The KA-BAR short brown leather sheath fits most 5.25 inch blade knives with double guard. It is stamped with the USMC stamp.
Combining Becker's trademark ergonomic handle design with a traditionally profiled American bowie-style blade, the Ka-Bar Combat Bowie knife is ideal for a variety of combat and field-craft chores. The blade is made of 1095 Cro-Van steel, an easy-to-sharpen carbon steel that keeps its edge well. The Swiss-made Grivory handle, meanwhile, is constructed of a glass-fiber-filled nylon for added strength. Other features include a flat grind, a Ka-Bar Becker stamp, and a 20-degree edge angle.

The BK-9 comes with a nylon sheath that is more than adequate, and makes more sense for a knife of this size than the hard plastic used on the sheath for the BK-2. There is a compartment in the sheath for a smaller knife, and I carry a Ka-Bar BK-13 in mine. In all, I rated this knife four stars because while it is not everything that I expected, it is a darn good knife and will stay in my collection of knives that I use. If you want a similar length and quality knife with the 6.5mm blade width, I would suggest the Ka-Bar 5600 Johnson Adventure Potbelly knife which also comes with the smaller knife included with the sheath.
My mom...and a recent storm provided an excellent opportunity to put the BK9 to work earlier this week. We had a band of storms cross into North Carolina recently and my mom called and said that there were some trees down in her yard. Usually, it wouldn't be very exciting anticipating all the work that probably needed to be done but I was actually kind of exciting to travel back home and assist...with my new toys of course. So, I loaded up a bag full of knives that I've been eager to test off I went.
One of the most surprising things about the BK9 that I noticed upon receiving it was how light it was. I was expecting it to be a heavier feeling knife and while it may feel heavy for some...it felt lighter than anticipated. It's a big piece of full tang steel that looks like a beast and constructed like one as well...no doubt. The handle was surprisingly comfortable as well. I really like the look and feel of micarta handles found on other knives and didn't really know what to expect with the BK9's Kraton one. I felt that the handle was very comfortable and I didn't really have a problem with the knife slipping out of my hand while using it. The blade was very sharp right out of the box and while I prefer a kydex sheath, the nylon sheath for the BK9 appears nicely constructed and practical enough for this knife. I did notice that the sheath still has the compartment for the once included BK 13 Romara however. You won't find that particular knife included with the BK9 anymore. Some years ago they did include that knife with the BK9 but that was when the BK13 was made in Taiwan (I think) and now it is made in the USA. You'll have to purchase the American made BK13 if you want to make use of that additional sheathing compartment. It does have an accessory compartment on the sheath as well.
The knife itself did an awesome job with chopping up those tree branches in my mom's yard. I hacked through some pretty thick stuff and the Becker had no problem with processing limbs from Maple, Pine, Pear, and Black Walnut trees. I was actually having so much fun just chopping stuff up that I gave myself more work to do. Typically, I would just break the branches down enough to easily tie a rope around them and drag them off into the woods with my four wheeler...but I ended up chopping up everything into smaller pieces that I needed a wheel barrel more than a four wheeler. Keep in mind that everything that I was chopping up was still green as well. That pretty black coating on the BK9 was gummed up by the time I was through. That coating is meant to protect the carbon steel from rusting but it also collects a lot of material as you are chopping. It kinda embeds itself into the coating and I was thinking that I'd never be able to clean out all of that stuff out. I ended up using Ballistol on the blade and after a few minutes of some scrubbing with a rag...the blade looked as good as new. The blade retained it's sharpness throughout the day and it is still razor sharp after a full afternoon of chopping. Another thing that I really like about this knife is it's ability to be handled for carving applications as well. I would take some smaller branches and widdle them into spears with this knife with ease. For as big as it is...it's light weight and handling make it quite the carver. I think my wife and mom were tired of hearing me yell across the yard, "Hey come here and see this" all that afternoon...but boy did I have fun. It's a joy working with a tool and marveling at it's design, engineering and functionality. It's also great to have a tool that will be very helpful in my camping/hiking adventures and one that could prove to be quite the asset in a survival situation should the need arise. Overall, I'm very pleased with the performance of the one I received and highly recommend this knife.
- The knife arrived sharpened with an excellent edge. I haven't measured the angle but would estimate it at their normal specification (20 degrees per side). I was able to immediately put this knife to use out-of-the-box. My first test was to slice through heavy cardboard boxes-- it went through them like butter, and better than any razor knife I have ever used.
- It is very well-balanced: This thing feels so good in your hand... just like a quality knife should. It is not overly heavy but you can easily adjust how the weight falls by adjusting the angle/grasp of your hand.
- The included sheath is high-quality. The knife is held securely with no rattling. It has molle-style attachments all along the back and has other integrated lashing holes. The belt loop is held by strong Velcro and has a pull-tab for easy adjustment-- this lets you don and doff this thing without changing your belt.
I haven't been this happy with a purchase in a good while. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
