    Coming this Spring - KA-BAR Becker BK40 Folder

    Yep. Made in America is great but not a requirement. Taiwan is ok. China though - not a chance in hell.

    PM3 - I bent my pocket clip...

    I removed it and bent it back in shape. Works like a champ. Thanks folks!

    PM3 - I bent my pocket clip...

    I know I can remove it and squeeze it back into shape with a pair of pliers but if you folks have a better suggestion, I'm all ears. One thing I like about the stock clip on that knife if that it doesn't get in the way when I'm using the knife but I'm very open to suggestions.

    What folders are the Beckerheads carrying?

    Buck 110 Slim Select. It's good quality, tough, American made and reasonably priced - the sort of thing I'd look for in a folding Becker.

    Blades & Bourbon

    Smoke Wagon - nice. Had an outstanding smoked old fashioned at The Griffin in Vegas pre-covid panic.

    Convince me that Becker isn't crap

    Yeah - that thread title is pretty combative but your actual posts aren't. Lol. Have you contacted Kabar? It could be that you got one with a bogus grind out heat treat or something. Bet they would help you out.

    Your Favorite Buck Fidget Knife?

    I like my 110 slim select better but I play with my sprint select like it's my job.

    What is the best EDC knife under $50?

    Buck 110 Slim Select get another vote. It's rock solid, exceedingly useable made in America and way under your budget. If you want a flipper that's just as good and right at your price point, look at the Buck Sprint Select.

    Off Topic Not even a snark-wide pandemic can keep us down...

    Right there with you. Nope. I've recently remembered how much I like Buck's American made folders - there are a number of worthy variants of the 110 and the 112 and the Sprint is a cool flipper, etc. I guess it's cool that it's still convenient to pocket carry the BK 11 or 14.

    Coming this Spring - KA-BAR Becker BK40 Folder

    We all like Becker knives or we wouldn't be here. Most of us have purchased a bunch of Ethan's reasonably priced, American made tools that last for generations. Neither the steel choice nor the locking mechanism seem up to Becker standards but I could get past both. Made in China though? Does...
