    Default has anyone modded a knife to a tracker?

    I was wondering if any one has made a tracker style knife by modding another knife?

    If so how and did you like the end results?

    WIP. I'm currently working on a Gerber paraframe to minitracker folder. Tough with 4 small children finding time to take my time to do it right the first time around. The knife has a horrible secondary bevel.

    I found an old clever at a yard sale and thought about cutting a tracker style out of it I was just wondering if anyone had done this before?

    I think some of the Condor blades, especially the larger choppers would lend itself well to this task....I could see a tracker made from a Pack Golok or even a Village Parang and ending up with one HECK of a knife....

    For sure check out the tracker action thread lots of great homemade trackers.

    Here is one I made out of a condor hudson bay knife. Its a little light for chopping compared to a tops T-1 but I like it. One of my favorite all around woods knives.

    Check out the member Tomjones posts. He makes some really wicked wsk/tracker knives out of all kinds of things.

    good luck with your project

    I've been wanting to do that for a while, I just haven't found the cleaver yet. I'm looking for an old one specifically because I figure the carbon content will be higher. Unfortunately, pickings around here a very slim.
