These specially designed U.S.A. made Micarta scales were custom made to fit the KA-BAR / Becker knife & tool models BK-16 Drop Point as a high end replacement to the original Zytel scales.
Micarta is a material created by layers upon layers of fiber laminates combined with resins and processed with heat and combined pressure to chemically alter the layers into one solid very durable product. These BK scales are a combination of canvas layers & resins.
Because of the process and the different grains of the laminate materials, each scale is unique to itself and no two look alike.
Micarta has been used since the early 1900's as a proven long lasting durable agent in many of the industrial fields and has been used in the making of high end knife handles for years.
The BK Micarta scales provide a stable grip and better control while the knife is in use which also creates a safer work environment.
These BK Micarta scales will not only give you a better grip, they will give your knife that custom high end appearance that you're looking for. Purchase is for one set of scales consisting of a left and right side.
These Micarta scales are completely customizable utilizing a medium to fine sandpaper allowing them to be shaped and customized exactly to the owners hand grip and comfort, many of our customers have reported changing the color of the scales by soaking them in RIT clothing dye.
