Customer Reviews of “Gurkha BKXL Tactical Field Knife”
So, just got this in the mail today as a birthday gift from my parents. I'm a big knife enthusiast and I have to say, they're not kidding when they say this thing is heavy duty. It's got a decent weight to it. The spring-assist on the one I received is a little slow, but I'm pretty sure that's just because of the preservative in the action yet. It's fairly balanced with a tight grip. There's a slot in the middle of the handle on either side that I'm not quite sure what the purpose is. The belt cutter is in a nice place. I've had other knives where it stuck out too much and you had to use caution when clipping it on your belt or into your pocket. Speaking of which, the belt clip is sturdy enough to where it shouldn't bend for a while with repeated use, however, the included nylon sheath would be a better bet for those that wear belts. Overall, an excellent addition to my collection and a much appreciated gift!
This knife is absolutely gorgeous! After purchasing 1 for my brother’s birthday, I got so jealous I had to buy 1 for myself. It’s not an infomercial knife, but the real deal and it’s price of 50 bolas is a steal. The construction is for real and can take a lickin’. I try not to leave home without it. This knife will not let you down.

This knife is a great looking, sturdy, sharp piece of hardware. It has a great weight and grip which makes for easy use. I am finding uses for it because such a great piece of steel shouldn't just sit around collecting dust. And the price? I dare you to find a comparable knife at the same price. An excellent edition to my extensive blade collection. I highly recommend purchasing one for yourself.
I was surprised on the quality of this knife.
This knife is awesome. Was really surprised on the quality on a knife I had paid only $20 for on sale. I also have the smaller one which I use for deer hunting.
This is without a doubt the best knife ever for $20.
Awesome. Only $20 with very high quality build.
Looks nice. Good weight. Spring mechanism works well (is this legal in all states?) But, it was missing a screw...

It's a 20 dollar knife. The blade is inexpensive steel arrived unable the shave the hair from my arm.... I liked the fact that is has a glass breaker and belt cutter, but after seeing the quality of the blade it concerns me whether I should rely on the belt cutter or not.... The nylon case I like, it has a hard plastic insert to help hold its shape. However, you will always have to be careful unsnapping it because button snap is small and difficult to undo. You can tell by feel that it will eventually pull through if you are not careful.

I bought 2 so I could put one in each of my cars. My primary concern was I had no glass breaker in either car. Once I saw what a beautiful multi-purpose knife this is, I really need a few more for the rest of my family. I'm not sure what the slot in the middle of the knife does as well as the hole in the base of the blade. I'm sure I'll figure it out with time. And I whole-heartedly believe what you said about this knife being badass...I would certainly not want to be on the receiving end of this blade. Thanks for a very very good bargain!

This is a pretty solid knife for the price. I decided to get one about a month ago when shopping for some tasty smokes. This knife is heavy. It's constructed of all-metal parts. Since it's so solidly built I decided to use it as my work knife (I work for a tree service company and our main contract is maintaining power line right-of-ways. I follow the trimmer and feed limbs into a chipper all day). We get in some pretty wild and woolly places, so a good pocket knife comes in handy to cut vines, small limbs, etc. I thought this knife would last for a little while and then conk out on me--like my previous knives, some upwards of $60 and well-known brands. Naturally, I thought a "cigar label" knife would last maybe a couple weeks. No! This thing is still going strong. I've even used it to cut down a 2-inch diameter pine tree (chopping with it like a machete). The serrations work very well as a small saw. I couldn't find any markings or descriptions to determine what sort of steel the blade is made of, but it sharpens with a normal amount of effort and holds an edge extremely well. The only problem I have with it is the screws that hold the sides on. Why in the world are they Torx heads? This wouldn't really be a problem if they didn't work loose from time to time...which they do. If you have a very very small Allen wrench, you can sort of wedge it in there enough to tighten them. A very narrow flathead screwdriver also works. The screws holding the clip/glass breaker on fell out the first week after I got it and the clip disappeared forever. Luckily I had it stuck in my pocket and not clipped on (I've had enough knives snatched out of my pockets by wayward limbs to learn not to rely on the clip!). All in all I'd say this is an excellent knife. Not just for the price, but an excellent knife period! Don't waste your money on a brand name. Get this one.

Very cool!!

Great knife for the price. I bought one and my son got custody. Slow action that can be worked on. I may buy another one. For $19 bucks it's a deal.
