Becker Knives has been at the forefront of hard use survival knives and tools since 1980. Chief designer and founder Ethan Becker, an avid outdoorsman since his youth, spent 25 years searching for the ideal "big knife" design.
His latest knife designs use, 1095 Cro-Van high carbon tool steel which has been specially selected to give the Becker Knife and Tool line clear superiority in the edge-holding and toughness departments among its chief competitors. The ergonomic, trademark handle scales of the BK& T knives are molded of Grivory, a 60% glass filled thermoplastic polymer alloy for the ultimate in strength and durability. Kydex and/or ballistic cloth nylon (with Kydex inserts) multi-carry sheath systems and a rugged black powder epoxy blade coat are standard equipment for all models in the Becker Knife and Tool line.
