Did a mock up.
Since KA-BAR has a new marking laser, does this mean we can expect to see the BK2's of the future to have a full flat grind? Perhaps I'll do a mock up.
EDIT: Did a mock up.
BK2 with FFG. Grind can go back closer to the handle:
I'm basing my question on what Uncle E had to say here: http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/sh...0#post10609180

interesting...I could go for a FFG 2! I like the looks of the mockup, gives the ol reliable an all new look for Sure!
I wonder what this would do to the weight of the blade and the spine strength. If they offered both, it'd be a really hard choice.
Hmm I think that for the 2 I'd like to keep all that extra steel. now on a 9 or 7 that may be something.
I dunno. It'd be great as an option, but I kinda prefer having that extra shoulder when batonning, it takes a lot of the pressure off the edge. I for one will be keeping my rollstamped, standard 7 for a while.
I see this as a new beginning for the Becker family's drop point branch, if you have an FFG 2, 11, and 16, then they are all gonna be great at bushcraft, and probably baton through stuff easier, so you essentially get a small (11), medium (16), and a large (2), now, that being said, people are going to want to carry them as a set, so that means people like Skystorm will get busy on custom sheaths and new production sheaths. Now the only thing that's missing is a drop point FFG sword for those that like slicing watermelons in mid air while camping.
But honestly, people are gonna start raiding the Ka-Bar factory if every Becker starts getting laser etched, I know I will!
can you mock up a 7 and 9 full flat dubz?
I dunno, but that BK2 FFG is sexy looking
I would buy one. I love some FFG goodness...
If you look at the eariler BK 2 's BlackJack/Effingham they don't have that roll stamp on them, it's kind of an acid or laser ecthing, it sands right off. I don't think those old 2's are saber/flats. I'm gonna go have a better look.
Looks like all generations have that Saber grind on them, so Im presuming thats how the beard wanted it. I'd try one out if they were available though, I'm slutty like that.
I like the ramp so if your inclined could you do one with the ramp?
