Mr. Becker's latest design is the culmination of over 30 years of survival training and outfitting experience. The Becker Bowie is a synthesis of Becker's uniquely ergonomic trademark 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 Bowie is a useful performer in a variety of fieldcraft and utility chores. The stout .210" thick 0170-6 high 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 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 Bowie incorporates a uniquely shaped butt extension that will work well for most light hammering jobs in the field.
The Bowie sheath is black propex Nylon with an internal Kydex stiffener for user safety during hard use. This sheath has been extensively field tested overseas with the Becker Utility Model (BK-7) and has received many accolades from users. An elasticized auxiliary pouch appropriately sized for a survival kit or spare handgun magazine is permanently attached to the front of the sheath. This practical sheath is also ALICE compatible, and also jump-safe for Airborne operations.
