Becker Knives fork carving competition
The Beckerheads over on BladeForums are holding a fork carving contest. The top three prizes are Becker knives!
The fork must be carved using a Becker knife, so I'm using my BK11, aka the Becker Necker. I'm learning that it's a good knife with a nice thin blade suitable for carving but it could use some more comfortable scales. Occasionally the finger guard gets in the way of a good grip, but overall it's an excellent knife for the task. Also, my cord wrapping skills need improvement. The orange 550 cord I wrapped keeps coming loose.
This is my fork so far. I'll post again when it's all done.
