    Ok, so I’ve heard some wild stories on the KABAR forum and elsewhere touting the strength of KABAR’s classic USMC knives. Not to be outdone, I thought I would ask y’all if you had any stories about incredible/crazy things you’ve done with your Becker knives. Thoughts?

    So MUCH destruction! You can’t not buy a Becker after seeing that. I bet Ethan got a real kick out of seeing that.
    Kudos to BRab for putting that together and to Ethan for designing a knife that can eat a lawn mower for breakfast, cinder blocks for lunch, and a stove for dinner.

    That really backs up the "field dress a Buick" statement. :D

    There was a thread where Moose (and maybe Ethan) gave the local fire department a bk3 and they actually did that. Although it may have been a Plymouth or Dodge.

    That was Moose’s idea and it was a Dodge Omni.... I was there as an observer and it was Really, Really cool..... I certainly do not recommend this in the field....It kinda upsets the guys in Olean and Truly, in normal use, you are gonna be OK......And please remember the place to be as kind as you can to your equipment is in the field.... The further afield you are the less likely you will be able to get backup.... the inter webs are full of test to destruction vids...... Fun to watch and sometimes dangerous to emulate........ Practice your skills..... be safe ..... have fun....be safe...

    Was https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/bk3-spotlight-part-2.828544/ it? I also wanted to see some stories in this thread, as well as mass destruction (obviously not destroying the Beckers because they don’t break!)!

    Simply beautiful video. That’s the thread that got me interested in the BK3. My finances haven’t let me get one yet... :/ I’m watching for that awesome BK3 giveaway that probably won’t ever happen! :p

    define "crazy"...BKs here have been used for a lot of things, ranging from the absurd to the essential.

    My definitional requirements are whatever YOU consider to be the most outrageous feat that you’ve done! ;)
