Full description

The KA-BAR BK62 Kephart is a modern version of the classic Kephart bushcraft knife, designed by Ethan Becker of Becker Knife & Tool. Becker fans call the BK62 the 'Beckhart'. This model is based on one of the original Kephart knives from over 100 years ago. These knives were forged by hand. Many modern versions of the Kephart model are based on one original knife that is now on display in a museum. Becker, however, managed to find an original knife that hadn't been sharpened hundreds of times. Closer to the original shape. The BK62 is your chance to get even closer to the original knife.

The blade is made from stonewashed 1095-carbon steel. It is not corrosion-resistant, just like the original. It's very easy to sharpen. The 'swedge' on the spine of the tip is a real eye catcher. Even better is the way the tang of the blade (the part in the handle) tapers. This reduces the total weight which makes the KA-BAR BK62 Kephart easy to use. The tang is surrounded by a walnut wood handle. Very ergonomic in all its simplicity. Even without looking you know how you need to hold the handle.

What makes the Beckhart really remarkable is the thin grind of the blade. As such it works efficiently. The scales are attached with firm bolts.

The KA-BAR BK62 comes with a solid leather sheath in which the knife is properly secured.

Decided to treat myself and am really happy I did. Was not sure I would use it much as I have quite a few go to knives for bushcraft, but after a couple of times of using the Kephart it's my go to. It feels great in the hand and has amazing balance. It came sharp and really keeps is sharpness well. It's point is perfect for everything fine and detailed and I still feel confident processing wood with it too.
