KABK21: BK21 Becker/Reinhardt Kukri
KA-BAR
 
It's finally here! KA-BAR introduces the Becker/Reinhardt Kukri, a labor of love designed and perfected with Ethan Becker and the Reinhardt Estate to represent one of the best US made kukri's on the market today. Made from 0.188" thick 1095 Cro-Van steel, the kukri's 13.25" epoxy powder coated blade is proudly embellished with Hank Reinhardt's signature and coupled with Becker's distinct handle shape and a practical polyester sheath.

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 to reintroduce and update his best selling models and together they continue to design models to expand the line.

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 (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Nylon Sheath
Nylon Sheath

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Finish, None
Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Weight
Awkward
Tip heavy with poor balanceSmall slippery gripBasic nylon sheath with marginal belt loopKa-Bar sells a better sheath ($60) and less slippery grip ($40). I’m surprised that they don’t offer sized grips since they’re bolt-on.I wouldn’t buy it again.

Fun Chopper
Beautiful new toy for the collection! Lots of forward weight that makes chopping and splitting nice. Sharp enough to use the heal of the blade for feathering. This is a unique and well designed tool in my opinion!

Not all its cut out to be!
Although the BK21 isnot a bad chopper, its not anything like the craz and hype everyones boosting about online. Got mine in the mail yesterday and took it out to the woods today (fatherdays) put it up against the Kershaw camp 10, ontario kukri (my favorite for the last year, though with my own grind on the blade) the cold steel sk5 kukri, ka-bar parangatang and the kershaw camp 18. If you want a real chopper, try the paramgatang and also for the cost, give the camp 10 a swing, you wont regret it. The kershaw camp 10 now rides on my hip, and the parangatang will be riding on my backpack after i get done making a kydex sheath for it, coz the sheath it comes with SUCKS BIG TIME! And so does the sheath that comes with the BK21... Good luck in your search for the holy grail of a woodmans blade, like myself, the searxh goes on, but for now my new companions are the kershaw camp 10 amd tje ka-bar parangatang
