Our Rating


Perfectly designed to address the needs of those who hunt, camp or spend time in the outdoors, the Ka-Bar Becker BK2 offers users versatility whether it’s just to split out some kindling or to pry joints apart while skinning game. This hunting knife feels right at home whether it’s just for chopping onions or building the campfire. This heavy duty hunting knife will surely be your favorite go-everywhere companion if you love the outdoors.



Strong, solid build

Handle all your survival needs using this super strong and robust hunting knife that feels capable of handling all the survival needs you could have. Made in the USA, this knife delivers fantastic performance as can be seen by its appearance and feel in the hand. You are assured of reliable craftsmanship and the high quality materials used in its manufacture. It is made of 1095 Cro-Van steel, which is plain carbon steel that makes the tool easy to sharpen.

The fixed blade design ensures that the knife will not suddenly close on your finger, making the cutting implement a safer alternative to folding knives. Since no joint is present in the middle of the tool, you can be sure of a strong blade that can easily handle the stresses associated with slashing, chopping, etc. It also offers better leverage and greater force aside from being made of thicker stock, so you can deploy the knife faster. With no moving parts, you will need no lubricant. The blade makes the knife quite versatile as a cutting tool, hatchet and pry bar.

Ka-Bar Becker BK2 imageEasy handling

With a blade length of 5.25 inches, the Ka-Bar Becker BK2 is easy to manipulate during use. Lightweight at just 1 pound, this hunting knife has an overall length of 10.5 inches that ensures optimum handling. It has a flat grind tapering from the top of the blade on to the cutting edge for easy sharpening while being extremely sharp.

The Ultramid® handle is a type of high density Grivory plastic that may have been given glass reinforcement to make the component tough and nice looking with its smooth matte black finish. The full grip provides a sure and comfortable grip. The slightly textured handle is rigid and is tough enough to withstand dropping, beating and being thrown without showing scratches at all most of the time. The wide, rounded ergonomic curves of the handle create balance that makes the BK2 comfortable to use while the front rear guards are effective at keeping your hand safe from slipping off the knife.

The 100 percent synthetic blade ensures more than enough strength to handle every survival need of modern day hunting. The 20-degree edge angle has been designed to be sharp enough while being hardy enough to take lots of abuse. The hefty ¼-inch flat ground blade offers sustained resistance against stress. This knife offers exquisite grip and amazing forward balance that you’ll fall in love with right out of the box. It takes an edge quite effortlessly and keeps it longer, eliminating the need to do frequent sharpening.

The black non-reflective coating protects the knife steel fully except for the edge. You get a wide, thick and heavy blade with a full tang that runs the entire length of the knife through the handle, which is the strongest way to build a blade. The strong drop point makes the tip really tough, perfect for piercing, poking, and bushcraft tasks such as drilling. Toward the handle near the very end of the edge is the small choil or cutout that allows sharpening of the edge of the knife without running into the handle and also makes a great fire starter.



Comes with the necessary accessories

This impressive cutting tool ships to you with a MOLLE compatible hard plastic glass-filled nylon sheath made in Taiwan, which makes the tool safe and easy to carry. The sheath also ensures that the blade keeps sharp and won’t be damaged during transit. Best of all, more than any other accessory, the limited lifetime warranty the knife comes with serves as a distinct assurance of total quality and premium craftsmanship.
