Description

Description

The Becker Combat Bowie is a synthesis of Becker's trademark ergonomic handle design and a traditionally profiled American Bowie style blade, the Combat Bowie has proven to perform well during extended periods of use with less user fatigue than most other knives in its class. It is a useful performer in a variety of combat and field craft chores.

Features a black finished 1095 Cro-Van steel Bowie style clip point blade measuring over 9" -- this knife means business. The Grivory handles are ergonomically designed and keep the weight down on this knife. Comes with cordura sheath.

This is a great knife. I have chopped, cut, sliced, split wood, etc with this blade, and it has not failed yet. Just the finish starts to wear off a little. I own several kabars, and this is one of my favorites.
Good knife that fills a niche

The best use for this knife is chopping and batoning, but after splitting a few logs I felt the edge on mine dulled rather quickly and I almost wished I had ended up using an axe rather than a knife because that edge was so nice when I got it. Light chopping and camp tasks are what I would stick to with this knife.

A great primary woods knife. The blade is a powerful chopper and handles batoning well. Finer tasks like feathersticking are also within the realms of this blade’s capabilities. The handle is perfectly shaped for chopping, and the distinct “hook” near the pommel keeps your hand from sliding back. However, the zytel is fairly slick. The sheath is also somewhat mediocre. I’ve owned this knife for about 2 years, and I think I will finally purchase an aftermarket sheath and handle scales to make up for these minor shortcomings.
This knife is a beast.

This knife is really good for hiking or camping. It'll cut through wood very easily whether you are chopping or batoning. The only set back is that the grip is a little bit slippery.
