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.

Grata surpresa
Ja conhecia a qualidade dos produtos KA-BAR, tenho a muitos anos uma D2 e mais recentemente uma BK2 e BK11, portanto já esperava excelentes produtos. Minha surpresa ocorreu quando notei que a Ka-bar havia mudado o acabamento da lâmina. Ela vem com acabamento granulado e com gravação do fabricante e modelo de uma forma que aumenta a robustez da faca. Parabéns KA BAR, coseguiram o quase impossível, melhorar um produto de excelente qualidade. Already knew the product quality KA-BAR, have many years one D2 and more recently BK11 and BK2 therefore now expect excellent products. My surprise came when I noticed that the Ka-bar had changed the finish of the blade. It has been finished granulate and recording the manufacturer and model in a manner that increases the strength of the knife. Congratulations KA BAR, coseguiram almost impossible to improve a product of excellent quality.

An excellent tool
The Becker 9 is really an excellent knife. The blade will do all of those things that they tell you never to do with a knife. Chop, pry, hammer, whatever. I've had mine for six months and only lately needed to sharpen it. Hard to beat carbon steel. It is always razor sharp and honing was a matter of a few strokes on the silicon carbide and then a few on the hard Japanese water stone. I cut a willow sapling with five or six strokes. The cons are minor. For my hand, the handle could be a little meatier and a guard would make this knife perfect. This knife was worth every penny I paid and outperforms some more expensive products.
