    Super nice handles on your 7 @Creaky Bones

    Another vote for the BK7 here, just to mess with the "9" boys :p You'll loose too many calories dragging all that steel over the island.

    If you get tired swinging a niner, I think it's time to start lifting weights, haha.

    I bet there's not that much of a weight difference. I gotta look.

    This makes me a little tired, but not the 9:

    9 or 4.

    Only owned a 4 ever, but a longer choppier 2 sounds nice

    I like my rendering of a BK9, with a BK2 front end:

    I would be tempted to say one of my 5's and 15s are my most used ... but if I'm being truthful to be dropped on an island with only one ... it would have to be the king ... 9 FTW.

    I moved them to my 5. My 7 has micarta now. I use the 5 in the kitchen all the time so I pimped it out with the Tommythewho scales :)

    For some reason it makes it look thicker too. Like a 9” bk2. Id still prefer the bk9 though. Its a great do all knife. The other beckers all do one thing better than the 9 but the one or two chores that they may excel at, the bk9 makes up for being better at everything else.

    How thick would you make that?

    Same as the BK9, aka .188 inches.

    That'd be legit.
    Would you bring the saber grind up higher?

    BK21 for my one and only Becker. I simply find it to be the most versatile blade for a “what if” scenario. It definitely handles the large blade chores and can handle the small stuff too.

    I'd use the same profile as the 9 does. Works well.

    Gotta go with the 9 here. There's a reason it's called The King. Or many reasons!

    Can baton firewood, make tinder curls, and be a hunting tool and defensive weapon. My choice for certain.

    I would.
    The 9 grind works well on the 3/16" stock, but I'd FFG that BeastK-2.
