KABK9: Becker Combat Bowie Knife
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.
