BK5 Becker Magnum Camp Knife
The 0.188" Becker Magnum Camp is the perfect field knife. It has a large trailing point but not overly heavy blade and is designed for a variety of uses. It can chop wood or cook a camp dinner. With its 0.188" carbon steel blade, it's a heavy duty and very solidly built knife. The removable handles give it a great grip to medium and large size hands. Fit and finish are perfect with even grind lines and shaving sharp right out of the box. Becker products are manufactured by KA-BAR Knives in Olean, NY using top quality materials. The Nylon sheath features a hard plastic lining for secure and safe storage. This is a great investment for longtime ownership. We consider this to be one of the best value fixed blade knives.

Becker Knife & Tool Designs
Ethan Becker founded Becker Knife & Tool in the early 1980's and set about designing, manufacturing and selling the industrial-strength tactical and survival knives that he had always wanted for himself. His products, the BK&T line, have gone a long way to making these now popular all-black knives in demand.

Mr. Becker spends as much time as possible in the outdoors testing a variety of equipment and knife designs, and also works to expand his primitive and outdoor skills. He collaborated with KA-BAR in 2008 and has reintroduced and brought up to date his best selling models.

1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
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.
Nylon Sheath
Nylon Sheath
Durable, flexible, abrasion and mildew resistant, Nylon also is very strong
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
You don’t need to spend a mint to buy a good knife
Kabar has done a great job with continuing the Becker line of knives. Notable to durable design and build, coupled with reasonable pricing, for a decent working knife these are difficult to beat. This particular camp knife was exactly what I was looking for in regard to a knife to keep on my UTV for use on my property. Razor sharp from the box. Good blade geometry means re-sharpening shouldn’t be difficult. Decent sheath. I have not yet put it to the test, but I’ve owned a LOT of knives and I’m satisfied this was a good choice.

Restart the world with this thing
Ok....yeah...the sheath could be better, but os could my 91 Toyota pickup. Works as designed . it does quite well what a sheath is used for and that is to safely store a knife. This is a large working knife for outdoor use. It is tough and as reliable as an iron skillet. I have used mine to make trails on property, make kindling, camp kitchen work, etc. in a pinch it would be intimidating as heck for 2-legged troubles. Check this out for a killer review. Not mine, but similar usage. Buy one. The are great large outdoor knives. https://sailingradmode.com/2015/07/09/3-year-knife-review-the-becker-bk-5-magnum-camp/

Pros: Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Handle Material
Very good knife
This is a great field knife. Easy to carry. Good shape. The handle is smallish and slippery. The Becker grip upgrade is $44+. The standard Kabar handle is much better.
