KABK15: BK15 Becker Short Trailing Point
KA-BAR Knives
The BK15 Short Becker Tailing Point is modestly sized field knife perfect for belt or pack carry. It's a do it all knife for hunting, camping, and all types of outdoor activities. But it can also be counted on in tactical situations. It comes with two sets of zytel handles, one black and one coyote brown, depending on your preference. The Cordura sheath is very high quality with two retention straps for Airborne units and a storage pouch for survival or sharpening items. This is a lightweight knife with a thin comfortable handle and can be carried all day without issue.

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: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Great medium sized blade
This knife is great, and it's sexy. I could do without the black, but that's why I removed that. It's easy to sharpen, it was easy to strip, it's easy to clean. The handles and sheath could be better, but at this sale price I came back and bought 3 more. Came very sharp, able to make even sharper. This is a good knife, and it comes at a great price.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Finish, Blade Sharpness
decent with work
I bought the knife as an extra to go in an emergency kit .The sheath is ok but nothing extra. However it is one of the better nylon/plastic lined sheaths out there. The steel is in my opinion one of the better ones for an all around knife that would be called on to preform multiple tasks. The design is also a good choice for the purpose. The biggest downfall of the knife is the finish. If all one intends to do with it is cut rope and process wood it is fine .However if it will be called on to prepare food it truely sucks .The rough finish is difficult to clean and drags when the knife is used for slicing be it animal or plant If companies insist on using it. It should be an option not a standard feature.While the very rough finish can be removed or smoothed out with sandpaper it is in my opinion an unnecessary annoyance .The edge on my particular one was another downside .while it was reasonably sharp it was very rough with very noticible grinding marks

Steal this for this price.
For this price (the sale of $43), this knife can't be beat. If you are looking for a small/medium sized fixed blade with a decent steel, this knife is the buy for your. I don't like the black, but that was stripped easily. It's great now, truly great. Pros: Sharp, nice steel for price, light yet sturdy. Cons: Slippery handle (can be fixed by filing small grooves to your liking), sheath is just okay.
