When you hold the KA-BAR BK9 Becker Combat Bowie in your hands, you'll instantly realize why this large knife is so popular.

The 14.75-inch knife boasts impressive power and versatility without feeling clumsy or burdensome. That's thanks to Ethan Becker's trademark ergonomic handle made from Grivory. This durable yet comfortable material cuts down on fatigue when you're wielding the 1.05-pound Bowie knife for extended periods of time.

But the real power of the Combat Bowie shine's through the long 9-inch blade made from 1095 Cro-Van steel, which is a carbon steel known for being tough and easy to sharpen.

The blade has a flat grind at a 20-degree angle and a swedge at the tip to give it a clip-point shape. This allows for better control in more deliberate cuts while the belly of the blade is optimal for chopping.

On top of everything, the blade is coated with black epoxy powder to reduce the steel's reflective properties and add some corrosion resistance.

Although the USA-made knife is called the Combat Bowie, it's been widely hailed as an essential outdoor tool for military personnel and civilians alike.

This heavy-duty knife comes with a black nylon sheath that's been tested extensively (like the knife itself) to offer a secure and comfortable carry wherever you go.

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.

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
