    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.

    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.

    +1 to Smithy, they all appear to have the hard sheath. I've got the BK3 and I badly want the 2, 9, and 11 as well. If anyone knows of a better source than Amazon, let me know. Ready to buy.

    Side note, this beauty was pretty enough to get me to email Mr. Ralph:

    Anyone want to hazard a guess at the cost? Truly a piece of art, priced accordingly.

    Don't think I've posted this one yet.

    This is Pat Crawford's "Casper" as a presentation model. The blade and bolsters are stainless damascus and the handle scales are mammoth tooth:

    This pic is as much "photochop" as photograph. I've owned the knife for quite some time but could never find an appropriate background for an image. Finally, one day I decided to search the net for something suitable and cut out the knife from a photo I took of it against a white paper background.

    That is why this place is so cool, that thing is fucking ugly as hell, to ME :deal :poser
    But we all have different taste and it is nice to see something outside my taste range, diversity we haz it :lol2
    Saw these in SF on union street in a little fancy Italian gift store

    the store behind the blunt tip is apparently there was a ban on knifes with sharp tips, so folks just snapped off the tip, but then became a design thing. No clue how true that is.
    Sweet cow horn handles though IMHO :lol2

    Ah, I remember that model. I think it's a Model 68 -made in L.A. It was a popular low-cost (by Balisong standards) production knife. Even the rivets weren't filed on those. Came in both the weehawk and tanto blade.

    I used to work knife shows for Balisong back around that time. When I say "work" I mean standing in a booth at knife shows flipping butterfly knives all day long. Back then there were a few good gun and knife shows in the L.A. area and Les De Asis would pay us to sell knives directly to the public. I ended up with a decent collection of knives such as yours, but also a beautiful handmade custom by Jody Sampson, who was working for Bali at the time. I remember Les and his wife Roberta as really nice people. Then these knives became illegal to sell in CA and Les moved his operation to Oregon and changed the name of the company to Benchmade. Those were some good times back then. I'll dig up the Sampson knife and post it here.

    Those are much more my taste as well. . . . .
    I was just thinking we need some balance in the form of well used carbon opinels and such. . .
