    Default Becker Brute- Spa Day

    After a number of years trying to get a Becker Brute, I was finally able to trade for one. It came to me with some coating missing and a average edge. After some gel stripper and some TLC with a Scotch pad or two, the Brute came out nicely. Now this beast is not for carving out a netting needle or spoon, but I tell you, it will chop some wood! An nice action video is going to get done this weekend. Now I have a Becker for field stripping a Buick and one for an M-1 tank! Thanks for looking!11207281_774301852677046_6676476716899147976_n.jpg009.jpg003.jpg007.jpg002.jpg009.jpg

    Nice brute! Was it designed for use in a shield wall?

    It does seem to be similar to a short sword, so a shield wall would be appropriate. lol
    Weighs in at 2 lbs without the micarta scales. I was bashing some wood with it today and simply broke the wood with the hammer head on the spine. The several different grinds on this is amazing, the only 2 areas that reach full quarter inch thickness are at the Ricasso and the hammer head. Very unusual for a mass produced blade.

    Nice man. I really like my Brute.

    When I got her:

    I like it too, but would opt for my BK9, or BK4 every time. The Brute does baton well. It chops okay, but not near as good as the 9, or 4.

    Agreed on all points. I have the BK9 and 4 as well, my field choice would be the BK9. Nice collection of blades you have there!

    Brutus Rules!

    Smile and grin at the change all around me. Pick up my guitar and play
    Just like yesterday. And I'll get on my knees and pray
    We don't get fooled again. Don't get fooled again"
