    Good Morning Together,

    today I decided to have my breakfast while taking a stroll in the forest near me...
    So I packed my bag and my BK17 and started the day at a small pond near my house:

    It is actually quite beautiful there:

    After the dry summer (it really was much too dry here) the little rain felt good and the air was beautifully clean. After the pond the way went up:

    small break to catch my breath:

    and up:

    ...to the top, where I had my breakfast:

    it was wet but not really cold, so quite enjoyable, even without a fire (still too dry, I wont risk a fire)...

    I don't know about this tree, but it gave me my idea for lunch:

    Lunch: It was roastbeef with drunken onions and potatosalad:

    Step one: Take your BK17 and chop up as much onions, as you want:

    Step two: Take a good whisky and pour it on the roasted onions:

    Then forget to take a picture of the steak...

    And then you have a wonderful lunch:)

    This is ot, but I'd love to have the BK17 in big (No, not the 7) so like 8"ish with 1/4" thick spine and the exact blade shape... I would love a knife like this...

    Yeah, just one more week of vacation and then the Real Life starts again. I'll find some use for my Beckers :)
    Is there a way to get a Beckerhead patch over to Germany?

    Beautiful area Wasty, thanks for sharing. Looks like a nice area to kick back and explore.

    What were all the stone structures in the middle of the forest for?

    You own a Becker, so if you have enough responses and threads you are elligeible for a Beckerheadnumber...
    I've got 245 and live in Oslo Norway.
    I:ve got t-shirts, caps and patches....
    Lots of patches,

    Hi, that was a former assembly place later used as a district court, dating back to the 6th century. :)

    Thanks for sharing your experience and knife.

    The BK17 was a model that I missed before they were discontinued.

    Looks like a great design that made your trip even more enjoyable!

    Dear Ethan,

    Thank you so much for the praise:)
    It is an honor and truly my pleasure to work with your knives, again and again these knives do exactly what you designed them for:
    They work for a living! :)

    I love moss as well, I do have a favourite place in the forest near me, I'll take a pic next time I head out and show it to you, as you'll understand:)

    I'll pop you an email and I will be extremely happy if you send me a patch!

    Thank you again for your dedication to your knives and their users, this is truly amazing
    :) :)

    I do hope there is more under your tree at Christmas than this...LOL.... I hope you enjoy... I will try to remember to get you a new patch when I am next in Tennessee... I snatched this one off a lawn ornament at the ranch... Thank you for reminding me that I need to do a new run of patches!... I am thinking that a variation on Knife Junkies patch would be good....
