    Looks like a great little worker.
    Thanks for sharing the history of its development.
    I have not used a harpoon style, so look forward to seeing how that works; like the wide blade profile.

    Oooh...I like it! I always love a knife that gives your knuckles some clearance when using it in the camp kitchen. That curve should make a for a nice and slicey experience.

    Look forward to getting one!

    Wonder which knife you got from Jim? I have a Street Barong and am just amazed at how well it cuts and how versatile it is.

    A new Becker knife, very nice addition to the tweener series, really like the blade shape and the slightly longer length. Gonna be a good seller I'd say, I know I'm getting at least two.

    That looks like it's gonna knock one of my 15's out of daily carry. Uncle E., that is damn sexy. Sheath with the slots looks excellent as well. Are the two long "bars" sticking out of the end for a MOLLE setup? Regardless, I am really looking forward to getting my hands on a couple of these.

    Thank you Ethan for this Harpoon style designed blade . It is really nice to see something new that is a departure from traditional styles that is VERY functional & ergonomic, at least IMHO. Great job ! I now see tan at bladehq & black at smkw, also great job ! So looking forward to them.....BH #103.

    Like I said to you in Las Vegas, the BK-15 and the BK-17 had a baby ... and they called it the BK-18 Harpoon!
    Despite the sentiment of the masses, I really appreciate the trailing point.
