    I think if I didn't have a swamp rat ratweiler (thin cut), I would have the BK7 and would like it a lot. The ratweiler is still my favorite all-around blade, but I certainly enjoy some of the others as well.

    Well, I don't know if you can have too many Beckers... so certainly both will be a fine choice, eventually. I've always spied on the 10 as well, though I think it's more a looks thing than a practicality thing. I think if you like the handle shape, though, the BK10 should be a sweet knife. For me, the big Becker handle is nice on big knives but feels less suitable for smaller knives. The tweener handles though... nice.

    I don't want to put you off from the BK10, because I've never had one so I can't say how good/bad it is, but the BK62 is another superb choice in that size range. I think it's one of the best values out there, including the rest of the Becker line. I'm sure the wood handle don't cost a ton more than the plastic, but I like it a lot more than the standard plastic handles on the others.

    I'm always gladened when I see someone discover their first BK-9; "RIGHT ON!" to ya bikerector! :thumbsup:
    I have a metric ton of knives, from AKC's to ZT's and the BK-9 is my all time favorite! She's got a sublime symmetry that sets her apart from all the others IMO! :D

    I have to admit I own FAR too many knives I really admire, but have never used. I mean a bunch, like over 50.

    So when the time came to finally get a 9 - after reading so many great things here about them - I was smart enough to purchase a slightly used one, with the older smooth finish I preferred, and micarta handles already on it, which I wanted as well.

    That was a great move.

    Since the finish was slightly marred - used, but not abused at all - it gave me the freedom to use it like The King deserves, and wants. To be helpful!

    Which made me like it even more, as it is a great tool and a fine companion, my go to when I am brushhogging or just out and about in the woods. One is ready for just about anything with a 9 on their side.

    Thank you again, Uncle E!

    I will be honest the 9 had to grow on me. I was so in love with my 7. I didnt give the 9 a second thought honestly just purchased cause a I wanted a new blade. Didnt really like the lines the tip was more rounded than my 7 and I was comparing everything to my 7 until I went camping in the wood of sc and my uncle said bring that new knife let's give her a workout. So I brought the bk9 well impressed I was handled everything and to be honest the handle felt better in my hand after long term than my 7(camillus version). I came back from that trip with a new respect for the 9. It batonned wood not needed just did it to test it scaled fish broke ice did some digging and cut rope I did not need it we had tents but hey I was testing it out made a impromptu lean tu using the 9 to cut foliage and limbs. Worked great I now like my 9 but need to get another sheath for it. It sucks and I have replaced the small stainless blade that came with it with a sak

    I like the idea of replacing the remora with a SAK. I've been toying with the idea of replacing a lot of my piggyback setups with a trapper, SAK farmer, or similar. I got a new appreciation for the little SAK saws after using it for a few remodel projects over the winter/spring.

    BK9 is a nice high saber grind multi-tool that works for a living. Its on my short list to take for when got to pack as few as things when going wilderhooding.
