A Los-Angeles based publication that covers equipment and scenarios related to emergency situations, reviewed the UKW Survivor in a recent issue.  This is what they had to say:

Utah Knife Works owner Mark Russon says that almost 40 years ago, his father, Robb Russon, came up with the design for what would eventually become known as the Tom Brown Tracker knife (which appears in the 2003 film The Hunted) but never got credit for it.  So the younger Russon gave his Dad's model a 21st century makeover and renamed it the Tracker Survivor.  While we don't have the space here to investigate further, we did get a chance to review his new knife.  Each section of it serves a survival purpose.  For example, the spine's saw-teeth are for sawing or notching branches, while the utility hook is for processing game.  Made of 9Cr18MoV stainless steel with a glass-reinforced nylon handle, the UKW Survivor is a jack-of-all-trades tool that'll win over some bushcrafters ...and maybe even a few Tom Brown fans too.

Jeff Goldstein of PWtactical, an online outdoor equipment outlet, unboxes the Survivor knife and gives his first impressions.

We look forward to more info from Jeff as he gets a chance to put the knife to practical use!
