The black-coated blade is made from 1095 Cro-Van steel, which is a carbon steel that’s easy to sharpen and very tough.

Here’s a good look at how the knife performs from gideonstactical on YouTube:

Its handle scales are comfortable and removable, so you can put your own stamp on this large camp knife with different handle scales. But if you keep the standard handle scales, you won’t be disappointed.

Coming in at an overall length of 13.5 inches, the Becker Magnum Camp comes with a heavy-duty polyester sheath that’s MOLLE compatible. It even has a slot for the BK13 Becker Remora.
