    You want jealousy, I was going to show you my one of a kind Lodestone pack when you were down here at the house.

    Many don't realize that Ethan used to be the President of CMI. AB4A164A-5BB1-4EFC-80B2-2E77A7D4C0AD.jpeg

    The BK 16 is my favorite fixed blade that I don't own. I've given away most of my esee's, so I guess I have a good excuse to get one. Unfortunately they don't show up on the buy and sell often. Its important to me to buy a used one so it looks like I've been outside and used it.

    Anybody know where I can get replacement handle bolts? the threading on my bk9 have mostly rusted out. one is missing.

    Except for the BK1 which was essentially a Froe, all of Ethan’s work is high performance for general campcraft.

    I still love the Becker/Fisk BK 5 for food and general field chores.

    If I remember correctly, Ethan didn't design the BK1 Brute. Mike Stewart did.

    Yep. I believe the baton/hammer was Ethan and of course the modified kukri was borrowed from one of Ethan’s pre 4 protos.

    Could be wrong. It has been a bit since he gave me a history tour.

    Check with @erik. He is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to hardware.

    Same here. Been awhile since Ethan and I talked about it. I need to give the ol boy a call.

    Ace hardware sells stainless screws: pretty sure you want #10-24 x 5/8" socket head screws, which take a 5/32" hex wrench - or 4mm if that has too much slop.

    Straight from the Becker Blade Database:

    Extremely popular question... From Toooj '''The Fasteners for the BK-2, 3, 7, 77, 9 are Socket Head Cap screws #10-24 x 5/8" L. The BK-11 Screws are #6-32 x 5/8" (Not positive on the length) Socket head Cap screws. You should be able to go to any hardware store and buy these'''

    From OREGON FAL'ER '''Screw sizes are 10/32 0r 10/24 x 5/8 for the big beckers and 8/32 x 1/2 for the shorts. '''

    DerekH adds '''but a Torx 20 works really well'''
