Price Paid: $70


I used the BK 7 for one month in the mountains just south of Tehachapi, CA. It's rugged and holds its edge.


  • Rugged
  • Multiple uses
  • Fits onto belt easily
  • Holds its edge very well
  • Additional Velcro pocket for my Victorinox Huntsman.


  • I had to tighten the handle down after chopping a tree.

I've had the gear for two months, using it every day, all day, for a month. 

I ended up wrapping athletic tape around the handle for better grip when my hands were sweating.

I did have to tighten the allen bolt (there are three in the handle) after I chopped a tree (6" diameter) down.
