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.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Finish, None
This knife is almost perfect. It's as good as a do-it-all knife gets. The flat saber grind is durable, but thin enough to do serious slicing tasks, and the point is fine but strong for both detailed and abusive survival and utility work. The handle is great-hugs the contour of your hand without any aggressive corners. Kabar needs to drop the new textured coat and go back to the old flat finish. Mine is all torn up after a week of use and looks like crap. And, of course, price the blade comparatively size-wise with the rest of the Beckers... Sheath is AWESOME-10 different mounting solutions, retains the blade with no questions, no blade ratle in the sheath, well-finished and durable.

Cons: Finish, None
Wonderful knife, Crummy Blade Finish
Ergonomically this knife is nearly perfect. It is the right size and heft for a lot of tasks. The sheath is solid, though a Kydex sheath option would be wonderful. The only real complaint I have is about the blade finish. It feels like traction tape. A poor choice. I ended up removing the finish to reveal a rather attractive stonewash finish. This knife would be a 5 with a smoother finish.
