    New member with a Becker


    ADVERTISEMENT
    My name is Paden and I love my knives. I have been messing with knives since I was 6 and a year or so ago I got a Becker bk3 as a gift from my step dad. Recently I started to modify it. It is still in progress. I am new to the picture posting so I hope this works

    Welcome to the forum. Stay here much longer, and you'll own the rest of them.

    Nice start 3+11...

    Now you just need a 4 for some chopping a 2 just for the sake of it a 7 for stabby stabby action a 14 so you know the alternative handle of the 11, you will also need a 9 for more choppy and stabby togheter, well you will also need a good cooking knife so get the 5, your brother also needs a knife so get a 15, theres the 12 if you need to survive just in case, ah don't forget the 16 for bushcrafting

    All that and you left out the sexiest Becker. The mighty BK17!

    Thank you. I have ground down the serrations to try to make a thinner portion for feather sticking while keeping the rest of the blade for chopping. There is also another mod I have been thinking about that I haven't seen done to any of the beckers that I am going to try.
