In the market of durable, all in one blades, two knives stand out for their ergonomic design and versatile use. In a show down of Becker BK2 vs Schrade SCHF9, the competition is stiff. Created to be an ideal companion for camping, hunting, or backpacking, these survival knives have been designed as tough, jack of all trades blades that negate the necessity for carrying separate knives for fine cutting and chopping.
Built out of 1095 high carbon steel, Ethan Becker’s BK2 and schade’s “ Extreme Survival” SCHF9 both carry a fine edge and resist corrosion. But they also suffer the same weakness of needing to be kept dry to avoid rusting. Expert suggest regular wiping with pure mineral oil to keep the blades well maintained. But this ensures that neither knife can be carried along in wet camping conditions. (See also: Becker Bk7 Vs Schrade SCHF9)
At exactly 12 inches, the SCHF9 is a couple of inches longer than the BK2. At almost the same weight, this makes the BK2 the tougher of the two blades. With a full tang design, neither knife is vulnerable to damage through regular impact however, the BK2 does come a head as the better blade when faced with tasks like splitting or chopping wood.

The knives also come with similar drop point composition, with the edges converging at the tip in way that keeps the point from busting due to overuse. And again, the BK2 seems to be the better knife at tactical functions like piercing. When you consider the fact that the SCHF9 doesn’t come with an exposed pommel like BK2, you see that Becker’s survival knife again wins by being better at cracking nuts and grinding stones. The one thing that SCHF9 can beat the BK2 in is the affordable price, and as an extremely useful blade it is certainly worth considering. While in our comparison of Becker BK2 vs Schrade SCHF9, the BK2 is the clear winner, we commend Schrade for coming up with such a beautiful design at such an eye catching price.
