Ka-Bar Becker BK22 Companion Knife Review
The Ka-Bar Becker BK22 Companion knife is lightweight and features a durable, 1095 cro-van steel blade, perfect for splitting kindling, skinning game, or chopping onions for the campfire grill. The BK22 is an absolute BEAST! Great for handling just about anything you could ask from a solid everyday carry survival knife, including batoning wood. The edge that comes on the blade is shaving sharp out of the box, the handle is one of the most comfortable you will come across, and the sheath is versatile yet durable.

The blade is 1/4 of an inch thick which makes the entire knife feel sturdy and very hefty in your hand. It is very sharp and heavy. The blade is also cover with a powder coating to protect it. The blade is high quality and keeps its edge even after cutting and chopping wood.
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 BK22 is definitely more for brute jobs like chopping wood, cutting thick plastic, or anything you could use with a hatchet.
The Ka-Bar Becker BK22 sheath is well made and an improvement over the original BK2 sheath. It has better clips to secure your knife. It also has a nice Velcro belt strap and compartment. It stays securely on your belt. I ended up putting my leather-man into the Velcro compartment which fit perfectly.
Handle and Tongue
The handle feels awesome in the hand. It is made of Grivory which is a heavy-duty polymer that will withstand some abuse. The blade and tongue are well balanced. This knife has a large tongue that is bolted to the handle. Which makes it very secure and strong. The butt of the blade is quite large and very effective.
