    Later in the movie after del toro kills the first FBI guy he throws a black handled knife into the neck of FBI agent # 2.
    What kind of knife is that?? I like the style.

    I remember someone somewhere said it was a fallkniven, but I don't know which one specifically.

    Wrong knife timmy, he's talking about the small, black handled knife that gets stuck in the FBI guys neck. BTW, TOPS did not make the knife in the movie. David Beck did.

    Not sure what other knife you are talking about, but the TOPS Tom Brown Tracker was used in the movie The Hunted. The only other knives I remember are the homemade ones at the end.

    1st it was made by Ed Lombi, then Dave Beck, now TOPS

    The knife used in the movie was a custom made by David Beck. The TOPS knife was not used in the movie.

    Was it a custom version of the Tom Brown Tracker design?

    Yes. The knife in the movie was a version that Dave made for Tom (he designed it) for his Survival School. There was a whole big thing about it too. I don't want to get into it here. Do a search of the forum and you should find out alot about it.

    I think it is a Fallkniven Military Survival Knife,


    [​IMG]


    A list to clarify:

    Start of the movie: Beck made WSK, not TOPS, he loses that early on.

    Middle: He picks up the Fallkniven (I believe) with kydex, and the Next Generation Kabar with a custom kydex sheath from his trunk. The Fallkniven ends up in an FBI guys neck, and he doesn't get it back.

    End: He loses his Kabar after falling over the waterfall, and with powers unknown to us mortals, forges a knife without bellows or a hammer from driftwood (and somehow puts sawteeth on it :confused: ).


    This should clear up some confusion. Savage, the Fallkniven is a great knife for edc or light chores and you wouldn't regret buying it.

    Tom Kier and Rafael Kayanan, senior instructors in Sayoc Kali, were the fight coordiantors for the movie. They also post here as well. Maybe one of them will see this thread. Or try a search -- I think that Tom answered this question in the past.

    Here's their website for fight choreography:

    ..the best knife is still the one Benecio's character forges out of 'metal scrap-along river bank-while injured-in a driftwood kindling fire-while being chased by FBI SWAT Team-and TommyLeeJones character hot on his heels'Now that knife had character! ;)
