The KA-BAR BK2 Becker Campanion, also known sometimes as the easier to remember Becker Companion, really lives up to its name: bring this bad boy along with you on your next hunting or camping trip, and you'll be calling it your BFF in no time.
It starts with the versatile 5.5-inch drop point blade made of 1095 Cro-Van steel. This is an alloy that's easy to sharpen and performs well at outdoors tasks. Black coating gives extra protection against the elements.
Its well-balanced Grivory handle maintains your grip stability as you put this knife to work skinning wild game, slicing meat, and chopping down small trees.
Like a reliable camping buddy, this knife doesn't need a whole lot of maintenance: it's rust-resistant and needs minimal sharpening and touch-ups. Includes a custom glass-filled nylon sheath.
This knife truly lives up to the KA-BAR and Becker Knife & Tool names.

Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.
Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.
He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was 'k a bar'. The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.
