I'm not sure if This mod has been done, I haven't seen it yet, but I basically took my favorite Becker, and made it even Better! The Five was my first Becker, I wanted a second almost as soon as I got my first....it's That Good! I love Ethan's scales, but I've noticed after chopping for long periods of time that the grip is a bit small for me. I've seen people sand, and open up the grips a bit, but I went a different route.... The Five isn't much of a Choppy thing, so I wasn't worried about sacrificing that aspect of that, but surprisingly, with this much different hand positioning it Still feels pretty good, as I Whack it into stumps... What I really was going after was more packability....and easier to conceal. I have a sheath, but I believe I will probably make a more streamlined version, that I'm known for someday soon. I'm still in the concept stage, I'll sand and contour the handle More, and definitely make it a bit prettier, but I really wanted to share my idea. Let me know what you think? I personally Highly recommend doing it, if you have a few spares. It Totally changes the knife, and I'll be using it a Ton More!
