next to the choil is to steep and offset, the middle part is the only part you can sharpen. all condor blades have to much grinding on the left side and thr wrong angle on the right. witha hollow grind this is a bigger problem. this will be teh last condor ill ever buy,the edge is still not functional and i have already removed about 2-3 milimeters and will have to keep going. i have tried to stick with condor but im done after this,im really tired of regrinding blades for hours upon hours upon hours.

Good bang for the buck
Overall very happy! Bought this as a beater for general camp chores but ended up being a general knife i carry on short hikes and camping trips! Blade size is good and chops great! The geometry isn't perfect but but steel is good quality! The handle is surprisingly comfortable! The added length makes chopping easy! Although my Busse Basic 9 is my favorite this is real close!

Perfect In-between
A 5" to 5 1/2" blade length is my favorite field knife length. Next are machetes 10" to 14". I have found the perfect in-between for me and this Joe Flowers design is it. Blade edge was nice symmetrical grind and was sharp enough from factory. Grip was just right for my medium hand. Balance is unusually well done for a Condor blade. There is no grip heavy or over-swing momentum with knife, just a little blade heavy feel as there should be. The sheath is a little tight but the fold should flatten out after applying Ballistol several times (yes, I mention it again). If you need an in-between knife yourself, give it a try.
