    (Late) Mornin' Jim. As always, I love getting notified of new posts to this thread. The one I got this morning may have been the first since a year or thereabouts. Had a horrendous surgery in Jan., the recovery for which is just now coming to an end. Not sure what I might've gotten from you...

    I spent many of my youthful years as a silversmith. I've never done chasing, chiseling, texturing or stamping on steel or Ti, but I've done many of the same kinds of design features in silver as this knife displays. Not only can I not fathom how such fine detail might be cut or stamped into...

    Oh man, now I gotta get me a new keyboard. I just drooled all over the old one and ruined it. Glad as heck to see you back in my inbox, Mr. Cooper. Such a delight to be notified that you've posted something(s) new. Just unbelievable work all the way around. Blues

    Beckerhead Music

    When I opened a thread that was titled "Beckerhead Music," I thought I might find a bunch of fellow musicians' recordings in here. Believe me, I've made much dumber mistakes. But seein' as how I was all geared up for sharing some of my own music, I figured I'd go ahead anyway. The video needs a...

    New colour BK handles?

    "Ass mop." Funny, but nonetheless true, stuff. I followed that "mop." I looked the day before it ended and no one had purchased a single one. Not sure what happened the next day. I left early for a long ride on the scooter and didn't get back 'til late, at which time I hit the rack as hard as...

    School me on the BK4

    HA! The only difference I reckon, is that I got windier from the back end during my absence. Strange that the ol' lady now can't wait for me to get back out in the woods! Might be another couple of years a'fore I check back in. One never knows. Just stopped by over the weekend and saw a thread...

    School me on the BK4

    I have both the BK4 and BK21. Both of 'em are sharp. Both of 'em cut stuff. Both of 'em have curved and/or recurved blades. Both of 'em have a sweet-spot at the apex (or thereabouts) of their respective curvature for chopping. Both of their sweet-spots become readily apparent after just a few...

    Diez Knives Picture thread (picture heavy)

    Hey Brother JD - I am still working on moving my Photobucket archive to another hosting site. Started maybe three months ago, right after I saw the price tag for the "upgrade." It's a PITA to go through hundreds (in my case, at least a couple thousand) of images no matter how many images you're...

    Show off your favorite sheaths for your Beckers!

    I happen to be the guy who bought JD's (710) very first sale-offered sheath for the freshly-minted BK4, Beckerhead Edition Machax several years back, and it's still one of my faves. My most-recent sheath-purchase is also a 710 offering for my Camillus BK9. This is also "one" of my faves. JD...

    Additions to this thread and the thread you just linked to take my breath away, Jim. Thanks so much for all you do for this site, the knife industry, and most of all, for those of us who so appreciate the craftsmanship and artistry, but would never be close enough to such works but for your...

    What folders are the Beckerheads carrying?

    HA! Right you are. Been a long time since I've bought either a CRKT or a Kershaw. Totally spaced that one out. Thanks for the condolences and the correction. Blues

    My new house! Just a few pictures for now...

    Wow Nick, congratulations. Looks awesome. By "back 9" do you mean it's 9 acres? Looks nice whatever size it is.

    What folders are the Beckerheads carrying?

    Mostly carrying fixed blades these days, but since I had to go out to CA for my last aunt's funeral, I broke out a couple of folders to take with me. Carried both of 'em while out there. Wouldn't be surprised if either/or were illegal out there now, but I wasn't goin' out to go out on the town...

    The BK4 Fatwood Harvest!

    Y'all are talkin' not far from where Ethan hangs his hat. I never made it up there and don't know exactly where it is, but I do know the general vicinity. The first nine years in this state, we lived in Cullman, bravo, not far from the Sipsey Wilderness. Spent many a week all through...

    Post your Becker knives pics here

    Thanks Dubz. Don't think he's still makin' 'em, UK. Go ahead and check, but I'm pretty sure he more or less had his fill of it after pushin' pretty hard for several months to get some interest goin' without much luck. Blues

    The BK4 Fatwood Harvest!

    Hey 91bravo, don't think we've "met." I'm Blues, glad to meet ya. Great thread. I'm guessing you're up in North Alabama? We moved from Madison a couple of years ago now down to ~20 miles outside of Dothan. Six miles to the GA state line from our place, and about 15 miles to FL. My wife's an...

    All of 'em are beyond phenomenal as usual, but I couldn't help but notice that this one looks like Kurt Sutter should've commissioned one each of these for the club cast of Sons of Anarchy as an end-of-series gift. (For those who may not know, the club's logo was a variant of the Grim Reaper...

    Post your Becker knives pics here

    Well, the 710 sheath arrived this morning. It and another knife I bought off the Exchange caught the same truck out of Montgomery and rode the rest of the way down here to Dead Cell Holler together, so my new EDC (a Benchmade Saddle Mountain Skinner fixed blade) and the new sheath for my EFC...

    Post your Becker knives pics here

    Just got my first peek at my new 710 sheath for my BK-9. Will take some glamor-shots with my own stripped and polished knife when it gets here, but thought I'd share some sheath porn while I'm waitin'. You'll notice something new from JD on this one. I asked for a loop or some other idea of...
