Tracker type knife?

Post by OnePineTree » Tue Dec 17, 2019 11:03 pm

Forgive me, I’m not as savvy to some of the knives popular in this lifestyle. I’ve seen the trackers and everyone loves them. I’ve got no clue what the different edges are for.

Oh man. Trackers, you either lovem or hatem.
I don't own one but I have enough experience with them to understand how they work. There are others on the forum who may chime in that own them and add to the list.
Either way this should help.

1. Used for batoning mostly. Can be used as a draw knife. Angle is steep (depending on thickness of the blade).
2. Skinning. General camp chores. Carving. More for finesse work.
3. Not all have the saw back but that one is pretty obvious... sawing stuff and notches.
4. The prettiest feather sticks you've ever seen.

Appreciate it Jesse. I might have to find a “cheap” one to try out. It’s crazy, I can get better info and in a more brief format here than BCUSA. Lol. I enjoy BCUSA, I just wish this site had more activity to it, I prefer it more.

Yeah, this is the kind of dead time of year for us. Should be picking up soon.
As we start to plan next years outings.

I’m going off topic here, but oh well. You’ve got to get back to writing. Lol. You’ve saved me from boredom this morning.
