I'm a 10-man too.
Unfortunately we are in a club that I wouldn't wish on anyone we lost our son in 1997 his birthday is 2/19 even 24 years later this morning a memory ran across my head and I had a really hard morning.[/IMG]
3 Beckers make my list,
First: the Camillus BK10 was my late father's and although NIB it lived in his SHTF locker on permanent standby. I bought it for him, and when I'd ask "Pop, why don't you take your Crewman out and put it to work?" He'd just say, "when its time to use it, it will be ready to use, and I know it will get the damn job done!"
Second: The BK9 gifted to me by a bladeforums member Jarodmichael https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/huge-huge-thanks-to-jarodmichael.853784/ After we had discussed where my life was at the time, even though he was stationed in Iraq away from his loved ones, he took the time and heart to send me an awesome BK9 to brighten my situation.
Third: My absolute dearest Becker is my Beckerhead BK10 from the forum event in 2011. Not because it was beautifully raw and un-coated, not because is has sexy micarta scales, not even because it shipped with "all the bells and whistles" (those who participated will understand), but because I was able to get 2-16 as my Beckerhead #, which is the birthday of the son I lost in 2009.
I’m sorry about your loss and wish you moments of peace and comfort.Unfortunately we are in a club that I wouldn't wish on anyone we lost our son in 1997 his birthday is 2/19 even 24 years later this morning a memory ran across my head and I had a really hard morning.
