Good morning Beckerheads :)
Here is my first BK11 from a fews years back. It goes everywhere with me, the Ironwood handles are darkened from use, and it has a grapefruit patina. With solid 1/4” copper pins. I Love this little knife ❤️
Next im gonna fix up my old crooked edge on my wicked edge.
Ill post pics when I get it fixed up, buts it’s really sharp already and always makes me smile. I think this was my second set of I handles I ever did.
Have a great day!

Thanks for sharing, that blade looks great!

For some strange reason I haven’t picked one of these up yet.

It’s probably the most practical Becker to carry often, and ticks all the boxes of a fantastic fixed blade EDC.

Does anyone know if the grind is as thick as a Esee Izula 2? I’m hoping a bit thinner....
 
It seems thinner than an Izula2 but I have not measured it. It is slicey though, and stays sharp for a long time.
 
WOW, what a nice BK11, mine still has the coating and a para-cord wrap. Yours makes mine look feeble. Time I get started on mine, a strip and patina for sure and maybe some micarta scales.

I recall the BK14 being just a TAD thicker than the Izula...

But it is full height longer, before the belly / tip start, so that helps it be a good slicer with the FFG .

Put a convex edge on it with a sander / work sharp and look out!

Great for x-draw or pocket sheathing.

Thank You:)
That didn’t happen overnight, I stripped it first, and then I left it in my boat for a year. Lol. And then I gathered the materials for the handles, and they were one of my first sets, so it took me about six hours to put those handles together .
So take your time, and enjoy the project.
