Description
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.

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.

Companion Knife.
This would be one of my 2 choices to bring along with me for "camping" I like this knife. I wish they would offer like a stainless steel finish, with their knives.

Excellent blade after some modding!
Out of the box the blade has slippery (but well shaped!) handle and not anything near to sharp 90 degree angle on the back. Nylon sheath is sturdy, but the belt loop is awful - as every online review states. HOWEVER, by doing the common mods, this blade became a worthy companion: - stripped the black coating to remove the useless tacticool look - forced patina to prevent rusting - switched nuts and bolts to stainless steel, nyloc ones - wrapped handle with the same friction tape that is used with ice hockey sticks - used a file to get the sharp angle on the spine of the blade - looped elastic band (round, black, commonly found on backpacks, clothing) through the two bottom holes of the sheath and around my thigh. This removes the issue that the flimsy belt loop causes. Took me about a day, but now the BK2 is truly the tool I was looking for.
