    How is this any different from the Tom brown tracker ?

    • Justin says:

      It’s nearly double the size and after speaking with EJ at blade show, he informed me he had never seen a TB tracker before he designed this.

        I call bullshit on never seeing a TB tracker, anyone who is remotely interested in knives has seen them before.

        • Mac says:

          Or seen The Hunted

          • Justin says:

            I’m just telling you what the man said. Idk maybe he hadn’t seen it. Either way it is different from a TB tracker. Like I said it’s almost twice the size. But yes the cutting edge profile is almost identical.

          No True Knife Fancier, eh?

    Regardless of the background and knowledge of the collaborator, since TOPS produced the Tom Brown Tracker knives associated with the release of the movie “The Hunted”, they should be VERY familiar with the original source of this blade design and geometry.

    That said, I would go nowhere else other than David Beck himself if I wanted another tracker/WSK style knife.
