    I don’t remember when I got my first BK2, probably 6 or 7 years ago. It spent the first few years of its life doing all the typical camping chores, wood processing, shelter building etc.
    However for the last several years it’s become a permanent resident among the tools on my workbench. When I first started making knives I used my bk2 to practise handle making so she ended up with some permanent green G10 scales and some badly misaligned pins. Then her luxurious life took a nose dive and she’s since been used and abused in every way imaginable. I’ve batoned through steel and other metals , I’ve smashed it into the concrete floor, it’s spent months buried outside amongst a pile of scrap leaf springs. It’s been chipped and sharpened more times than I can count and she still gets used almost everyday. I just got done cutting up some old sanding belts with it. My most used knife by far

    There is still a lot of life left in that knife. A bit of a cleanup and it can look great again.

    I could definitely clean it up, but I like the fact that it’s current appearance is a pretty accurate representation of its life so far haha ;)

    That's got some saggy tits and stretch marks type character to it. Daddy likes.

    That’s the old farm truck that’s been beat to hell, but still makes you smile when you hit the key and rev it up!
    Love it.
