Thank you! I will start one whenever I get to patina a new BK.
Totally worth the flip and good fun while it lasted, it looked like a light saber first time I saw it.
I'm not going to do anything to it. All coatings will eventually wear off the way I use my knives!
With metal working, I often use a marking compound called DYKEM. It comes in the colors of blue, and red. Maybe more that I haven't used yet? It's pretty durable... Think of it as glorified "nail polish" haha. Alcohol is ok for removing it.
I had a bottle of red break/tear/explode on me at work, and it looked like a damn murder scene!
All over the workbench, staining the concrete floor, and a mill.
It would be Far more durable than paint...… Obviously Not food safe though.
Yes, I'm familiar with that metal marking fluid, I've seen mostly the bluish/purple color in the foundry industry. I won't ever used my big blades for food, so no worries there.
The red color is a real Rich, Deep, Red..... very pretty color. The epitome of the color Red.
You got me thinking now...… I might Need a Red Knife? haha
Do it! Hell, if yours looks good, I may try it! I'm always trying to make my stuff look "different".
I've been slow in posting here lately....
Focused a bit more on running in stead of hiking lately, so less Becker time for me.
Last weekend did a hike with my GF a we tested out our new folding cups from Sea to Summit.
Loved them, stable, no weird taste.
Ofcoarse my BK7 came along in its new Azwelke pants.
Mine, hope to play in the woods with them soon.
And forgot about these two.
Not exactly sure why, but lately I’ve been on a larger knife kick. I picked up an Ontario Rat 7 a while back and after some handle shaping it’s a really nice knife. I’ve had an unused BK7 in my shed for over a year. I grabbed it one day when Amazon had it marked down to $42, but at the time I was using knives in the 4-5” range and the 7 just didn’t fit the bill. I was going to sell it recently but the sale fell apart. The good news is I had to take the 7 out of the box to take pics, and when the buyer came back a couple of weeks later asking if I still had it I said yes, but it wasn’t for sale anymore. I decided to give it a chance. Today the 7 got dirty. It split up some kindling, made some feather sticks, and opened a 3lb package of bacon. I’m still not sure I want to belt carry a knife this size but I was definitely impressed. The 7 will go on the next few adventures, and it’s shed days are over.
The BK-7 is a good'n. It's the big knife to grab when you don't want to haul a REALLY big knife. :-D
de-ramped and choiled mine, and now it's super versatile. Being able to choke up on a big blade is important, IMO.
Like my 7:
Welcome to the forum. Your gonna fit right in I also like ugly trucks. And bacon I really like bacon
My go-to knife when I'm spending a night or two in the mountains
I like your storage container. If I buy anymore knives I'll have to go to something similar.
I ran out of extra Milwaukee bags
I thought we all had Box-O'-knifes ? lol
Obviously for User Knives.
We might need to start a New Thread for photographing (not our collections) but the Mass/Dump/Box of knives...haha
*I use milkcrates.
I love milk crates!!! A 20lb propane cylinder fits right in them. Keeps them from rolling around the bed of my truck
Yeah the more desirable knives are in the Milwaukee bags lol
I have a spare drawer that I keep a bunch in. Those that don't fit there live in my closet. My wife would probably prefer I used those shelves for clothes, but...priorities.
