    I was cruising a local flea market looking for some vintage cast iron skillets and spotted a Becker handle sticking out from a pile of kitchen utensils and crappy dollar store knives. I pulled out the knife and it was a really beat up saber grind 16! I stripped the remaining beat up factory coating. Took it to a bit of a satin finish, darkened the blade, popped some old micarta scales on it......and took it to my paper wheels......voila! New life and pretty dang sexy. Oh yea....and it was $7!!!

    Sweet find! I've picked up some good deals at thrift/garage sales over the years, but never knives. I did find a surefire E1e for $7 recently, though.
