    That wrench knife, reminds me of a set of Snap~On steak knives that had wrench handles. I have a wood chisel blade that I torch welded a wrench handle onto, the wood handle coudna handle it. (pun intended) :confused:

    The wrench knife looks like a knife...…. I like it A lot.
    Idk why More knife manufactures don't make knifes that are knives....lol
    'bout time... Hopefully the trend of "boring" knives continues..... I'd love to see the trend go where Everyone is making French Trader knives....haha

    Also the catalog says the wrench knife is flat but In the video above they say hollow... so that bums me out.

    Well I really hope its flat, but it's not going to be a deal breaker is if hollow (especially for that price).

    I went ahead a put an order in for one bk18 & wrench. Tomars will probably have them for preorder any day now so ill order my seconds with them.

    Not sure how I sit on the Gunny knife yet. I thought about getting one, but I think I need to hold one first.

    I hope that sheath design catches on with the other Beckers.

    That would be a great sheath for a BK16. I'd buy another just for the sheath.

    Well, I haven't been on here for a while. BH 103 here. Imagine my surprise to see a BK&T harpoon ! I love the harpoon design. I bought a Tops Alaskan harpoon & also have 2 super cheap but super functional Gerber harpoon design knives. I will be picking up one of these ! Thanks Ethan !

    I like that the cutting edge is lower and gives more room for fingers :D The sheath looks like a big improvement . The harpoon spine , I don’t know yet o_O but that can be taken care of if found to be useless. Don’t know yet but it might turnout to be a good finger push feature ;)
