KABK7: Becker Combat Utility Knife
KA-BAR

In an effort to bring an affordable, high performance, combat/utility knife to our troops, Ethan Becker consulted with fellow tactical trainers, and also, veteran and active duty infantrymen around the country. They all said that troops need multipurpose knife that is capable of cutting, light chopping, prying, and hammering....all in a lightweight package. The operators also said that the sheath has to be easy to use in conjunction with web gear, and durable. After much prototyping and testing, we bring you the offering from BK&T, a knife designed with today's high speed soldier [and a Grunt's budget] in mind...The BK&T Combat/Utility 7.

Who's that girl?......its Jess
Get some muscle memory with this blade and after a while you will get it to do almost anything you want, short of washing the dishes (I did ask it.....but it just stared at me, so ended up washing them myself) A professional level survival knife that will not break the bank,

Jack-of-all-trades
It feels surprisingly light in the hand given its length and thick blade, and yet despite that, it still feels remarkably study. The length is just about right for most tasks - its not too long for smaller tasks like preparing food, and not too short for larger tasks such as chopping. Overall, it makes a fine jack-of-all-trades, and although there are better knives to do specific tasks, if you only want to carry or own one knife, this is a great option. Note that the sheath that comes with it is, contrary to what some have mentioned, of a pretty decent quality. The blade does rattle just a bit in the sheath, but its not that big a problem. Also, there are easy fixes for this - a quick search returns many different options.

Awesome knife... Looks good, performs even better!!
After weeks of research, I decided that the Becker BK7 was going to be the next addition to my collection. It is a combination of awesome design, high quality steel and sensible price - yet has a great reputation for taking a battering and surviving intact! Check out the Youtube tests and reviews. The new textured black blade coating looks and feels the business but I haven't had it long enough yet to comment on its durability. On the down side... The Grivory handle scales, while an excellent shape, have very little grip and a wet knife could easily slip from your hand. A bit of grip tape from the sporting goods store fixed that. Also, when removing the knife from the sheath, one half of the retaining strap could easily be lopped off by the razor sharp edge of the blade as it tends to get in the way. I'll probably get round to making a custom leather sheath anyway. There is an extra sheath portion on the front which will accept the Becker Remora mini knife, but unfortunately this was not supplied at the price I paid. Overall, very very happy with my purchase, but don't take my word for it. Go buy a BK7 and see for yourself - at that price, can you afford not to?? Many thanks to the Knife Centre for their outstanding customer service and professional delivery service to international customers.
