The knife isn’t a light one, but for camping or any other place you may need to chop wood, this knife will blow the competition out of the water. The BK22 is definitely more for brute jobs like chopping wood, cutting thick plastic or anything you could use with a hatchet.

Sheath

The Ka-Bar Becker BK22 sheath is well made and an improvement over the original BK2 sheath. It has better clips to secure your knife. It also has a nice Velcro belt strap and compartment.
