    My 1000th post is quickly coming up so with the help of some fellow BeckerHeads I have planned a pretty cool giveaway. The giveaway part will come when this BK2 is finished and back in my hands so I can put everything together for the winner.

    First off... awhile back I bought this BK2 in the exchange here. It was "modified" a little. And by that I mean it looked like it got into a fight with a dremel and lost! I think the original owner used a dremel to strip some of the coating. I basically bought it just for the micarta it came with. Fast forward a few months and I still had this ugly BK2 sitting in my drawer doing absolutely nothing. So I took out my files and started working it over. What I came up with was more of a clip point, rounded the pommel a bit and made a little choil like thing (its more flat then a usual choil). The balance on this knife feels very good now! It feels more like a bushcraft knife but its still got its 1/4" heft.

    Knife in question...

    Oh how did that little 11 get in there? Oh well I guess that will be getting franked/given away too...

    Now here is where the fellow BeckerHeads come in...

    -Clich will be doing his famous blue/bleach etch
    -SleepyBadger will be doing his awesome filework
    -EDCTAC will be hooking it up with some sweet custom scales
    -1066vik is making a bushcraft style sheath!!!

    Last but not least... the GIVEAWAY! These franked Beckers will be given away in typical BKT giveaway fasion, BUT with a twist! I will not tell you the whole twist just yet but it will require a donation to a certain foundation for veterans. Donations must be at least $5.

    So thats it! It is already on its way to clich as I type this. Clich if you want to send it to SleepyBadger next that would be awesome. I will cover shipping to and from all of you guys. THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Clich, SleepyBadger and EDCTAC, 1066vik. You guys rock!

    It should be pretty sweet. I will make a new thread when its time for the giveaway. I will try to make the donation part as simple as possible with links to their site and direct links to their donation page.

    Oh also, the 11 has a little file work on it too. Clich,Sleep,EDC, you guys just use your imagination on that one, do whatever you want! However, if we want it to be able to ride in the same sheath as the 2, maybe we should leave it with no scales or at least slim scales? This all depends on if I can find a willing sheath maker too!

    I'm gonna have to get in on this one for sure. I'm hoping it wounded warriors cuz I've been thinking of donating something to them for a while once i had some 'spare' money. This will give me the excuse I need to finally do it. Of course any and all Vet charities are well worth it.

    You are correct with this statement. There are so many to choose from, but I have one picked already :)

    I can't enter because I don't have money, if I did I would probably drop most of it with a vet charity, with or without this incentive, but I think this is THE most generous contest I have seen since I started stalking BFC, to the forum members and outside parties. Subscribed for drooling.

    Can't wait! Btw since you get it first you are not limited just to the etch. You can mod anything. That's why edc and the sheath are last.

    L4NE4, nice idea for the knife and a great idea for the "entrance fee".

    Will you be creating another thread for the giveaway once the work is done? Or should entries be done in this thread?
