KABK2: BK2 Becker Campanion
If you hunt, camp or spend time afield, we know you will love the Becker Campanion. 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 Campanion 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.

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.
Kydex Sheath
Kydex Sheath
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.

Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Materials
Cons: None
I have been a knife and tool nut since I was a youngster, it's been awhile since then. So I want to say I like this knife quite a bit. And I'm annoyed about people who buy this knife and complain about the length of the blade. It's in the description! It's in the description everywhere its sold. It's a wonderful tool that's built to last made in our wonderful but confused's made to work to last and do what a 5.25" knife is supposed to do without letting you down and this knife will do what you need a 5.25" knife to do and some. If you don't own this knife but have been thinking about buying it go ahead it holds a edge very well feels great and it is tough and reliable that is why the name of this knife is exactly what it should be and lives up to it ... Your "COMPANION".... Becker BK2 Companion. I love it and appreciate it very much. Will buy another very soon as I like to have twos of my favorites.

Mandatory EDC carry for my first Pluto Trip.
I am considering a pre-purchase ticket for the first commercial flight to Pluto. My gear will be an AK47, a BK2, a Benchmade Adamas 275 and a Sig P239 9mm... With that out of the way let us get serious, the Bk2 is a "shorter knife". There are far lighter knives with longer blades, but obviously will they have the strength for prying and wedging? Is this knife made for battoning, truth is it is made for everything. Anyone packing for any trip must decide on what they are prepared to carry and how. How many people go canoeing without considering water proof matches? Sure you could carry a hand saw, a longer battoning survival knife, a camp cooking knife, a multi tool. Heck if you were fairly sure you were actually planning on spending a day cutting wood; most people would consider the weight of an axe acceptable due to the sheer convenience after the hike for the 4 hours of wood you planned on cutting. This knife is a shorter knife, yes it is heavy, but for anyone who plans on anything unforeseen; it is the best compromise. This knife will do anything and it will not fail you any more than anything you could possibly need in any survival situation. THAT is ITS strength, this knife will be an knife, can opener, camp knife, hole digger, skinner, chopper, pry bar, machete and light hatchet all in one tool.. THAT is ITS StReNgTh, it will do anything and everything you cannot imagine all in one package. If you are not sure exactly what might happen in the back woods, then this is the IDEA knife; heck if you are skilled enough you could kill a Grizzly with this knife, but if you "fail" i bet the knife will be in better shape than you are... Sure a longer or different blade shape would be of use on a hunting trip, but this knife could skin something; but conversely would you consider hammering in tent pegs or prying or digging with your skinning knife, we can all see the tip badly 'broken'. This one knife will do anything you could ask any similar sized shaped tool could possibly do, that is its strength, THAT is why it is packing for Pluto with my Sig and AK47...
