    I received this in the mail today from a member on here for some horse trading for some custom sheaths. I love it. Very nice looking knife. I can't wait to start using it.

    Enjoy, I love mine. There's almost nothing like it out there. Checkout Jerry Fisk, he was the designer of it with Ethan, the bk15 is its smaller brother and the knife I use everyday. The 15 is out of production, so I recommend trying to get one while you can.

    An excellent start to an ever growing collection! Then again, there is no Becker that wouldn't be a great start :D
    Enjoy that beast!

    Awesome! I love a patina!

    Now get that thing outta the kitchen and watch it work! I had a lot of fun recently clearing a hammock spot with the 5. Feels great on green limbs. Light and nimble, just flick right through it.

    Nice patina. I never had good luck with mustard Latinas myself, but that is nice. Well done!
