KA-BAR ESEE Becker Eskabar Knife
Ka-Bar has done a great job with the Becker Knife and Tool Products. This latest edition is really special.
Beautiful things happen when great things come together. Just like when peanut butter met jelly or Smith met Wesson, the new Es-Ka-bar is the outcome of the Becker Necker meeting the ESSE (Formerly R.A.T. Cutlery) Izula. Basically, they took the handle from Jeff Randall’s Izula, and paired it with the blade from Ethan Becker’s Necker. This solves a great dilemma for us at the KnifeCenter–as we were so torn between our love for the two models that it was often hard to recommend one over the other. Almost as good as when Oscar met Meyer…
