Botanical Science applied to the Art of Tracking.

No doubt I am a go getter in life, so I definitely love to submit to my Students and readers new materials in order to understand how the Art of Tracking works. Recently came the idea of showing the chemical and biological factors which affect the process of deterioration of a plant, trees, seeds and mushrooms involved in human and animal passage.

For this specific purpose I’ve developed an avantguardistic course, one of his kind, based on “BOTANICAL SCIENCE APPLIED TO THE ART OF TRACKING ©The Way of Tracking 2019″, in collaboration with Dr. Stefano Macchetta.

The course will take place in North West of Italy on June 20th, 2020. Then I will upload several specific material so.. stay in touch!

Addition to my Tracking Kit: custom knife.

The talented Knife and Sword Maker Alessandro Cosmai from AC Cosmai Blades honored me of this little custom beast that I nicely rename “Amarillo” due to the colors of the handle.

It greatly fits my needings to have a small blade at easy reach while on Tracking Training.



Total lenght: 19,5 cm – 7,6 in

Total blade lenght: 9,5 cm – 3,7 in

Total handle lenght: 9,5 cm – 3,7 in

Iron: N690co 3.5

Handle in stabilized Maple briar.




Workshop on Tracking at Pathfinder School – Dave Canterbury’s Basic Survival Class

On Day Three of Pathfinder School – Dave Canterbury’s Basic Survival Class  (in collaboration with Cimone Outdoor and Outdoor Tribe) I’ve had the priviledge of introducing the attendees to the Art of Tracking related to Search and Rescue needings & requirements. It was a deep honor to talk about the benefits of this Art among the other Survival Skills!

T.T.T. The Trackers tool



An idea I’ve got in mind since several months eventually came to life.
Many thanks to Andrea Prometheus  from Prometheus Bushcraft Equipment for the realization and thanks to Dave Canterbury for believing in it and giving these bracelets the name of  “T. T. T. – The Trackers Tool“.

T.T.T. is available here

And obviously thanks to Joe Price for modeling! More soon on Dave’s YouTube Channel.
