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.

Becker Bushcrafter
This is by far my favorite knife out of all the Beckers I've used. I love the BK-2, but the BK-16 is much more practical in my opinion. It's a bit shorter, and significantly thinner. The full flat grind lends to much better slicing capabilities, and makes it much better for general survival/bushcraft tasks. Don't get me wrong, I love .250" thick blades. The "sharpened pry bar" style of the BK-2 and others like it are indestructible and just plain badass, but over the years I've grown to like thinner blades. They're just more practical, and still sturdy enough to beat on a little bit (thanks to Ka-Bar's awesome heat treatment.) If you do end up purchasing any of the Becker knives, I'd recommend buying some paint stripper to remove the coating. They look (and perform) a hell of a lot better when stripped down to the bare metal. The coating on the newer models just created too much drag when slicing. Also, the micarta handles available for the Beckers are worth it in my opinion. The Grivory/zytel ones that come stock on them are nice, but they're a bit slick. Not a huge deal, but I love micarta handle scales and they'll definitely give you more traction on your paws. Overall, I love the BK-16, and it's my new favorite knife in my collection. I plan on getting a few more of the Beckers in the near future. They're all superb hard use knives, and they can take whatever you throw at them. Ethan Becker is the man!

Love it EXCELLENT !!!!
I use it for hunting, camping and wilderness survival skills. I like the blade and sheath. I'm not to imprest with the amount of steel in the handle looks like it might break.
