    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.

    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...

    Don't find fault, find a remedy.

    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.
