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.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.

Real Monster
After reviewing comments from various sites, I decided to give this knife a shot. Definitely no regret! It is a real monster indeed. Tried it out during my camping trips and I have to agree that it is Jack of all trades but master of none. But with such attractive price and quality, we can not expect it to be THE PERFECT KNIFE. Sheath indeed sucks, so I decided to get the nylon sheath which is much better.

Wow x 3
This thing is crazy. I had idea of what I was ordering but until you put this beast in your hand you really have no idea. This is one of those "you just have to have one" knives. I have put it in my Go Bag just in case I run into Godzilla. Ka-Bar, ding ding ding - great knife.

BK2
Great beefy knife can do small tasks and chop. Batoning would prefer a larger knife but for small stuff works great. sheath is good for a pack or molle attach crap for carry bought a spec ops sheath and it's perfect. Bit heavy for long trips in the woods but good for short ones and the camp site. Put hockey tape on the handle for more grip the base of the handle for me has made it the best for chopping compared to other knives. Give in take on the handle considered 4 stars for the sheath, but it's still better then so many horrible sheaths out there biggest complaint with all companies.
