    It's a good one. I used mine to slice spruce bows off a tree like a laser. Unfortunately, mine was lent out, never to be returned.

    I have half an Elk rack that I found, which was thinking about slicing up for the P.B., but the knife is gone now, along with my Magnum Camp. Same guy.

    This is why you never loan knives to anybody

    Sure, its the Becker Brute. Its a discontinued model, but can sometimes be found on the exchange or on auction type websites.

    Yep, it's a cool Blade.......... if you can find one. BK-1 Brute.

    Here is a thread on mine that I'm working on.

    And here is a thread by The Warrior, and I believe he is the proud new owner of the brute in that picture.

    I got tired of the Brute and sent it to a guy in Illinois I believe. There might be a trade in the future when things change for him, if not, no big deal. If I gave away half my knives I'd still have more than I could use in one lifetime. I have ALWAYS been of two views. One is that I'd just like to have 3-4 knives and be done with it. The other side is blade lust. Different sides win at different times. The Brute has a few endearing qualities but not enough to justify the seeming aura or mystique surrounding it, IMHO. It is a very heavy blade............ Between the two I'd go Pot Belly in a heart beat. Great size, reasonable weight, and slices like a razor.

    Oh man , I just snapped the tip off my Potbelly , : (( Me and my kids were roasting marshmallows over the coals in our wood heater , Id grabbed my Potbelly as it was the closest capable tool to slice of some skewers from a hardwood log , I guess I forgot I was cradling the blade in my lap still and stood up , Potbelly clattered to the tiles , the tip just vanished somewhere. ARGGHHH How could I have been so STUUPID. Cant imagine it being covered by warrant either. esp here in OZ. Look after the Potbellys tip guys.
