Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Campanion Fixed Blade Knife

Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Campanion Fixed Blade Knife

When opting for a survival knife I look at a few parts, general quality, kind of blade steel, blade thickness, and affordability. Whether you select to get Becker Knives BK2BK7, or BK9 blades you will not be dissatisfied, they are very well designed, extremely comfortable and durable in hand.

Blade Design

The Becker BK2 has a flat grind blade design that does well for big slicing duties, whittling or battoning. The 1/4 inch full tang and carbon steel blade indicates this knife will hold an edge effectively, needs less sharpening and be extremely durable in the field.  The Becker BK2 weighs in at about 1 lb because of the thick 1095 carbon tang and blade. The weight contributes to the effectiveness that this knife has on the slicing block. I have actually put numerous bigger knives to a slicing contest with this blade and it beats them almost every time. It’s really a little monster.

Size and Sheath

The Becker BK2 blade has a length of 5 1/4 inches. The overall length of this survival knife is 10.5 inches which makes it very easy for you to carry on your belt. The BK2 has a sheath made from Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon which supplies additional protection to the blade and suitable for all kinds of weather.

Overall Impression

Truly, the Becker BK2 has shown to be one of the best medium sized survival knife among all others that are present in the market today. All that being said whether you buy Becker BK2, Bk7 or Bk9 blades you will not be dissatisfied. Becker knives are wonderful knives that have earned their names and track records in the survival area.

 

Important notification about Ka-Bar Knives and Becker Knife and Tool:

Ka-Bar Cutlery has actually contracted with Ethan Becker to manufacture the BK&T line of knives. After the bankruptcy of Camillus Cutlery, Western Cutlery, and Becker Knife and Tool – there was some doubt if this line would be resurrected. Ethan had the ability to get the rights to his Becker knives from the Camillus bankruptcy auction and with the KA-BAR production abilities this terrific knife line lives once again.
