Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Had it for a few years now, bought a second one of this model, and a tan handle version. To let all who love this knife but dislike the sheath. The TOPS bushcrafter sheath works perfectly. I read a review where the condor runs circles around this knife.....not a chance in my use. Now their personal preference might be for the condor, sure, cool, but better then this in every conceivable way? That is just not true for me. I have a very large collection (well over 300 and 60% or more are premium blades, folders and fixed) and use my knives daily, carry 2 to 3 daily, 1-2 folders and a fixed blade, (today have a CS master hunter on my hip, in the original BM bushcrafter sheath) my advice is to handle one in person before buying as the handle is odd at first, my glove size is a 9, bigger hand will be as good or better imo. Ignore the negatives until you handle one yourself. BM did a great job on heat treat and temper, takes and holds a great edge and no chipping so far.
