After a literal 40-year wait, the Utah Knife Works TRACKER knife is now available!  This is the knife pattern exactly as designed by Robb Russon, my father, in 1981, and has become probably the most-copied design in survival knives the world over.  This design is exactly as conceived as the first "Tracker" style knife, as it is known.  While there are many other versions available, this is the only true Tracker knife as it was first conceived.  


Designed as a "generalist" knife (made to do many things), the Tracker is intended as a survival or camp tool that will chop, split, slice, carve, saw or scrape.  While no knife can accomplish everything and do it well, the Tracker comes close.  Paired with a small folding knife or small-bladed hunting knife, the Tracker can be your primary tool for wilderness or camp use.
