Extrema Ratio MK2.1 Camp knife. I took the Extrema Ratio MK2.1 out for 2 weeks of solid testing in the wilds. Here are my results:
The Extrema Ratio MK2.1 is of course an ambitious project from Extrema Ratio of Italy to “remodel” if you like, the original USMC fighting Bowie from the Second World War (and of course models still available today from KBAR) using the excellent stainless tool steel, Bohler N690 Cobalt alloy. Glass fibre reinforced nylon replaces the stacked leather grip and 300 series stainless steel features in the other parts. The MK2.1 can be disassembled in the field if necessary without the aid of tools.
I’ve had my eye on the Extrema ratio MK2.1 knife for a long time (it’s not new from ER) and decided it needed a touch of BCT!
Having a flat butt end on the MK2.1 means being able to do push strokes with this blade, something which is very useful, as a cutting stroke.
Basically, the Extrema Ratio MK2.1 a great 7 inch camp knife, totally capable of some easy to serious tasks which could be encountered during a camping and hiking trip.

The Extrema Ratio MK2.1 is a solid performer as could be expected and yields itself well to outdoor adventure activities, such as camping and hiking. Maybe it’s right for you?
