KA-BAR BK32 Becker Clear Coat Campanion Fixed 5.25" Blade, Zytel Handles, Polyester Sheath - 2-0032-8
KABK32: Becker Clear Coat Campanion
If you hunt, camp or spend time afield, we know you will love the Becker Clear Coat Campanion designed by Ethan Becker. The knife 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 Campanion 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.
Ethan Becker is a man after our own heart. An avid outdoorsman who enjoys martial arts and hunting, Becker founded Becker Knife and Tool Corporation in the early 1980's to design the industrial-strength tactical and survival knives he'd always wanted for himself. What we love about Becker, other than his innovative designs, is that he spends an exorbitant amount of time in the outdoors testing new equipment and designs. We wish we could too!

An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
This product is USA born and raised.
