The BK11 is tremendous bang for your buck. You get a nicely coated blade and a decent sheath for a relatively low cost. The knife takes an edge easily and holds it for a fair amount of time, on par with any other 1095 steel I've had experience with, the edge does seem to be a bit more prone to rust however. Never had occasion to use the bottle opener, but from looking at it I see no reason why it wouldn't work just fine. And there's also a wire breaker if that would be of interest.
The handle is not the most comfortable of grips, even when wrapped with paracord. It is only long enough for a three finger grip, which in and of itself is not the bad part, but the finger grooves don't fit the hand very well. It's not terribly painful when held tight during hard work, but it is by no means comfortable.
The sheath is definitely usable but it was designed to be used with both the BK11 and another KaBar offering. This dual purpose leads the BK11 to not fit snugly into the sheath, there is some rattle when it is sheathed. There are no worries about the knife slipping out from typical carry, it's just an annoyance. The sheath is also a bit long/wide, it the grommets could have been placed a bit better to make the profile a bit more friendly.
Overall, the knife is a pretty good value for someone looking for a small fixed blade on a budget. I personally wouldn't think it'd be a comfortable concealed neck knife, but for open neck, belt or pocket it would be fine. For a little bit more money, there are some better offerings to choose from.
