I don't know about the other reviews, but I basically got a perfect hand made knife for $60. Did the other guys know about their satisfaction warranty?

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Great strong working knife
Great knife strong takes a silly sharp edge, love the knfe feels great in the hand with little to no fatigue.... The sheath is poor you will need to take a heat gun to the back side of the sheath so it will quit cutting into the shealth and dulling the edge up

I like Condor Knives & KnifeCenter, but I got a dud!
I want to focus on all of the good things about this knife, but I'm disappointed in the shaping of the handle.. (not the design/shape of the handle) The craftsmanship of 'grinding' or shaping is difficult, I know, but this one's very asymmetrical. I'd like to upload photos so you can see what I mean. It looks like one side of the knife handle got 'bit' by the belt sander and removed a 45 degree swedge on one side, and the spot on the handle near the thumb ramp is also shaved off in a flat way that looks like an accident. Maybe I was expecting better quality from Condor, and it's just me, but this product shouldn't have passed quality-control in my opinion. I'm sad to say that I will return this knife.. Now, on a positive note: If these 'defects' weren't there, this knife would be one of my favorites. Joe Flowers has a hit here. The balance is perfect, 5.5" blade, 5mm spine, full-flat grind to the scandi bevel is the BEST !! I like the handle material, and the steel.
