Hello all, You may have heard of Dave Beck, probably because of the Tracker/ WSK of The Hunted fame. I don't have one of his WSKs (yet), but I'm totally sold on his knife-making skills. In this write-up, I'll be focusing on the Forager... Here it is new: Specs: 5" Forager, O1 Steel 5/32 x 5" blade. 10-1/8" OAL. Flat saber-ground bevels & tapered tang. Carry wt. = 16oz with sheath Since getting it, I've used it a bit, first in the kitchen, then a bit outdoors on my in-laws property. Pics of a little wood carving to come. First, let me say that Dave is an awesome guy. Great correspondence, warm and friendly, and totally professional. I first bought his 6" Trail Dog SERE, and have had it and used it for about a year. Excellent outdoors knife--it can do it all and is an alternative to a WSK. And that led me to seek out more... my current collection of Dave's knives: The Forager is somewhere between the 6" Trail Dog and the couple Green Rivers, and is just about perfect as an all-arounder. I'll let the pics do the talking: The sheath is wet-formed, tough, and very comfortable vertical or horizontal (small of back): The ergos are truly perfect... Love the balance and tapered tang... Green linen micarta and outdoor glamour shot... Aaaaannnd, a little fun... it performs perfectly, throws sparks, stays sharp... So, I truly love it. It will be the knife I grab the most often--Dave's Forager hits a coveted sweet spot... medium size, not too thick, not too heavy, tough, holds an edge, versatile sheath. Dave told me that he'll be having a Forager and a few other blades available on his website sometime in Feb (besides the regular ordering procedures), and his WSK books should be opening soon. I'm definitely gunning for a WSK... maybe more of the others too. Thanks for looking!
