Well first off thanks to all the people in the forum that suggested the Becker BK2. I got mine in the male today, and i have to say. You guys said it was a tank, and i was expecting a really awesome knife. This thing blows away those expectations. This knife is insane. I couldnt be happier.

Just remember to tighten those handle screws regularly or put some loctite on them so you don't drop them. Great knife by the way, love mine.

Just wondering, do any current/previous BK2 owners think the knife is too thick?

I've been debating the last few months on what new knife to buy and I'm having trouble on settling somewhere between 1/4" and 1/8" blade thickness. It seems everyone loves the BK2 and it's indestructibility but I'm just wondering how 'practical' it is. Does it really pay to have a 5.5" blade that's a 1/4" thick? I've almost pulled the trigger several times on this knife. Perhaps some further insight will help...

Unless you plan to pry up manhole covers or chop with it the blade thickness is overkill.It is way to thick to process meat or a number of lighter chores.It's very cool if thats your thing though.

It is perfect if you want a knife that chops like a small hatchet but still cuts like a knife. You can clean fish with it, prepare a meal, build stuff etc (been there done that). If one knife is all I could bring I would take the Becker Bk2, no doubt. It is, however, heavy and if you intend to bring a hatchet you can leave it at home to save weight and bring a smaller knife instead.

^^^^This. The Black anondized screws start to rust after a while. I also replace the plastic grips with micarta scales on all my Becker knives.

I have other knives than the Becker, but they cannot do everything like the bk2. I use, apart from the bk2, a combination of knives depending on what I intend to do.
I use for example:

A fällkniven F1 + a hatchet for camping (being outdoors for more than a week)
A Leuku/puukko double knife + Leatherman core for fishing trips (not intending to spend a night outdoors)
A Sissipuukko + a Victorinox Forester for berry picking, hunting (not intending to spend a night outdoors)

Yes, but on the plus side; the rust keeps the screws in place.

OMGoodness the first nine or so posts in this thread were

I think the title of this thread is ideal: "Blown away"
