this "knife" can do it all. it can carve, chop, split wood, be used as a drawing knife, notch, saw, and skin. it is the ultimate survival knife. i have used it minimally so to save the blade, but it does do everything it is supposed to. it is a well balanced knife and feels great in your hand. it comes with a kydex sheath but you can buy aftermarket leather ones. if you have seen the movie The Hunted with benecio del toro and tommy lee jones, the knife in that movie was based off of this one. this knife is big but when paired with the Tom Brown Scout (also reviewed on this site) they make a great survival team. here are the specs.
-Made from 1/4" 1095 High Carbon Alloy
-Coated in special black traction epoxy for rust proofing
-11.5" long overall length
-2.5" carving blade
-3.5" chopping blade
-Handles are gray micarta

Have had tis knife for some time now and if I had choice for trap building and small jobs, this is it. It cuts the small notches, preps fire wood and does everything I need it to do. No problems or worries since. The weight is just perfect for its purpose, worth every penny.

Nice to hear some positive comments about the Tom Brown Tracker knife! The heck with the hype and movie stuff, I have knives costing three times as much, but taking one knife into the wilderness, I'd grab the Tracker!

I too own one of these knives...There is a learning curve to using it but once you get the hang of it you will find that it will satisfy your needs.. I work with metal and have forged it for many years...The steel used in the Tracker sharpens easy and holds an edge..The shape of the blade takes practice to sharpen but once you learn how is no problem...The bottom line is if I only had one knife for use in the woods for survival this would be it...But who only carries one knife??? Hehe
