Go-To Every Day Utility Knife
I have been collecting knives since I was 8 years old. I am about 60 now. I have a lot of experience with knives from the military, survival training, camping, hunting, fishing, etc. The Becker Necker is my Go-To daily utility knife. Cro-Van 1095 is the best all round knife steel in my opinion. It is hard and tough, a difficult combination. It cuts well, holds an edge, but is easy to sharpen - another difficult combination. Kabar knows how to do a proper heat treat. The Becker Necker has a tough epoxy coating the protects it from rust. The knife is designed with a long curve at the tip which will work for slicing and skinning tasks very well. The drop point gives it a useful tip point. The edge has a straight portion that can perform whittling, fire stick making, and even batoning on smaller stock. Just a wonderful all round good design. Mr. Becker knows what he is doing.
