BK 21 a must have khukuri for all

The BK 21 does it all from clearing camp site to camp blade. Forward weight gives good power and flow thru. Edge came extra sharp and maintained itself clearing grapevines and green briars. It is extremely well made and affordable and should be in every BOB as it is also more then a tool. Just ask the Gurka!!!

Bad To The Bone

Sharper and much tougher than I imagined. It has a forward weight distribution making it a most venerable chopper and trailblazer. I'm going to change the scales to G10. The scales are sold by Ka-Bar for $55.00, plus 8 bucks shipping. The blade shape, sharpness, forward thrust and recovery is outstanding. This is a pleasure in the field. It's great against our rouge pitbull and coydogs. I'm offering a 5 but should deduct a star for the slippery factory handle. However, I can't see deducting 20% of the score. This is a REAL professional tool. Use it wisely. I made short order of a foot thick log in a snowstorm today.

Fun Chopper

Beautiful new toy for the collection! Lots of forward weight that makes chopping and splitting nice. Sharp enough to use the heal of the blade for feathering. This is a unique and well designed tool in my opinion!

Excellent Kukri!

This is one of the best Kukri style knives I have ever used! This was a must have for me, being a Becker Fanatic. The three star reviews for this don't even make sense, so don't let them stop you from buying this amazing kukri. As with all Beckers, I replaced the grips with micarta. No big deal. The sheath is not great, but it will get the job done for most people. Thanks Ethan, Hank, and KA-BAR!

Not all its cut out to be!

Although the BK21 isnot a bad chopper, its not anything like the craz and hype everyones boosting about online. Got mine in the mail yesterday and took it out to the woods today (fatherdays) put it up against the Kershaw camp 10, ontario kukri (my favorite for the last year, though with my own grind on the blade) the cold steel sk5 kukri, ka-bar parangatang and the kershaw camp 18. If you want a real chopper, try the paramgatang and also for the cost, give the camp 10 a swing, you wont regret it. The kershaw camp 10 now rides on my hip, and the parangatang will be riding on my backpack after i get done making a kydex sheath for it, coz the sheath it comes with SUCKS BIG TIME! And so does the sheath that comes with the BK21... Good luck in your search for the holy grail of a woodmans blade, like myself, the searxh goes on, but for now my new companions are the kershaw camp 10 amd tje ka-bar parangatang

Awkward

Tip heavy with poor balance Small slippery grip Basic nylon sheath with marginal belt loop Ka-Bar sells a better sheath ($60) and less slippery grip ($40). I’m surprised that they don’t offer sized grips since they’re bolt-on. I wouldn’t buy it again.
