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.

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, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Niiiiice.
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.

Nice
This far exceeds the first production run in this series, flat grind much better then saber grind on blade of this size and intent purpose of camp/hike/survival knife.as far as coatings go, who cares, if your a user, the coating no matter how good is gonna go bye bye, and so what if it does, it adds character to that blade and says I'm a working blade not no shelf queen. Now I do sand coating down with fine grit sandpaper to smooth out. (agree coating to rough). Is this knife perfect...no, but a great USA made blade that is durable, high quality, ergonomic for various size hands, sharpens nicely, good warranty (you probably will never use) kabar and esee are my favorite makers of 1095 blades, others are good but way over priced for 1095 steel, Ontario does a good job with 1095 as well. The sheath is a bit bulky but good quality and serviceable and looks like it will last.
