love it. razor sharp out of the box, others have said otherwise. scales are flush when adjusted. pummels strong, lot less heavy than a bk2, I'm backpacking and pounds equal pain. it's no hatchet but chops well for it's size.sheath is great molle compatible. compartment holds my leatherman or a magnesium fire-starter. made in usa! 'merica!!!
Was gifted this excellent knife as a gift from my fellow U.S. Army Soldiers. A quality knife with a design towards survival and bushcraft. The option of two sets (Black and Coyote Brown) of handle scales was an added bonus. Knife was sharp out of the box and the black grit coating on the blade seems durable and causes very little drag during cutting. The handle feels great in your hand but could have been a little thicker for my likes. I am looking forward to the Factory Micarta Scales that are soon to be released by KA-BAR. The blade is very well balanced and easy to manage and maintain. The sheath was such a quality durable Molle sheath that it eliminates any desire to purchase or craft an after market version. My only gripe was that the hex tool screws are an odd in-between size. They require a T-20 key tool to remove and adjust. Even then I slightly stripped the inside of one...and have no future replacement if condition worsens. :( I am a Soldier....and I trust KA-BAR with my life! I would recommend this knife for anyone. Thank you
This knife is absolutely perfect for a person like myself. The handle is comfortable, has perfect length and shape, the blade is the perfect length for the tasks that I perform (cutting packages, prepping tinder for fire, shelter construction), and I hope to use it soon for filleting fish and dressing game (pretty sure it'll be perfect). The thickness is perfect for any number of small to medium tasks. Do not expect this knife to perform large tasks such as splitting logs and such. It was not (in my opinion) designed for that, so make sure you are buying a knife designed to do what you need it to do. I keep this one in my car AT ALL TIMES as I know I can trust it to function when I need it. The sheath is great, made of durable material, attaches easily to MOLLE gear, and has a nice small pouch for either a small flashlight, whet stone, or flint. This will be a great investment for those who even do wood working as it is easy to handle and manipulate the blade.
The sheat is crap, the knife rattles in it. But that's the only downside! I made a kydex sheat for it and solved the problem. The knife itself is perfectly balanced and the thickness of the steel is a litlle less than the Esee knives wich is good when you want a multi-purpose knife and not only a wood chopper. The knife is compact but sufficient. A perfect companion for every trip... If this knife comes with a decent sheat i'll give it 5 stars instead of 4, no doubt!
A DAMN fine 4" blade! My ESEE 4 has been retired.The weight, thickness, and the handle are as perfect as that come. I added the Mircata scales, and stripped mine. Just a perfect all around camping, hiking day blade. The sheath, not so much. But the knife is a 5 out of 5!
Ethan Becker is a man after our own heart. An avid outdoorsman who enjoys martial arts and hunting, Becker founded Becker Knife and Tool Corporation in the early 1980's to design the industrial-strength tactical and survival knives he'd always wanted for himself. What we love about Becker, other than his innovative designs, is that he spends so much time in the outdoors testing new equipment and designs. KA-BAR is proud to be the manufacturer of Becker's five best-selling models - all introduced this year and brought up to date and approved by Becker himself.
