i could really improve my knife game with this baby!
Will this knife fit in my carry-on luggage?

Yes, and you just walk right thru. Actually just pull it out and show it to the TSA agents. I just know they will be totally impressed.
The generic problem with all the knives in the Becker BK series is ... if you want them to be useful as anything other than a display piece, you have to shell-out another 40-60+ dollars for decent set of aftermarket grips. (unless you're handy with a Dremel or file, and can add some texture to the factory grips) This drop would have been perfect if they included a set of G10 handles for example. It ends up being a $160+ kukri by the time you're finished otherwise.

Do you recommend any G10 after market grips? Thanks!
"Both an EDC knife and a military weapon..."
Don't worry, work-mates, this massive Kukri is just for opening boxes and clamshell packages. The description said it was an EDC knife...

It's true... in Nepal.
Same price as Amazon with a lot more wait time

Well, the conversation is happening again, so I'm keeping up. 😀
That's no way to talk to a fellow M-dropper!
This is an odd looking kukri. The original kukri I've seen have all had the angle further from the handle. The purpose of that angle is provide a "hacking" portion of the cutting edge that is positioned to work with a flick of the wrist. The further that angle point from the wrist, the more power that can be generated - kind of like swinging a golf club. It is unclear how this configuration is supposed to work. Of course one could simply slash with the full swing of the arm, but I'm not sure that would be any more efficient than swinging a machete. Anybody have an explanation?

What's the smaller knife you carry in the 710?

kind of funny reading how people dont find it a good deal, when here in the UK the cheapest i could find it was nearly $200, and shipping was only $7 so that made it a good buy for me.... cheers Massdrop.
found this a dollar cheaper , with free shipping. No wait.
Makes a badass salad.
Really wanted to jump on this drop. Even at lowest price + shipping, it's not a great MD deal. I can pay $4 more and have it on my doorstep in 2 days. Bummer.

Branch clean up and dead tree removal so my ATV could get past. No rash :)

Well if you live or recreate in Oregon this will fit the bill. Blackberry vines on trails. Poison Oak and other hacking needed around the campsite. Been looking for a good USA made one.
I find it funny that this is in EVERYDAY carry
Shrimposaurus_Rex
Did I see this being used in "Silence of the Lamb"?
Shrimposaurus_Rex
They are probably referring to when you would need it for the zombie apocalypse. Thus everyday carry :-)
The drops haven't really deals lately, I hope that is something that MassDrop works to correct. (and what's up with all you people buying so many socks?)

ok, that's funny.
1095 cro-van steel is NOT stainless...it's carbon steel. It's 1095 (carbon steel) with small amounts of chrome, vanadium, nickel and moly.
Well, some people could EDC this. They probably don't live in the city, though.
I fail to see the deal. Why is it costing as much as on Amazon? Does it include any extras?
How come this drop is $20 more than when it dropped in March?
This drop isn't so great, the KA-BAR Kukri is made of stainless instead of proper steel for an implement of this length and purpose. The Condor Kukri Machete is a much better buy, and significantly less expensive as well. https://www.amazon.com/Condor-Knives-Machete-13-Inch-Carbon/dp/B004WMFOGC
TrentTheWanderer
Frankly Trent your mistaken. 1095 CV isnt regarded as stainless. Thats an error. Ask any knut. The Bk21 outclasses the condor in every way.
TrentTheWanderer
Despite the MD description, 1095CV is not a stainless steel. It is a carbon steel that Kabar has a lengthy experience with getting the heat treatment just right on their blades. It’s the primary steel Kabar has used since their start making US Military knives.
Boi how is a kukri "everyday carry"? LMAO
JohnMacK
You carry it and everyday you are stopped by the police?
Just wanted to say, for anyone thinking of purchasing this blade either from Massdrop, or Amazon, or direct from Ka-Bar......given the quality of the steel, and the sheer QUANTITY used, I think it's a great value at this price. My BK-21 (from the last Drop) arrived probably needing some sharpening, as I can see faint CNC-like marks down the entire edge, and I'm scratching my head trying to figure out how to hand-sharpen it with all its' exotic curves. I suppose I should stop looking at it and just dive in with the sharpening stones :p Except for the faint machining marks on the edge, my blade arrived in pristine condition. It is both beautiful and menacing, I don't think anyone could deny that!
Pahani
I've had one for a while. Mostly I use a ceramic rod to touch it up. Kabar Cro-Van comes back to a hair popping edge pretty readily. If I manage to put a nick in it, I've got a scythe stone that can accommodate the curve.
$128 on amazon with 2 day shipping.
So as announced here ....https://www.massdrop.com/talk/318/i-m-just-gonna-leave-this-here
....Is this the first fixed blade to ship international ....for the last year anyway?
Drop notes say say Us only ...but drop has int postage?
