    Word of mouth for me. All I see is Becker this Becker that on this forum. I had to check it out. I ended up buying 2 bK 10's and look forward to getting more.

    Wow, I would like to offer my thanks to all of you. From me and Ethan.

    I started doing what I do here, for Ethan and BKT, spreading the word by mouth, internet, and in person.
    It seems to be working. I really want BKT to he a household name, and recognized on sight. My next goal, BKT in the movies. Its a slow process, but it is moving forward.

    I got into Beckers cause my Ex got me one after she found them online, I think the internet is the best place to spread the word.

    I have gotten almost 15 messages on YouTube from people saying that they got Becker knives after seeing my mod videos.

    Def word-of-mouth in my case, dont recall seeing any Becker items before last year but I had heard the name BK&T. After google-researching Bush/"Survival" knives, Becker came up...and Kept coming up. Review and test after review and test...and I didnt hear anything negative.


    The good online "Rep" of BK&T and the very reasonable pricepoints are what sealed the deal for me.

    My introduction is the same as thrillbilly. I had never heard of BK&T but of course knew of KA-BAR but never owned one.

    I had heard of BK&T from Tactical Knives or maybe Fighting Knives, (remember that one?) but never liked the looks of them in the magazine becasue the handle looked too big. Met Ethan on the way to my first BLADE show at Brigade Quartermaster and talked with him for a little bit. Nice fellow. I still hadn't bought any Beckers though until I kept hearing about them on the ESEE forum due to what appeared to me at least to be good natured kidding back and forth between the two. So if my Junglas is a bit heavy, now I have a BK9 to take. Two knives from two great companies.

    I first learned about Beckers from a friend about 2 years ago. He walked up to me one night and asked if I had ever heard of something called a BK-2. I said no, went home to check it out and its been downhill ever since.

That sparked me getting more into knives than I was already and that brought me here.

    I first came across Becker knives, well the BK9 to be exact, on the Blog of a fellow Bushcraft forum member.
    Then in a mention in a book and thereafter various Y-T vids.
    Once I discovered this place I did a fair bit of lurking here, gathering info .

    There's nowhere anywhere near me that sells Beckers so I had no actual hands on before buying. I took a kind of leap of faith, so to speak, that certainly proved a good one .

    I thought people bought them because of all the cool colors. Black and metal gray.

    I agree 100% the simplistic greatness of these knives is the key.
