Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Boy I've wanted one of these for a long time. Finally took the plunge, picked up an '82 vintage and had the seller send it straight over to Ben at Baryonyx to raise the primary grind as I didn't feel like doing it LOL. Got to me today and I trimmed the wooden scales down flush with the tang and peened the copper rivets a little more to tighten the fit. Then I just sanded until smooth and oiled it with b l o. The reason I put the two in the same post is one for Becker content, LOL and also this is supposed to be the knife that inspired the bk2. In comparing it to the bk2 I think it would have been cool if the bk2 had been made to the same length and the same thickness but with a better grind. Don't get me wrong I love the 2 but I'm really digging this M.O.D.
