    All production models, and as many non production as you can find/afford.





    Seriously!!!

    I'd say a 9, 2, and 14 would cover anyone well. They also represent the spirit of the Becker line well. If you want Ethan's dream knife, then add the 16 to the mix, though I personally prefer the 15 in that series.

    I watched a Youtbube video...I can get it done!

    From what I can tell from seeing and reading all the threads a BK9,2,11,14, and I guess #1

    I agree with MWTIC. You gotta get them all.

    But if you're set on only five Beckers, then I'd say a 2 is a must, since that seems to be the gateway Becker for most people. Follow that with a 14, since the Eskabar seems to be the second favorite gateway Becker. A 9 you have to get; they don't call it the King for nothing. A 16 or 17 is also a must. The 17 is crazy popular among Beckerheads, and for good reason. The fifth? Well, I'll leave the fifth choice up to you. My choice is the 5; it's just about my favorite Becker. But my Machax has proven to be a damned useful blade as well. And I love the 15, it's like a 5, but tinier.

    Nope, MWTIC was right. Get them all. I can't pick just five.

    I agree with 9, 2, 14/11. I would throw a 16/17 into that mix for my personal preference.

    That is about what Ethan says. The 2,9, &14/11 ar all you really need. With those three you can do anything!

    That's a hard list, I think...

    2 - obviously...
    9 - obviously...

    15/16/17 - Tweener of your choice... I went with the 16... but I'm considering trading it for a 17... 16 is too similar to my ESEE 4 and without factory micarta... I prefer the 4. Similar size clip point would be nice.
    11/14 - One of these should probably be a requirement. I don't have one yet, but I'm quite interested in the 11 w/ micarta. I just don't like that with the micarta it's the same price as a 7 or 9.

    4 - Maybe... It's a really cool blade... but I like the 9 better. Still haven't been convinced to sell or trade it yet though.
    and/or
    5 - Probably... I don't have one yet... but I'm quite interested. Looks like a great blade.
    and/or
    12 - Definitely one of my favorites. It sucks that it doesn't get the recognition that it deserves since it's more expensive... not Ka-Bar produced... and sold exclusively through KW. A really great blade.

    1 - Honorable mention... I'm VERY interested in this... but I won't count it since it's out of production. I have heard that it's making a comeback... and if that is the case, I will be one of the first in line for this monster.

    We're running a special this month. You only need any ten.




    Five essentials?
    My money's on the 2, 9, 14, 16 and a wild card of your choosing.

    2, 5, 9, 11, 16

    Anyone who tells you different is obviously high on micarta dust and paint stripper.

    Although, a 4, 7, 10, 14, 15 combo should serve anyone just fine.

    And there's the always popular 1, 3, 6, 13, 17.

    Hmmm...

    Need? Heck, you can get by with three.

    2, 9, 14

    But if you want to have five, I say add a 5 and a 16 or 17 to that and you will have all the knife you will ever need.
