Description
KABK2: BK2 Becker Companion
KA-BAR
 
If you hunt, camp or spend time afield, we know you will love the Becker Companion. I have needed this knife for at least 20 of the 45 years that I have spent camping, hunting, and fooling around in odd corners of the earth. The Companion has a large, comfortable handle, mated to a wide sturdy blade that is as happy skinning game and prying apart joints as it is chopping onions for the chili and splitting out small kindling for the fire. The Companion blade is constructed from 1095 Cro-Van carbon steel, which is like 1095 carbon steel. It is a low alloy carbon steel but with chrome and vanadium carbides…to provide extra strength and wear resistance, which gives you a knife that is easy to sharpen and still holds a good edge.

Pros: Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
Excellent blade after some modding!
Out of the box the blade has slippery (but well shaped!) handle and not anything near to sharp 90 degree angle on the back. Nylon sheath is sturdy, but the belt loop is awful - as every online review states. HOWEVER, by doing the common mods, this blade became a worthy companion: - stripped the black coating to remove the useless tacticool look - forced patina to prevent rusting - switched nuts and bolts to stainless steel, nyloc ones - wrapped handle with the same friction tape that is used with ice hockey sticks - used a file to get the sharp angle on the spine of the blade - looped elastic band (round, black, commonly found on backpacks, clothing) through the two bottom holes of the sheath and around my thigh. This removes the issue that the flimsy belt loop causes. Took me about a day, but now the BK2 is truly the tool I was looking for.
