The pricing here on Amazon is about as good as I have been able to find- I think I paid maybe a dollar or two less for mine from another website. Including shipping you should not spend more than $65 on this knife, which sets it even further apart as being an outstanding buy. If you do some research, you will quickly find that comparable knives go for at least $200.
Get the Bk2, you will not be disappointed.
Bottom Line: There is no such thing as the ultimate survival knife. If you mostly need to split wood, buy an axe. If you mostly need to skin game, carve wooden tools, build traps, slice veggies for camp dinner etc, buy a smaller, more maneuverable knife. If you need to egress a falling building after an earthquake or other unexpected disaster, carry around a wrecking/pry bar. If you mostly need to fight bad guys and zombies during the apocalypse get yourself a gun...
if you can't carry all of those tools around all the time, but hypothetically need to be able to perform those tasks in a pinch, the Ka-Bar BK2 is a good choice... except for fighting- the weight of the knife would be a huge disadvantage in live combat, unless you are fighting slow moving zombies or a sedated peter griffin from family guy...
That being said, this knife is solid; the feel inspires confidence and feels reliable. The blade angle facilitates a variety of uses, and the blade steel is of working class.
I was looking for a knife with a blade length of 4.75-6.25in. for EDC in a get home bag. The idea was to have a knife capable of a variety of urban/rural survival tasks in a pinch.
For survival bush craft, this knife is great for shelter-building. Some reviewers in survivalist forums complained that the length of the blade limited one to batoning smaller logs during shelter building...I don't know what kind of shelters they are building that would require one to process logs thicker than 5in. in diameter...if you have the time and energy to build yourself a LOG CABIN in a SURVIVAL situation then you probably also have a chainsaw... and a pet unicorn to cuddle with for moral support once your log cabin is built... for the rest of us who would need to budget our time and energy during such a situation, this knife is a good option.
The BK2 is great because it is good for many things, but it is not great at any ONE thing. ( read that again if you have to )
Its a fantastic buy for those who, for whatever reason, are confined to carrying one relatively small knife, in a get home bag, but are not too concerned about the added weight .
If you are planning on being in a given situation and your resources enable you, do yourself a favor and get a knife(s) designed with that specific function in mind.
All in all, this is Great knife! but is it great for you?
The coating on the BK series is durable and lasts a long time, proven with my BK7. Some people love the coating, some people don't. I personally would rather blue my knives so here's a little bit of a look at how thick and durable this coating is. I'm using aluminum oxide 80 grit to sand this down. It also comes off in about 3 minutes with a wire wheel and has a semi-polished look. I'll update when I get my bluing compound, handles, etc when I get it in Korea.
flat grind, the sheath is a great inproovement from the old one, it can be used either on the rightside or left. or you can purchase a tek lok and use it scout style. the weight is awesome....i can just hold the knife all day long. this weekend I am testing it. As a recommendation you should purchase a something to tighten the scales just in case they get loose.
the handle is made in a way that you can hold the knife way back for chopping and it still feels ecure in your hand. I have large hands and it feels very confortable.
crovan steel 1095, 2o degrees angle, flat grind although have seen videos of peole that have changed the profile to a convex grind.
came pretty sharp not razor but pretty charp nevertheless. cant wait to use the knife this weekend
