Thread: Post your Becker knives pics here

    From zero to four Beckers in just a few months.. I was originally planning to sell my first BK2 (the one that's now been stripper and polished) after I purchased the bk2 with grey micarta scales...but now that I've polished it, done some work on the scales and customized two sheaths for it, it's now my favorite Becker..

    Nice work. I like the firesteel idea. The micarta scales look sweet, some of the best I've seen...

    It's all good. I saw it several times, and ended up putting it on my modded BK2 sheath as well: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...ly-Photo-Heavy

    Thanks! Though the "firesteel idea" was all yours, brother...I obviously got the idea from your sheath modding thread. The cable clamps fit my firesteel perfectly.

    Good to see it worked out for ya. Really looks nice. BTW, what did you do to make the micarta look like that? Like I said, one of the best I've seen.

    I posted this in another thread where someone asked about them...

    I was originally hoping for grey or black but that doesn't seem possible with the Becker Micarta Scales. Light brown to dark brown is about the best that you can hope for...at least in my experience.

    Here's what I did..

    1. Black Rit Dye
    2. Sand
    3. Black Shoe Polish
    4. Sand
    5. Cherry wood stain
    6. Sand
    7. Black Mahagony wood stain
    8. Sand
    9. Another attempt with Black Rit Dye.
    10. Black permanent marker.
    11. A very light wet sand.
    12. More black Rit dye.

    DONE!!! So just repeat that process for the same results!! Lol.

    Hey rroger, where did you find those gray micarta handles? I'm trying to find several colors but only come across the standard set sold by Becker/ka-bar and I don't like the color of them very much. I did find teal on ebay but I'm noy a big teal fan either.

    Chestnut Ridge Knife Shop. They don't sell the scales separately though. You have to buy the BK2 with the micarta scales plus the kydex sheath as a package deal.
