When you hold and use one of their knives it's a VERY personal connection...or at least it is for me. It's just like when you kill a deer with a broadhead that you personally put the razor edge on.
I have a sheath knife that my Grandfather made as a kit when he was a child. It has a handle made from stacked discs of leather, with an end cap plate and a ring through it to lock it together. It is heavier than most knives, somewhat clumsy, and doesn't hold an edge long. Has a bottle opener hook at the finger guard of the blade. ....i'll have to dig it out and post a pic. I'd rather lose one of my good knives than this one.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
