Feels good in my hands and is made very solid.
Charles Chung
I do like the weight of the LMF2 but once I get this beast out in the woods, I'll be able to see which one I plan to use as my go to knife.
R. Burnthorn
Attached to the body of the sheath there is a removable nylon strapping for a snap, and a belt-carry loop.

I purchased this knife because I wanted an ergonomic survival knife that was both high quality and affordable. I got it delivered to me on a silver platter with this blade. A bolt of excitement will shoot up your spine the moment you grasp the handle and remove the cardboard shipping sheath from it and realize you're holding a tractable survival knife that is thicker than a pry bar. It is a serious hunk of metal at 1/4" thick - as thick as a Tom Brown Tracker or a Busse Ash-1 without costing as much as a Playstation 3.

Ethan Becker, the man who designed this knife, is a mountain climber, chef, and survivalist. He designed these same types of blades for the legendary but now defunct Camillus. Ka-bar was wise to ask him on board and he continues his basic approach - bringing people Busse-style ultra-thick high-quality steel fixed blades to those of us who don't want to shell out $450 for a used Ash-1 on Ebay or $275 for a Tom Brown Tracker. The Ka-Bar Becker BK2 Companion is easily in their league.

The Kydex shealth is excellent too - the knife snaps into it without even using the snap on belt and it's much tougher than leather and will not retain moisture. More lanyard holes than you could possibly need too.

I ordered my Becker Companion through Goliath and it came two days ahead of schedule. I cannot emphasize this knife enough. It is the survivalist's survival knife. It is not a short sword or a silly Rambo knife. You can baton through a piece of steel pipe and then go skin a rabbit or fillet fish or whittle an oak spear with this knife if you so choose. I think that sums it up pretty well. Indestructible yet tractable.

This is an awesome knife by Ethan Becker, available from KA-BAR. Great for handling just about anything you could ask from a solid everyday carry survival knife, including batoning wood. The edge that came on the blade was shaving sharp out of the box, the handle has one of the most comfortable I have come across, and the sheath is versatile yet durable. I can't speak highly enough about this work-horse of a knife that feels incredibly rugged in your hand.

The pricing here on Amazon is about as good as I have been able to find- I think I paid maybe a dollar or two less for mine from another website. Including shipping you should not spend more than $65 on this knife, which sets it even further apart as being an outstanding buy. If you do some research, you will quickly find that comparable knives go for at least $200.

Get the Bk2, you will not be disappointed.

There is SO much to say about the Ka-Bar BK2, but I'll try to keep this short, sweet and to the point... no promises

First off, I need to say that the pictures that they show of the knife on Amazon.com aren't 100% accurate for this knife. The picture that they show is of the BK2 first edition. The knife that you will receive if you order one is slightly different, but in a good way in my opinion. The bottom of the handle in the picture shows that the handle material and the bottom of the knife are flush together, when in reality the knife you will receive has an extended tang that sticks out of the bottom of the handle by about 1/3 to 1/2 of an inch; This allows for the knife to be used as a chisel.

The BK2 is an absolute BEAST! You can put this knife through just about any torture test and it'll come out ready to kick Chuck Norris' butt. The blade is 1/4 of an inch thick which makes the entire knife feel sturdy and VERY hefty in your hand. The knife isn't a light one, but for camping or any other place you may need to chop wood, this knife will blow the competition out of the water. The BK2 is definitely more for brute jobs like chopping wood, cutting thick plastic or anything you would need a hatchet for. You can also use this knife as a chisel because of the extended handle that I mentioned earlier.

The handle of the BK2 feels just as solid as the blade of the knife. The handle is made of grivory. Grivory is a very hard material which feels a lot like the love child if glass-filled nylon and aluminum had a baby. If you take the two halves of the handle apart, you have a fairly good sized space inside of the handle in which you could store some small survival items like some fishing line and a few hooks.

If you are looking for something light. Don't buy it. If you are looking for something that is rust-proof and requiring no blade maintenance, don't buy it. If you are looking for the sturdiest, most durable blade in a survival/camping knife, get this one. You can chop a 4" birch to the ground with this knife. Yet, you can get the thing as sharp as you want. It has no peer when it comes to the amount of abuse it can take. It is well worth the money. Get yourself one.

I'm not entirely sure how to do this knife justice within a five star rating system. It's very good for what it is, the question is what is it? As others have mentioned, it's a whopping quarter inch hunk of 1095 steel fashioned into a short brute of a knife shape. As near as I can tell, the knife itself is made in the USA, whereas other online sources indicate that the very well designed and executed sheath is made in Taiwan. The sheath itself deserves some commentary as I feel that it's easily worth maybe half the cost of the $63 knife/sheath system. The blade snaps solidly into the plastic sheath and the retention is good enough for inverted carry even without using the provided nylon grip snap retainer. The heavy duty sheath is also fully ambidextrous.

The plastic handle is retained by allen bolts with nuts and it's a good thing they're user tightenable, since the handle loosened up almost immediately with some batoning through hickory kindling. The blade is certainly robust enough for plenty of batoning through wood, yet at only 5.25" long, it's too short for batoning through much over about 3" wood or so. Yet, it's short length makes it relatively easy to carry on one's belt. When using it to whack and chop, I found it to be particularly bone jarring, and it's short length makes it a very inefficient chopper, even though it's quite heavy for it's size. I've seen comments to the effect that this would be a better knife with thinner micarta handle scales, and I agree, but at that point, it might well become as expensive as an Ontario Rat 5, which in my opinion, is an all around better knife for most purposes.

Some have said that the Campanion works as a kitchen knife.
