Note: this was made by David Beck who designed and built the knife used in "The Hunted". Dave makes awesome survival knives, he designed & crafted the knife used in the 2003 Paramount Pictures film starring Benicio Del Toro and Tommy Lee Jones.
Summary: this is Dave’s Trail Dog Variant of his Model G TRACKER / WSK Wilderness Survival knife, . This is Dave's long-bladed Tracker pattern, the selectively hardened and tempered blade was hand crafted from high carbon tool steel. Stamped by the maker, overall near mint condition with just a few light rubs.
MODEL G TRACKER,TRAIL DOG VARIANT: 3/16" x 7-1/4" blade, 12-3/4" Overall Length
This knife has a tapering tang, black linen micarta grips secured with 2-piece Loveless bolts, and lined lanyard hole. This is a kick ass knife that feels awesome in hand with the modified Trail Dog handle shape, plenty of chopping power. And, it’s a given that Dave’s WSK sawteeth are probably the best in the business and arguably the best ever.
The knife is paired to the original Beck-made molded black leather belt sheath. Right side carry, it can also be worn in the horizontal carry position. (behind the back) The sheath is extremely well made and in mint condition.
11 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. This is an original, unused WSK variant ready for field / survival use, perfect for the guy who wants an original Beck WSK for personal use. Long story short: there’s not many remote, untamed places on the planet you could go and not want this knife at your side. Thanks and good luck.
