    (I read somewhere on this forum that "clickbait" posts are frowned upon. Moderators - if you feel this is a clickbait post, please feel free to delete it.)

    My maternal grandparents lived in a rundown farmhouse for a good portion of their lives. When I was young, I remember seeing a wood carving that hung on a wall in that house. It was a "blessing board" - an old kitchen cutting board with a blessing carved into it. I'm glad I memorized the blessing, because the blessing board can never be removed from the house. It was left in the house when it was torn down and burned in the mid-1970's. This was the blessing...

    May your Beads and Book be worn.
    May your Knife and Wit be sharp.
    May your Cup and Pot be full.
    May your Love and Life be long.

    I never saw my grandparents with any knives other than large butcher knives in the kitchen and the garden. Never a pocket knife or even a paring knife. If there were any small knives around, they were broken, re-ground butcher knives. I have a feeling they would have appreciated my new BK9...

    I thought this blessing was a good introduction to my two new Beckers that arrived in mail on Friday...


    Pax et bonum fellow forum people...may your knives and wit be sharp...

    Love the saying. I have a plate that hung in my granny’s kitchen as long as I can remember (I’m 54) and it says “My kitchen is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy!”. Great, Great memories of her in that kitchen, she fed everybody that came by and because of her cooking.....a lot of people came by!!

    Unbeatable pair of knives you have there!

    Good combo for a two blade system, if you don't waste money getting micarta, get more knives.
    Keep the old handles in case you find the original ones are better for long term use as some say.
