Was looking for a good all-around outdoors knife. Wanted full tang and good steel. After researching online, the BK family of knives, now owned by Kabar, seemed universally well regarded. I ordered the BK7 as I prefer 5 to 7" blade lengths in a multi-purpose knife.
The knife has done everything I've asked of it. From fuzz sticks to chopping wood for fire, it has done all well. The steel takes a good edge and holds it. The blade is coated, which protects the steel from rust. The handle is not uncomfortable, but I have held better. Handle material is slick, but I haven't had a problem with it.
This is a large knife, with a heavy blade, so it will not be the best knife for some tasks. But I have found that it works well for most tasks.
