KABK21: BK21 Becker/Reinhardt Kukri
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.

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.
Durable, flexible, abrasion and mildew resistant, Nylon also is very strong
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
This product is USA born and raised.
