KABK5: Becker Magnum Camp Knife
KA-BAR Knives

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.

Cons: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, None
robust knife
This knife will become your reliable companion at a party on the mother nature. With this knife, you can go away for a long time and that would test themselves and merge with nature. The knife is a bit heavy, it is both good and bad. Poorly because of heavy campaigns you think every gram. Good, because if the knife is light, it is difficult to hack, and besides weight - this margin of safety. This knife for woodland, to work in the camp. Knife sufficiently big, but this knife is convenient to operate even in the kitchen - which means that it is made ergonomically.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Could not pass up the super price here at Knife Center having needed a BK5 to augment my BK15. The BK5 is everything I hoped it would be and have come to expect from all of the Beckers I own. The BK5 came shaving sharp out of the box. It's balance in the hand makes slicing and dicing in the kitchen effortless. And could do well as a martial use blade as well. Can't wait to try it out as a large animal skinning knife. I will eventually strip the rough finish and do a convex edge on it (just to further improve it's sliceyness). As with all BK&T knives it lends itself easily to personalizing such as new scales, refinish of the blade, and addition of lanyards as needed. Ethan Becker's collaboration with Jerry Fisk in the design of the BK5 have produced a real winner. USA made knife, but the China made sheath, although serviceable, can be bettered with any of the many custom makers.

This was bought as a camp chore/ food prep knife for the outdoors. It's huge! Bigger than I thought it would be. It came as sharp as can be. I think I love this thing, and I'd like a reason to carry it everywhere. At this sale price it's great, I would say it's a total steal at any price point under 75. Handle and sheath could be better.
