Mr. Becker's latest 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 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 .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 edge 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 propex 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 user's alike. 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.
