Crappy cell phone pic of a bali song that I picked up while in the Army--sometime around 1986.

hey, they are both new, but the D2 is the sharpest blade I had. Way sharper than the 1095 from the BK14.

Knife steels

Worth the thinking about and reading...

From Wiki...

Find your steel.

Here is my humble beginnings into the world of knives, which happened after having a week off work in which I spent way to much time in this thread. Decided to start with some color.

Ka b

Do all BK2, 7, 9, 11 and 13 come with sheaths/cases? Have a hard time telling in Amazon.

Is there a better place to buy?

All Becker knives should, if bought new, come in a box with a sheath. At least that's how it was last time I saw some on the table.
