KABK9: Becker Combat Bowie Knife

Mr. Becker's combat-ready design is the culmination of over 30 years of survival and para-military training and outfitting experience. The Becker Combat Bowie is a synthesis of Becker's uniquely ergonomic trademark Esta-Loc handle design with a traditionally profiled, highly effective American Bowie style blade. This trademark Becker handle is well known for allowing extended periods of heavy use with less user fatigue than most other knives in its class.

The 9" Bowie inspired shape of the Combat Bowie is a useful performer in a variety of fieldcraft and combat chores. The stout, 3/16" thick, 1095CroVan carbon tool steel blade, is thinly ground for the ultimate in chopping with a deep belly and thin edge that still allows for controlled slicing. The short clip swedge gives the Combat Bowie a unique blade profile that pierces well but is strong enough for many prying and digging tasks. In addition, the grip tang of the Combat Bowie incorporates a uniquely shaped butt extension that will work well for most light hammering jobs in the field.

The Combat Bowie sheath is black Nylon with an internal Kydex stiffener for user safety during hard use. This sheath has been extensively field tested overseas with the Combat Utility Model (BK-7) and has received many accolades from military and civilian users alike. An elasticized auxiliary pouch appropriately sized for a survival kit or spare handgun magazine is permanently attached to the front of the sheath.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
5/5 Blade, 3/5 Sheath.
This knife is a very well rounded knife for what i use it for. Great for processing wood, chopping, whittling, etc. Very light for the size which is a big plus IMO. Amazing camp knife! The sheath could've been made better. Love the carrying options but the quality is a bit poor. I had mine for a week of very light use and the velcro on the retaining straps that hold it away from the edge came right undone. So i cut the straps right off and put some shock cord through the top lanyard holes to hold the handle tight. Much better. So yeah, Blade gets a 5/5, but the sheath gets a 3/5. Worth the buy regardless. Amazing knife!

This is the knife your looking for!
Purchased the BK9 on Wednesday and it arrived that Friday, very fast shipping. After holding this in my hand I cannot see how anyone could dislike such a badass knife. It is light, comfortable and sharp right out of the box, and not to mention GIGANTIC!!! Only downside is the sheath that it came with. After putting the knife in and out of the sheath a few times the stitching on one of the velcro straps that holds the handle came loose. For that I give this buy an overall 4 but the knife is definitely a 5/5.
