"I have one Sharpfinger.  It is part of a matched pair that was my 10th anniversary award from TVA in 1997.  It is part of my collection, not a user."

"Jon, Your right.  This knife has the ability to be a go to for many many chores, both large and small.  I am pleased your wife decided she likes it also! Tell me why you just could not feel the love for the new version?"

My favorite knife...Sharpfinger

My must have blade for everyday occasion, would have to by my Schrade Old Timer 152OT Sharpfinger.  The size, shape, weight and feel of the blade is, in my opinion, as perfect as you can get.  The steel from which it was made takes a wicked edge and keeps it, and is also easy to bring back.  I picked my first one up back in the mid 1980's at Kmart, but can't remember what I paid.  Knowing me, it wasn't much.  I carried it for years, before it was relegated to truck duty, along side the 15OT…See More
