KABK9: Becker Combat Bowie Knife
KA-BAR

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.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Weight, Finish, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
That's not a knife.....Thats a knife,
I'm a fussy guy when it comes too knives, But after seeing Chris Tanner's "Preparedmind101" youtube channel, and how he raves on about "Becky" (his BK9) I got curious and checked out the knifes stats, seemed solid enough so took a shot and purchased the knife from here, Its a big knife, (almost a short sword LOL) Wa? combat knife.....maybe if you were going to take on a T Rex....who was driving a tank... Anywhoo..the length and weight of the blade make it a solid light chopper (I would have preferred a thicker blade, and the extra weight would have made it a better chopper, but I understand the weight concerns of long term/distance carry) One of the advantages of buying a popular and modular knife (its very easy to strip down in too its basic parts) is that there are a lot of customizable options on the interwebs for people, so should your scales or sheath not be your "cup o tea", then you have the option to remedy your concerns, nice, I was impressed enough by this blades quality and value for money I went on to buy a further three models of KA-BAR BK's Cheers Chris,
