Does anyone have an image of the Dave Beck Pathfinder? I understand (and perhaps incorrectly) that he made this name after he made the Wilderness Survival Knife. I have sought everywhere on the web to find an image, but can't. Would really appreciate anyone's help.

I had one at one time. I also had a few pictures, but they went away when my old computer crashed. Think of it as an 8in long x 1/4 think Cleaver with a wide point, tapered tang and distal taper to the point. Very simple and very effective. He also made blade lengths in 6 inches as well.

Dave told me that he got the idea from a friend that showed him a bolo that originated from somewhere in Southeast Asia.

He then tweeked the design a bit and came up with the Pathfinder. He also said at that time it was a replacement to the original "tracker".

Thanks for the information Vermonster. I'm bummed that Dave Beck has disabled his website (although I can understand the reasons he did). I still wish there was a gallery of images for his blades (like badmojo for Busse Knives).
