Becker Knife & Tool Designs

Ethan Becker founded Becker Knife & Tool in the early 1980s and set about designing, manufacturing and selling the industrial-strength tactical and survival knives that he had always wanted for himself. His products, the BK&T line, have gone a long way to making these now popular all-black knives in demand.

Mr. Becker spends as much time as possible in the outdoors testing a variety of equipment and knife designs, and also works to expand his primitive and outdoor skills. He collaborated with KA-BAR in 2008 and has reintroduced and brought up to date his best selling models.

This all-tan harpoon point Becker knife features a matching polymer sheath.

Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Best designed BK&T combat knife.
This is a solid knife. It can perform Bushcraft well, outdoors activities and will hold a sharp edge. It is well constructed of 1095 high carbon steel and heat treated properly. It is an excellent knife for an operator, as well as a civilian. The sheath is a hard plastic, form fitted design that compliments the knife. Mounts well on my plate carriers top left shoulder strap and is easily deployable.

Good knife, half-good sheath
This knife is solid, but it is a little too small. If it were offered in multiple sizes, I would choose to have a longer blade. The sheath looks okay, but it makes a loud noise when you remove the knife and put it back in, which is a disadvantage if you are trying to be quiet / stealthy. (Think of hunting and tactical situations where stealth-- or not being noticed-- is important.) The flexible part of the sheath is not very good, but one positive comment about the sheath is that it does hold the knife very securely.

Great knife, but NOT Tek-lok compatible
I’ll leave it to others to review the specifics of the knife, I like it though for the price, great size and features. What is really disappointing to me though is the lack of tek-lok compatibility on the sheath. The rep in the video said it would be. It most definitely is NOT tek-lok friendly. Only one hole will line up at a time, the only way to attach it would be to also put a screw through one of the slots - not ideal, not particularly secure and canted weird. I know Becker says he does not like tek-lok, but I need fixed blades to ride high on my waistband often to keep them out of the way. The belt loop just doesn’t allow for this. Maybe they could offer a conversion plate that would take the place of the belt loop piece (I.e., using the screw holes that make it ambi) that would align with a tek-lok? I’d buy that for a few bucks. In the meantime, I’m going to try to 3D print or kydex something along those lines. A similar option for molle would be cool too.
