Dave Beck knives
by: D. Elfreth

I am the lucky owner of two knives made by Dave in the early-mid 90s. I met Dave while taking classes at the old Tracker farm. Saw his B-4, fell in love with it, bought it, and still use it every week. It is superb. I had no concept of what really superior steel and workmanship were until I met Dave. He later made me a custom knife sometime around '96 - a longer version of the B-4, with a saw-tooth edge on top. Back then I was dirt-poor and couldn't afford his Tracker knife. I have recently handled the Tops version, and, as best as I can recall, it cannot compare with Dave's in handling, materials, and finish. Had I known ten years ago that Dave would no longer be the builder.....
Oh well - Hello, EBay.

PS In 1994, Dave first pointed me in the direction of Dixon's Muzzleloading shop in Kempton, PA. I have been there every year since for the annual gummakers fair. Thank you Dave.
