This knife is a great size to carry daily, and I have no problem concealing it. The bottle opener works great. I have taken it camping and used it to make feather sticks as well as remove from bark from a sweet gum sapling for a skewer. I also used it for splitting down (small) cedar logs for kindling. It remained shaving sharp those normal camp tasks. I have also done a few different 550 para cord wraps on the handle, and it feels great in hand when wrapped. As a collector of knives (ranging from $20 to $400+) this is one of my smarter purchases.
[I have added a customer image to show an example of how to set it up for neck carry.]
The Becker Necker is just right for daily carry. It is small enough to be a neck knife, yet big enough to be worth a damn. I wear XL gloves and it fits nicely into my hand, especially with my trigger finger along the spine, my most common grip. I guess if you have huge hands or thick fingers, it might not feel right. The steel takes a sharp edge. The edge needs to be oiled occasionally to prevent corrosion from dulling it. The sheath is very secure and can be carried whatever way you prefer: neck, belt, boot or kit. Some report that it is hard to get out of the sheath, but I haven't had any problems. The blade has a good belly for its length, so it will be a good skinner. This knife is too light for chopping and I don't think I'd use it as a pry bar. I wrapped my Necker's handle with gutted para-cord. If you routinely use it for messy stuff like skinning, I'd skip the wrapping. I've had no occasion to use the bottle opener yet, but that function is like a garter belt under a prom dress... it is sexy just knowing it is there.
I've found this knife equally at home on the farm, in the field and in the kitchen. It's a minimalist approach to an everyday fixed blade and it works. In this category I like the Bill Moran Spyderco fixed blade better for it's ergonomic cushioned handle, but one could think of the Becker as a slimmed down version of that famous Moran for half the price.
Even after being batoned through a dozen one inch pieces of hickory kindling the little Becker had no problem doing kitchen prep work after just a few strokes on a pocket hone. Like all 1095 knives it sharpens up very easily. The finish will come off with hard use over time, but it's surprisingly tough. Recommended.
