KaBar Becker Necker Neck Knife with Carbon San Mai Blade
Becker is back … again! Ethan Becker designs great knives; he just always seems to partner with manufacturers that proceed to go out of business. This time he has joined forces with the fine folks at Ka-Bar – and they’re not going anywhere. KaBar has the talent, resources and vision to build his knives better than they have been built before. A great example is the first knife they are releasing, the composite blade Necker. This Japanese produced version of the Necker is made from carbon San Mai steel. It is not only a beautiful knife, but a very functional and effective one.
Here is the information from KaBar:
The first Becker knife released under the KA-BAR product line, the BK11CSM is an updated version of the Becker Necker. Made to the same dimensions as the original, the CSM Necker features a Carbon San Mai blade. Carbon San Mai is a carbon steel core with a 410 stainless steel laminate overlay. Each knife comes with a plastic injection molded sheath.
