    Default Six Month Review- Becker BK-17

    After using this knife for half a year, I have to say it is a great field knife.



    I have used this knife for fire craft.



    I have beat it through many branches and saplings used for building shelters.



    It worked just fine for carving and fine work.





    I even beat it into a tree and stood on it for fun.



    There was not one task that I threw at this knife it did not handle. I would not hesitate to recommend this knife.

    Good show! I bought one of these for a Christmas present to myself, haven't had much time to get out and use it though. Plan on stripping & etching mine and doing the texture trick to the scales...

    It's nice to see just how much abuse the 17 can take. I love mine, which is one of my EDC knives, despite its relatively large size. Good video, IA.

    Or those five pound hams you call hands would have been smaller.
