KABK9: Becker Combat Bowie Knife
KA-BAR

Mr. Becker's combat-ready design is the culmination of over 30 years of survival and para-military training and outfitting experience. The Becker Combat Bowie is a synthesis of Becker's uniquely ergonomic trademark Esta-Loc handle design with a traditionally profiled, highly effective American Bowie style blade. This trademark Becker handle is well known for allowing extended periods of heavy use with less user fatigue than most other knives in its class.

The 9" Bowie inspired shape of the Combat Bowie is a useful performer in a variety of fieldcraft and combat chores. The stout, 3/16" thick, 1095CroVan carbon tool steel blade, is thinly ground for the ultimate in chopping with a deep belly and thin edge that still allows for controlled slicing. The short clip swedge gives the Combat Bowie a unique blade profile that pierces well but is strong enough for many prying and digging tasks. In addition, the grip tang of the Combat Bowie incorporates a uniquely shaped butt extension that will work well for most light hammering jobs in the field.

The Combat Bowie sheath is black Nylon with an internal Kydex stiffener for user safety during hard use. This sheath has been extensively field tested overseas with the Combat Utility Model (BK-7) and has received many accolades from military and civilian users alike. An elasticized auxiliary pouch appropriately sized for a survival kit or spare handgun magazine is permanently attached to the front of the sheath.

One tough mother....
This blade is a beast. I dont know what i was thinking when i ordered it cuz it was much bigger than i anticipated but once it was in my hands it was over. Hacking. Chopping. Slicing.Prying. It is a great camping/outdoors tool. The balance is so well distributed i even use it for mid range throwing. Extremely durable. I have beat the heck out of it almost every day this past month and it's still going strong other than it could be resharpened but thats expected with as much wear and tear I have put on it, although it's sharp enough to shave with out of the box. Excellint buy.
