It is a useful performer in a variety of combat and fieldcraft chores.

I bought this knife a few years ago after extensive reseach and found it to be the most compfortable knife that could handle any chore ! I have used this knife to baton countless logs, clear brush, and just all around camp chores. You won't regret buying this knife. It's the best in class blade for the price ! ENJOY !
Just got the bk9 and its an awesome knife! very durable and very reliable. I recommened this knife highly to anyone who does outdoor work, Its a hefty knife with a big swing.
I have owned many KaBar knives and this one is the best (the fixed blade warthog is a close second). It is well balanced, comfortable to use, and holds a wonderful edge. I like the thumb notches for precision cutting. I use it in the woods for cutting rope and camp tasks and I also use it at home to slice large cuts of meat and ribs. It is a very versatile knife and MADE IN THE USA. I am glad that Kabar and Ethan Becker have teamed up, this is a great knife for the money.
The BK9 is, if you could have only one knife! This is the one! Batoning wood, digging, chopping, skinning, feild craft , and prying! This thing is built like a tank! You won't go wrong, buying the BK9......................
Just bought this knife via chestnut ridge knife shops in penselvannia. I paid 75 dollars plus shipping and let me tell you: this knife is worth easily 2 or three times that much. By far the SHARPEST knife or any tool for that matter that i have ever encountered. This knife is absolutely gorgeous and the pictures online dont do justice to its size or beauty, It balances right in front of the hilt giving it stupendous swinging power and has an extremely ergonomically pleasing grip. Its heavy enough to provide excellent chopping power and still light enough to keep you from getting tired out during prolonged use. Eathan Becker is a pure genius. And with a partnership with such a reliable company as kabar he has created one of the best tools possible.Savage sharp. Amazing edge retention. Strong as an ox and excellent for prying. The full tang extends past the removable handle to create a very useful hammer/glass smasher butt. First thing i did when i got this home was to run out and chop down a 4 inch tree. And boy does it chop! hoping to do some more extensive testing this easter weekend so ill be sure to update my opinion on this knife but for now all i can say is this: get this knife. for the money-for any money- it is a steal and you will not regret it.
I think that this knife is an all around perfect tool. It looks awesome to begin with, secondly it has an amazing grip. This knife also is about the toughest blade i have ever encountered. This knife is deffinately worth 95 dollars, which is what i paid for it. If you are looking for a good knife this is the one you should buy withoiut a doubt.
Best knife i have ever owned and still going. i have many knives and was looking for an all around great knife for chopping batoning feild craft and durability. This knife was able to chop down a 6 inch tree with very little problems on my first day in the field with it and made easy work of anything wrist sized and lower. for heavy duty choping i did amazing for the wieght. after a full day of using this blade i took it home and was still able to shave not just cut but shave paper with it. this i my favorite knife and i own eathan beckers bk 2 and his Bk 4 (Machax) and i believe that it is the better of the three. in closing this is the best knife i own and has drawn me to be a regular KABAR customer.
When i got this knife it was in pretty good shape. The sheath is very well made despite its origin. The sheath seems very strong and there is a lot of ways to attach it to something. its a little bulky but what can you expect from a nine inch blade which looks amazing. My blade chipped a little but it was probably from hitting a knot in the wood i was chopping.
I have been researching this knife for about 6 months now. Watching videos and reading reviews written by pros. First off you must know I own probably 40 or 50 knives. I'm kind of a knife Nutt. Well I finally pulled the trigger and purchased the bad dog Bk9. I have never researched a knife so in depth as this one. I am very very satisfied with my purchase. I can sell every other knife I own. Lol because this knife fills all my needs. It is the one knife I feel fits the bill for all others. Not to big. Not to small. Great quality and perfectly designed. Cutting, chopping, heavy work and detailed work. It's the perfect knife. You must own this knife if you own any knives...I do not work for k Bar nor do I work for Becker. I am just a 46 year old man who loves the outdoors. Sincerely John Cammarota Grass Valley Ca.
Got mine and I can't imagine what situation I'd find myself in that this couldn't get me out of. It does it all. I do own other large knives but this is the one I carry when I'm out in the woods now.
Great knife, well balanced, feels good in my hand. This is one solid tool. Really glad I got it.
BK 9 survived my truck fire though the handle didn't. It still gets its job done. Need to buy me another handle and sheath though.
Great knife! I think it's a shame though, that the logo is no longer engraved into the blade. It's just printed on there now. Also, the top screw came loose after chopping a couple of branches the first time. After having tightened it, it seems to stay locked.
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.
