KABK9: Becker Combat Bowie Knife

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.

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

one big knife
I bought the BK9 for a gift but after seeing it I may buy one for myself. I have been using a BK2 that is much smaller but almost as heavy. I really like the positive grip of these knives but as others have said the handle scales are a little slippery. I don't think this is a problem with the double hooked handle. Scabbard of the BK9 is very nice. It has a velcro closure on the loop to allow fixing to a belt without taking the belt off. The stone pouch on the front would hold a small diamond hone. I found another plastic sleeve behind the stone pouch that looks like it would hold a very small skeletonized knife but could not find information on what fits. Becker doesn't provide any instructions.

5/5 Blade, 3/5 Sheath.
This knife is a very well rounded knife for what i use it for. Great for processing wood, chopping, whittling, etc. Very light for the size which is a big plus IMO. Amazing camp knife! The sheath could've been made better. Love the carrying options but the quality is a bit poor. I had mine for a week of very light use and the velcro on the retaining straps that hold it away from the edge came right undone. So i cut the straps right off and put some shock cord through the top lanyard holes to hold the handle tight. Much better. So yeah, Blade gets a 5/5, but the sheath gets a 3/5. Worth the buy regardless. Amazing knife!
