Pros: Materials, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
A hidden gem.
I bought this knife literally on a whim. I wanted a fixed blade that was fairly meaty, and this one (at the time of writing this review) is the thumbnail picture to Condor's camp knives section. I was extremely surprised at how cheap it was. When it arrived I was extremely impressed (this is my first Condor purchase). This thing is just massive, images don't do it justice. The finish is stellar and very gritty (usually I collect tactical so this was a raw change) and when I felt the edge I gotta admit it didn't feel that sharp. I lightly ran it through the Work Sharp 6,000 grit belts and it became one of the sharpest things I've ever touched.Obviously a shaving sharp nice is fine, but in the field it's about power if you're gonna chop with it and you should have no problem relying on that. It is much heavier then it looks, but that's perfect for this utility.So, stop reading the reviews if you're looking for a thick hulk of steal for a great price, you've found it already.
