Been thinking about pulling the trigger on one of these for a little while now since they've gone on sale along with so many other great kabar models, including the bk15 I picked up for $45... Cheapest I found it was $65+shipping, so getting it here for $55 shipped is a great deal, despite the $10 shipping charge.
Has anyone had this shipped to Australia in previous drops and had any issues with customs? In particular for those in WA?

I own one though I didn't import it. It should be fine to import from what I understand.
Shipping kills it.

I'd say its because of the huge box Kabar always uses to package their stuff. It'd be cool if Massdrop would repackage these ....its not like most people have a use for the huge packaging.
Is there any issues shipping to india ?
If you plan to use it for batoning, you should know that the wage on this knife is sharp, unlike the Becker BK7, and could easily break the stick you use for the task. Would have loved to see the BK7 here, with some more reasonable shipping fee outside the states.
Got this knife in the last drop, It's pretty impressive for a factory made knife, came sharp, but could use honing if you like them razor. It's a shame that these drops don't offer the BK-Micarta handles as add ons, because that would be fantastic (I'm not a fan of the grivory). Sheath could use some improvement, but works, plenty of people who make kydex and leather sheaths for these things if you google it right.
KA-BAR BK5 Becker Magnum Camp Knife 8" Blade, good knife if you think the BK15 is small.
What knife will fit the front pocket in the stock sheath? I got the Remora as suggested by their website, but it doesn't fit snugly in the front. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Check out the bk11 (Becker Necker) plus a tdi clip, great EDC sized knife with a low profile.
I would love for this to go up again so I can have a knife between the short kabar and big brother.
Really nice blade but I really am not comfortable with the very smooth plastic handle and I dislike the nylon sheath. The handle definitely is slippery when dry and god only knows what it will be like wet. The only reason it doesn't slip out of your hand completely is the front and the rear of the handle is larger so your hand will hopefully stop it's slide there even with hard use. Also if it had a factory kydex sheath I'd be much happier. Sharp enough out of the box to shave with. Will try using it as my new general purpose galley knife but carefully until I see if the handle is safe and definitely with a different blade protector.

Its the shape of the grips that's important. The shape will retain the blade. Much more ergonomic than the slab grips on other brands like Ranger or esee. Ethan Becker also designed the grips to be smooth to eliminate hot spots during long use.
Try some of the wood grips as a upgrade...just as smooth but more waxy...and prettier...I'm certain a guy on eBay makes and sells them.
My knife has been on "Transport to Destination Country" in my country for 17 days now. I'd like to get it this century.

got mine today..what a beast it is...

Well my bk-15 just arrived a few hours ago...just in time to see/feel the quality that exudes from it and go ahead and commit to the big brother.....whew.... was sweating it (time wise)....
man I want this knife ..I am one of those that requested new drop...but still haven't received the KA-BAR Becker Short Trailing Point Knife bk-15 that I purchased couple weeks ago..was hoping it'd get here so I could check out quality etc....before commiting to this knife...but I do love the look...any one else own both ? do I want this or will the bk-15 cover all bases?
@kkt45 with both you will cover just about any task to be encountered while camping or hunting. To be honest I can and will make do with just the Magnum. At this price I don't see how you can resist. Also both knives combined cost less than the folder I carry with me every day.
Just note, this is a big knife.
Think of an 8" chef's knife you'd use in the kitchen and you'll get an idea.
If that seems too big for you, you'll want to look into the smaller Becker Ka-Bar trailing point knife.
Arrived today and very happy with it. It represents a good saving here in the UK and delivery was only 4 days!! Knife is shaving sharp from the box and fit and finish is good. Sheath is not the best Ive seen but it fits the knife well and will do its job.

$20.10 shipping to Australia. Guess I'll have to give up on this one.
This is a really nice Knife. They are being discontinued so there's a lot of places with low prices now. This price isn't bad, and if your a Becker addict it just may be a good enough excuse to pick up another or 3 lol. I've had this Knife for a while now and i love it. Stripped and rescaled, I wouldn't mind having another to keep stock. I'll be keeping my eye on this one. It's not just for food prep. It'll do much more and very surprisingly as it doesn't look like a chopper but it will hold its own. If your on the fence go ahead and pull the trigger, you won't regret it
Gonna spring for one of these. Wouldn't mind seeing the BK-4 Machax again on Massdrop, though.
Or the BK-16 or BK-10 crewman.
I got the BK-22 (BK-2 with upgraded sheath) here during the last drop. While I love it overall, it's a chunky beast of a knife. Indestructible with normal use, but hella heavy and not a lot of finesse. Which is why something like the BK-16 or BK-10 would be a great alternative choice to see here.
Or an even smaller EDC Becker blade, like the BK-24 D'Eskabar in D2 steel.
It would also be great to see a drop on the aftermarket Micarta scales for these knives. I have some of these and it makes a huge difference in how safe and secure the knife feels in your hand when using it, especially when wet, or when chopping or swinging the blade.
This Magnum looks interesting. Almost like a thick chef's knife in 1090 Cro Van steel. Probably will be good for food prep in camp, except that you'd have to maintain it much more rigorously than stainless steel.
K.T.N
Hey K.T.N, keep an eye out for the BK4 Machax in the next couple of weeks. We're planning on bringing it back.
Also, we have run the BK16 before. Hit that request button so you get notified if we are able to run another drop for it.
https://www.massdrop.com/buy/ka-bar-bk16
Thanks for the Micarta handle suggestion, we're working with the vendor to be able to offer these as an add-on option at check-out on future drops.
The savings are about $5 when shipping (US) is taken into account. Not that great of a deal. It's a good knife though.
I own this knife ....but with custom kydex and beautiful wood scales..........its a BEAST......large AND fast and that Persian profile.......
+ $20.10 to me in the UK any idea of how much more shipping would be if i bought 2 ?
Looks like a great knife, but +$20.10 shipping is like half the price. Also I probably have to pay customs on top of that.
