KABK2: BK2 Becker Companion
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.

You WILL break this knife
Don't get me wrong, it's a heck of a knife for the money. Holds a great edge, easy to sharpen, splits wood like a champ if you're into that type of thing, and it will do the finer tasks, though that requires a bit of touch. But if you baton this knife, you WILL break it eventually. Yep, it's full tang but it has cut outs in the handle to reduce weight. This means you have very little actual steel in the handle, if you baton it, it will snap what little there is. So overall not bad, but you gotta have a true Full tang in a knife designed for what this one is.
