KA-BAR Becker BK2 Campanion Survival Knife Review

Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Campanion Fixed Blade Knife

The KA-BAR Becker series knives are one of the most highly reviewed and sought after survival knives. There is a lot of criticism on the web about just about every knife on the market, but you wont find a lot of that with the KA-BAR Knives. The Becker BK2 Companion is the best survival knife for someone that does not want to carry a lot of weight, is on a budget, and wants full functionality.

  • Shape: Drop Point
  • Edge Angle: 20 Degrees
  • Steel: 1095 Cro-Van

Light Weight and Effective

The Becker BK2 Campanion is the best survival knife for someone who wants to carry a light weight blade that has a ton of usability. The full tang, 1/4 inch thick, 5.25" blade is made of 1095 cro-van steel and is the right size for small batoning and chopping chores yet is easy to carry and light weight. The full flat grind of the blade allows it to baton like a champ even though that it is a bit inhibited by the blade size. You wont be batoning huge logs with this knife but it will easily split kindling and medium size logs. The Becker BK2 also excels at dressing game and any other campsite chores.

The Handle Specs

The handle is made of glass filled nylon or otherwise called Grivory, it has a steel pummel on the butt of the knife for any pounding or hammering applications. It has a single lanyard hole at the base which a para cord lanyard or other type of lanyard can be attached.

The Overall Feel

I am very satisfied with the quality of this knife. I’ve had Beckers before and I’ve had Ka-Bars before but this one is my favorite from both the brands. I have total confidence in this knife. It is currently the knife I rely on in my bug-out gear and I would wear it everyday if I had to. This knife is a beast for it’s size. It feels solid and hefty in the hand. To date it has performed flawlessly at any task from slicing to chopping and holds an edge extremely well. A MOLLE attachment would have been nice but you can easily modify the sheath or purchase an SDS MOLLE adaptor from a military surplus dealer.
