KA-BAR BK7 Becker Campanion Review

The BK7 becker knife is one of the greatest combat tactical knives, it offers a 7” Clip point 1095 Cro van Steel  Blade, the offers great edge retention, great toughness, and great wear resistance, it comes with a Grivory handle that offers toughness and a non-slippery grip, it has bottomed and top guards handle, it comes with a black nylon Kydex sheath.

This knife is the best pick if you’re looking for a “not too big” knife for your outdoor adventure, but let me remind you it has low corrosion resistance.

Now let’s speak about the knife, the good the bad and the ugly, the knife is just great for the tough tasks, the ergonomics are great, it feels light in the hand even tho being a 12.75” knife its easy to handle, the steel is hard and offers great edge retention but it comes with low corrosion resistance.

KA-BAR BK9 Becker Campanion Review

“Before I start this description, while reading you will see that both BK7 and BK9 are Identical, so yeah you will feel some repetition in my words” The BK9 Becker can be called as the BK7 Big brother, it’s a tactical combat knife with a 9” clip point 1095 Cro van Steel  Blade, the blade offers great edge retention, great toughness, and good wear resistance, it has a Grivory handle, comes with a bottom and upper handle guards.

This knife is simply a beast, It was built to be used in the extreme environment, batoning, cutting chops, and hammering are tasks that won’t damage your knife, but again let me remind you a lot of hardness equal less corrosion resistance.

Again the knife is easy to handle you can bring it to your outside adventure, while camping, or even hunting.

What are the Similarities KA-BAR BK7 Becker Campanion and KA-BAR BK9 Becker Campanion?

  1. Steel: they Both have the 1095 Cro van Steel that offers great edge retention, great wear resistance, and toughness, and comes with low corrosion resistance.
  2. Handle: they both come with the large and comfortable Zytel Handle, with both bottom and top handle guards.
  3. Sheath: They both come with Black Nylon with Kydex insert

KA-BAR BK2 Becker Campanion VS KA-BAR BK22 Becker Campanion – Some Key Differences

  1. Sheath: The main Key difference between BK2 and  BK22 is the sheath the BK2 comes with a Molded plastic Sheath, on the other hand, the BK22 has a Polyester Sheath, in my opinion, I always go for the Polyester sheath because it helps to keep an edge on your knife better than the plastic sheath.
  2. Blade Length: BK9 comes with 9” blade in the other hand BK7 comes with 7″


As you can see both knives are practically identical, they both have the same steel, same edge type, and same performance, the only difference is in the dimensions, therefore if you’re in a position to choose between the two, your choice will be based on the size, do you want the 9” blade or the 7” (the double cheez burger or the cheeseburger), but please make sure to take care of your knife whatever your choice, especially if you use it in a wet environment, other than that I hope I did bring some helpful pieces of information that might help you in your next purchase.
