    Default Dave Beck Pic Thread -post em if ya got em

    A knife maker who doesn't get a lot of recognition for his work, as most of his stuff is put in vaults and safes.

    If you got some of his work , post up some pics! If you know the backdrop of the blades that makes them even more interesting.

    Action Pics are also welcome.

    Here is a Beck WSK 010 The Hunted Model:
    NON-tapered Tang
    hollow grind
    Up-to-date Differential Heat treat:
    wolverine Sheath

    Beck made this specific model off the original designed Tracker but with his up-to-date heat treat . Making it pretty rare.


    From Dave,
    Thanks for your inquiry & also for your great find. The knife you have is actually a model "C" Gen1 Tracker/WSK. This is the old version that I actually began making in 1991 & also was the same version of my model "C" that was used for "The Hunted" movie. The old ones differed very slightly in contouring from one year to the next as this model went through a lot of "tweaking" over the years but basically this the same although the older ones were all stamped with the TRACKER trademark on the side in big letters & were heat treated differently. I made over 500 of the older knives until I had stopped producing them around 1999. When I brought this version back is was because there were many who wanted an exact copy of the knife used in the movie. This newer release, (which is designated by the prefix "H" before the ser#) indicates that it's not only an exact copy of the movie knife but also comes with the much improved selective heat treatment that offers much better performance & strength than the older ones. These were offered up through last year but then discontinued because they were replaced with the Gen2 version.


    Yes this a Safe Queen;

    Here is my Beck WSK user
    Tapered tang
    flat grind
    up-to-date differential heat treat
    standard sheath

    My first tapered tang blade, I didn't know how much I would like it. Dave explained to me, his new, redesigned WSK with now a flat grind is his best work. I concur. makes it weight-forward without causing hot spots for fine work.

    Lets see some Becks, new, old, used, or one-offs.

    It's a Bush Pilot #3 they aren't listed on his website anymore so I'm not sure if he still makes them.
