Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great knife for that price. Fine Micarta handle, fits well in medium to large hands, secure grip with and without gloves. The sheath could be better but is ok for the money, first the knife did not fit in the plastic insert so I had to squeeze it a little, now it fits perfectly. Knife out of the box very sharp, after stropping it on a leather paddle it came to razor sharpness. The 3.75" false edge came pre-sharpened (convex), it took about 5 minutes and some white sharpening compound (Bark River) on the leather paddle to solve this problem. Great knife for multiple tasks....

Cons: Finish, Sheath/Scabbard
Could have been a 5
I really like this Condor Moonstalker knife. It could have been a 5 with decent sheath instead of the nylon junk that didn't fit until I modified it and tore on the second day. I'm not crazy about the coating either. It started wearing off on the first use of the knife. The good: It came sharp enough to slice sheet paper and with only stropping it became hair popping sharp.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
So far so good
I wanted something smaller than my Condor Bolo but larger and more capable of heavier tasks than my Boker Vox. I chose this over the solo bolo due to availability .I wasn't sure what I would be getting since Condor QC is hit and miss .In this case the knife was done right good clean grinds and plenty sharp for a light chopper .So far it does not disappoint .In a backyard trial I chopped through a 3/4 in +or - several times with 1 swat and split several pieces of another branch approx 3 in in dia. with no loss of edge . The sheath is lousy and I hate the finish. but still not a deal breaker since I can make a decent leather sheath the way I want it and remove the horrible coating on the blade
