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.

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, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Pros: Materials, Finish, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
BK16 is very good.
The knife itself is really well designed. Light and nimble due to the thickness, hollowed out tang and full flat grind. The scales are strongly held by 3 allen screws. The handles are zytel- a very hard and tough plastic. The knife is worth the money and the sheath is Ok but could be and should be better. Taking the knife in/out of the sheath is a slow process. The snap-on straps that secure the handle are difficult to use and if you're not careful, you will cut one. Compared to other sheaths and especially the Fallkniven zytel sheaths this sheath is too long and clumsy. It's not the worst that I've seen. this knife comes with additional set of brown handles which are unnecessary. Instead of brown, hunting bright orange color would be a better option. If ka-bar ever improve the sheath, this will be a 5-star product.

Pros: Materials, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Imo best blade shape of the midsized beckers. Good grind. Very sharp from the factory. However, i wet sanded the finish on the blade with 2000 grit wet/dry auto sandpaper and it smoothed it out really nice. Its stil coated just very smooth. Cuts very nicely oh and definately opt for the upgraded micarta handle scales from becker. Theyre a serious upgrade as the stock handle slabs are just plastic and kinda smooth.
