Here’s one man’s opinion of the Becker Magnum Camp Knife:
I have been collecting knives for years now, and I have a little bit of everything. I just got this knife in hand today, and I can say without a doubt that it is an instant favorite among many, many knives. After doing a little research on Bladeforums.com, I discovered that this design has been around for quite a while, and was a collaborative effort between Ethan Becker and ABS Mastersmith Jerry Fisk. This design (the BK5) has been produced by a couple different companies over the years, namely Blackjack and Camillus, and has just recently come back into production through KA-Bar. It also seems that there is somewhat of a following behind this knife, and I can see why. It succeeds on so many levels: It is ground from what looks like 3/16 stock and comes down to an EXTREMELY sharp edge. The thinner stock gives the knife a lighter, nimble feel in the hand, and also greatly improves it’s cutting ability while still feeling very sturdy. It has a very comfortable handle, and a nice acute point. The knife screams versatility, and in my opinion, would be just as suited for kitchen duty as it would a defensive role in a combat scenario. Just an all around GREAT blade, and one that I will be enjoying for some time to come. You can’t go wrong with this one.
