Description
KABK15: BK15 Becker Short Trailing Point
KA-BAR Knives
 
The BK15 Short Becker Tailing Point is modestly sized field knife perfect for belt or pack carry. It's a do it all knife for hunting, camping, and all types of outdoor activities. But it can also be counted on in tactical situations. It comes with two sets of zytel handles, one black and one coyote brown, depending on your preference. The Cordura sheath is very high quality with two retention straps for Airborne units and a storage pouch for survival or sharpening items. This is a lightweight knife with a thin comfortable handle and can be carried all day without issue.

Becker Knife & Tool Designs

Ethan Becker founded Becker Knife & Tool in the early 1980's and set about designing, manufacturing and selling the industrial-strength tactical and survival knives that he had always wanted for himself. His products, the BK&T line, have gone a long way to making these now popular all-black knives in demand.

Mr. Becker spends as much time as possible in the outdoors testing a variety of equipment and knife designs, and also works to expand his primitive and outdoor skills. He collaborated with KA-BAR in 2008 and has reintroduced and brought up to date his belt selling models.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Material, None
Cons: Finish
Well made and intellegently designed -- an excelent value
I use this product in the outdoors (ie. camping, skinning, carving, bush craft). The geometry works well on most slicing and carving tasks however the coating causes a bit of friction at times and the beveled spine is not ideal for batoning (which is not a problem for me because this is not why I purchased the knife). The factory edge comes decently sharp, the handle fits very well on a medium to medium large sized hand, the handle has a nice fit, the handles have nice friction, the blade is balanced decently well, and the vibrational node ("sweet spot") is well placed on the blade. The knife is not perfect but I doubt a better deal for this price exists.

A steal for less than 45 dollars
This is a beautiful light duty knife. Great for cleaning game, preparing foods or gutting fish. The only thing I don't care for is the handle texture. Fits nice in the hand though. If you want a great hunting knife and your not wanting to spend a lot this is a great knife to consider.
