Andy, in a nut shell Tom Brown designed the Tracker. Had Dave Beck custom make them for him. "Production" was too slow, so to cash in on the movie knife craze, Brown went with TOPS to make them. Ruin them I mean. TOPS Trackers are a POS. Dave Beck Trackers are SWEEET! TOPS did a cease and desist oder on Beck so now he does not make the exact knife. Do a web search for Dave Beck knives and follow the saga around the forums. I doubt TOPS would give you much trouble about making one or two (dozen) Heck we even had some in a kith awhile back. Of course we NT's did the primative versions made in the campfire...hahaha. I am sure Dave Beck could care less if you made them.
