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.
