Sometimes you just need a big honkin’ knife to get the job done. Enter the Badass Knife of the Week.

The KA-BAR BK7 Combat Utility Knife is billed as the ultimate, all-purpose fixed blade designed specifically for soldiers and hard-core adventurers. It does not disappoint.

When we say the knife is huge, we’re not joking. The BK7 comes in at a total length of 12.75 inches. The 7-inch clip point blade is made from 1095 Cro-Van steel, an alloy that’s easy to sharpen and takes tons of abuse. Black coating also helps the high carbon steel better stand up to the elements.

The blade has a few more things going in its favor. A swedge along the spine near the tip helps give the knife even more penetrative power. Jimping, a sharpening choil, and a flat grind are all little things often ignored on larger knives.

Enclosing the skeletonized full tang are two removable Ultramid handle scales. Ultramid is the brand name for a type of nylon thermoplastic that’s lightweight, comfortable to hold, and durable.

KA-BAR and Becker make carrying this knife less of a chore by including a MOLLE compatible heavy-duty polyester sheath that can also fit a smaller Becker BK13 Remora for less demanding tasks.

Because this is a collaboration with Becker Tool & Knife, the BK7 carries a dependability and workmanship you can bet your life on. If you need something that won’t let you down in high-stress situations, it’s hard to beat this heavy-duty USA-made fixed blade.
