The KA-BAR BK3 Becker Tac Tool is the ultimate tactical fixed blade that takes the definition of hard-use knives to a whole new level. This knife is designed to be used and abused, tortured and beaten, and pushed to the extreme.
Legendary knifemaker Ethan Becker and 37-year police veteran John Benner designed the Becker Tac Tool for urban SWAT teams who would need a reliable tool that could pry, chop, hack, chisel, hammer, and more. Although the boys delivered a remarkable tool for SWAT teams, the BK3 has taken on life as an all-around survival tool.
The heart of the Tac Tool is the beastly blade. Coming in at a hefty 7 inches, the blade is made from 1095 Cro-Van steel with a thickness of a quarter of an inch. The partially serrated blade is powerful enough to pry open doors without breaking a sweat and a slot on the black offers another method for cutting rope or saving lives.
A powerful tool needs a powerful handle, and KA-BAR delivers. The Ultramid handle scales are as durable and comfortable as they come. When you're breaking through a window with this tool, your hand will feel like it's gripping a pillow.
This USA-made knife comes with a MOLLE compatible hard plastic sheath that makes carrying this tool easy and effortless.
Whether you're serving this great country overseas or trekking through the woods, you'll want this hard-use knife right by your side.

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.
Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.
He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was 'k a bar'. The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.
