Bang for the buck
Had the opportunity to take this knife out to the Blue Mountains of NSW Australia recently. When it came to batonning, feather sticking, hacking it performed greatly. This is a tough knife suited for tough jobs.

Just bought the knife, knife itself is solid and reliable. The sheath however is bad and way to light. This caliber of knife deserves much better. Pictures do not tell you this. If you want a great knife buy it, but you will need to make other arrangement's to hold it.

Excellent knife. too heavy, pathetic sheath
I ordered this knife to take along on my camping trips and I am very satisfied with my choice. It's basically a sharpened pry bar. You can put it to hard use and it will not let you down. The only negative points are 1) It is too heavy for a survival knife 2) The sheath is pathetic. Such an excellent knife deserves a better sheath.

Beefy and Solid
This is a great knife. If you are out camping or simply banging out in the sticks you want this on you. Pound for pound the best utility blade your gonna find. If you want to take it to the next level find the micarta handle and customize the sheath. No gimmicks...No baloney...This Becker is all business.

One tough knife
HEAVY DUTY knife at a great price. Great camping knife. Sheath protects the knife well but difficult to remove the knife.

This Thing Is Great!
This thing does everything I need a camping knife to do. It cuts the wood for the fire and then cuts the carrots and potatoes for the stew that gets cooked over that fire. Of the few knives that I have, this is the best all around tool. You can't go wrong with this one. I had to work on the sheath a little to make it work the way I wanted. But that was a minor thing. Overall, great!!

This thing rocks and if you do not own one get it!!!
This is a batoning blade. It will blast through dead wood branches (no more than 4 inches) with ease with help from some wd-40. It will take a serious beating and still be able to make a fuzz stick. It is not a fine carver but all around this thing rocks. The handle needs to be wrapped in 550 cord however because those handles get slick when you are sweatin and blastin wood; or get the micarta scales. The sheath is ok; my girlfriend cord wrapped it with 550 and it retains alot better. This is like the mustang cobra of outdoor blades; even if i am a camaro guy:)

Good Company for a BKT7
The knife is excellent without a doubt, but is a poor match for the sheath provided with it. You may split with ease any wood, trench, cut, and do whatever you like; but unless you tether the knife to your thigh you will struggle to gain access to its' utility. Over time, the sheath will wear in, but by that time, most probably you will have given up. Too bad someone silly was given the task of fitting a sheath to this excellent knife!! THIS IS HOW YOU FIX IT: Wrap the upper part of the blade with two(2) layers of duct tape, boil a large pot of water, insert the sheath AFTER HAVING TURNED OFF THE GAS, insert the sheath into the pot of hot water for approx 3 minutes, take out insert the knife into the sheath, and let cool COMPLETELY. This will loosen the graps the sheath has on the knife and make life easier, but not perfect. A rattle shall you have. Sorry.... Your Mother never promised you a rose garden!!!

awesome knife
This knife can break through just about anything and everything in its way. But for purposes when you will truelly need this knife on you, its just plainly to heavy. For around the house chopping it works better than a axe, but for batonging in the woods when camping, other knifes can accomplish the same task with half the weight. So if you are looking to buy this knife for survival purposes i would recomend a lighter knife. Besides that the handles are crazy comfortable and the length is perfect.

Classic
Great heft, beautiful to look at and hold.. this knife is a solid choice and a classic. I received a great, sturdy reinforced nylon sheath with this but drawing the knife out of it is extremely difficult due to an overexuberant locking mechanism.

Heavey Knife, Clumsy Sheath
The Knife: USA Made, Great fit and finish. Other reviewers like this knife for it's heft. I find it too heavy for it's size. Like using a 28 oz framing hammer when a 20 will do just fine. The Sheath: Clumsy to operate. 2 handed deploy is required and if the handle isn't buttoned in when placed back in the sheath, the knife goes sideways and upside down at your side. I thought about getting a custom sheath but decided to return it and buy a Benchmade Lone Wolf 40031 Mountainside Drop Point....a different size and type of knife but it looks like it will fit my needs better.

Awesome Camping knife
The quality of this knife for the price was excellent. It meets all the criteria of a great camping knife, for batoning wood, chopping (when an axe isn't feasible) and whatever else you can think of. I would recommend a smaller knife to accompany this one if you're planning to whittle though. The sheath works (a little tight), but better than loose. I will probably make a leather one for it since that is my preferred material.

Great Heavy Duty Knife
Great knife. Super heavy duty 1/4 inch thick blade. Hold a nice edge. I liked one my buddy has so I bought one for myself. Unlike his, my late model sheath is a little too good at retention. It's somewhat tough to get the knife out. The handle is well made but a little slick. I forsee it being slippery in the rain or with deer blood. Overall I'm very happy with the quality!

A cro-bar with an edge
I have the first gen. and have had it for about three years. I love this knife. I wish my work knives were as beefy as this. This thing is flat out bad-ass! If you were to throw it at someone and not hit them with the point, you will knock them the @#$% out with the weight. I am not crazy about the slippery handles. I cut meat for a living and a slippery handle is bad. Rapping para-cord is not the solution to this problem, the knife becomes very thick with 550. Perhaps wrapping the handle in the same tape that one would use to wrap a tennis racket would work. I have not tried this yet, but have seen someone wrap their Cold Steel Trench Hawk with it. If I acquire some, I will wrap both the hawk, as well as the knife.

BEAST!
This thing is built like a TANK. Exellent survival/camp knife, and the 2nd generation sheath (kydex-like glass filled Nylon) was both a pleasant surprise and a more secure fit. Came adaquately sharp out of the box, and the now exposed pummel makes for an effective less-than-leathal impact feature. All in all just BEASTLY!

COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!
There is nothing more that can be said about this excellent edged tool. I don't think you will find any other knife with so many positive reviews. This knife is perfect for its intended use,a tank like utility/survival/camping tool. You could spend more if you like, but you're not going to get more knife than this, especially for the money. There are sooo many quality blade choices out there, Busse,Fallkniven,Bark River etc. but these all come with a serious price tag. I've heard this called the Busse Lite, so go ahead, spend 5 or even 10 times more, all you'll be getting is the name. The only pick t
