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 it's 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: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
I like this blade the more I use it, Not to long for bushcrafting yet thick enough that you can happily baton with confidence, a very nice little all rounder, But the sheath is Coyote tan, Totally messing up my Ninja!, Please keep it Henry Ford KA-BAR BK

Cons: None
Perfect edc,camp,hike,work knife
Great blade geometry, great handle to fit varied hand size, maybe small for xl hands, sheath is not my personal pick but is good quality and very functional, came sharp with good edge bevel on each side, (consistent). Wish the finish was smoother, I'll take care of that. I also have bk15, same report on it as bk16, the bk17 is next. Anyone who dishes this knife and sheath (unless obvious manufacturer flaw) is just being critical and giving personal likes and dislikes as gospel, read between the lines on some reviews, let the majority of the reviews be your guide, and pay attention to the less then stellar reviews and watch for haters, knife and sheath are great, not perfect,but no knife is, why we have so many choices :-)

Cons: Finish, Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Materials
Not to impressed...
Primary purpose camping and hiking. The only thing about it I like is the size, but the pictures of the knife are very misleading. Do not like the finish that was on it, would have preferred a smoother finish. The sheath just does not go with the knife, looks like they just gave it a sheath that the knife could fit into. Overall not happy with it, wish they would have kept the original production run.
