Both ESEE and KA-BAR Becker Knife & Tool are well known for their durable, dependable outdoor knives. Each company with somewhat similar ideas when it comes to compact survival knives. These small one-piece knives provide owners with the no-nonsense toughness of larger survival knives but in a smaller, more lightweight design. The ESSE Izula features an simple handle shape and a 2.75" blade. While the KA-BAR Becker Necker pairs a slightly larger 3.25" blade with a unusually shaped handle which incorporates an integrated bottle opener on the end. Combining the more comfortable handle of an ESEE Izula with the slightly more robust blade of the KA-BAR BK11 Becker Necker almost seems like it was meant to be.
The Ka-Bar BK14 Eskabar is constructed from a single piece of 1095 Cro-Van steel. The 3.25" drop point blade is flat ground and covered with a corrosion resistant black coating. The knife is 7" overall and includes a hard plastic sheath as well as a length of 550 cord. The BK14 uses a skeletonized handle that saves weight while maintaining durability. This design gives the owner the flexibility to use the knife as is or to wrap the handle with 550 paracord for extra comfort. These knives are made in USA by KA-BAR and feature the ESEE logo on one side as well as the KA-BAR Becker Knife & Tool logo on the other.
