    I know a few of us have them and I for one am more than happy with each and every one of them that I own , 4 to date . I'd like to share the two that I specifically asked him to build for a set . My Tracker and it's companion knife that I just took delivery of this evening .

    They don't quite match simply because the companion knife is only a few hours old and the wooden scales haven't had a chance to get skin oils and dirt ground in yet . But as you can can see she is sharp .

    Let's see your creations by Caleb if you don't mind sharing .

    No I didn't it's a Caleb cox. One is on permanent pass around within the tracker pack. I'm almost done with the second. Then it will go out as well. Yeah I have two lol it's a cool blade

    That companion blade is rad. Good fit with a tracker. I've got his original iteration of the Tracker from the movie, it's a great blade.

    I have 4 of his blades. All Seax. Great person - great craftsman. I only have pics of 3 knives. Just bought another one (bigger than these 3) off of him that I haven't taken a pic of yet. I'll try to get it up soon!
    Caleb is deserving of a thread like this.

    I'm in. This tracker is surprisingly light, but still can do some chopping.

    I briefly owned a small tracker that was damascus but never used it because it was too small and pretty. I keep telling myself I dont need to try a Tracker knife then I see trackers by @Caleb Cox and convince myself I really want one anyways lol

    Caleb Cox Cukri ;)

    I have recently began thinking about a tracker, I used to think of them as gimmicky movie knives. I started looking at the trackers threads and watching a few YouTube vids.
    I will definitely be looking towards Caleb due to the quality / cost ratio!

    She’s a bit bigger but still just as cute. Hopefully she turns into a good woods buddy.

    Not mine, sadly, but this is my favorite of Caleb's models to date:

    Dont judge! :18:
    I'm thinking...
    OAL - 18"
    GRIP - 8"
    CHOPPER - 6"
    RECESSED - 4"
    THICKNESS - 1/4"

    That should handle batoning, chopping, feathersticks... and occasionally shifting the earth's mantle! :eek::D

    Just curious...

    I wonder what a Caleb Cox rendering of a huri huri would look like...

    I'm guessing a Fred Flintsone version of a spetsnaz shovel!

    And that's the best thing I've noticed about dealing with @Caleb Cox for my hard earned coin . I get a perfectly functional tool to my specs without taking a second mortgage lol , but no seriously . I've ordered two to date and both have been spot on with the rudimentary sketches and measurements I provided .

    Being able to do various feats to/with the Earth's mantel is a very valuable aspect . It was a major selling point when I purchased the "Primitive Tracker" . Without those capabilities what good is it as a tool :18: ?

    Caleb makes an outstanding knife. I bought this one off the exchange and so glad I did. So impressed that I asked him to build me something special. This guy does AMAZING work. Highly, highly recommended.

    I always wanted this knife, but never thought I'd see someone make a reproduction of it. Well, I guess I lucked out because Caleb made one.

    Here's a little stick-splitting action from a paddleboat :D I don't have a sheath yet, so I've been carrying it in the box. It's also handy for holding a stick upright :dblthumb:
