I bought a Becker BK-9 for my "bug-out-bag" at least 10 years ago (I actually think it was more like 15 years, but they say memory is the first thing to go....I don't remember what the second thing is!). It ended up being used extensively for tasks ranging from processing wood in the field while camping/hunting and at home for the fireplace. A week didn't go by that I didn't use it for something. It's rare that two weeks goes by without using it even now that I've got a bunch more knives than I did back then.
I've always been a casual "collector" of knives, so shortly after getting the BK-9, I started searching on info for Beckers just to learn more about how and where they were made etc. At that time they were being made by Camillus. My search took me to Blade Forums (where the link about the BK-3 torture-test I posted goes to) where I found a whole sub-forum dedicated to Beckers. It's hard to participate there for any amount of time and not get kinda fanboi about the knives, especially with Ethan being there pretty often to answer any questions about design, blade-geometry, metallurgy, what have you, but the bottom line is that his knives just plain work, which is the main reason folks are "fans" of them. I own a ton of knives ("ton" might be literal in this instance) and don't view my Beckers as the "only" choice when I'm in the market for something new, but if they have something like what I'm looking for, I'll go with that without hesitation instead of shopping for hours. I don't own the whole line, and probably never will, but I do own more than one BK-9, BK-4, BK-2 and will eventually add another one of these BK-21s to the fold before all is said and done. I buy knives much more for using than "collecting" though, and duplicating (or more) of a specific design is more about placement between the house and out-buildings around my property than anything else.
If you are collecting per se, I suggest you start with older iterations of the Becker classic designs, the original Reinhardt/Becker Kukri being one of the "Holy Grails" of Becker collecting. I'm not positive, but I think the original was produced by Blackjack. There are forgeries out there, so be careful if older, discontinued models is what you end up going for.
Glad my post was of some use to you (or anyone else). Use that thing in good health.
