Possibly one of the most popular fixed blades of modern times. Once upon a time if you wanted a Sharpfinger, it was Schrade, or no Sharpfinger at all!
Now since the demise of Schrade, a bunch of companies are making a "Sharpfinger"!
If you have never held a "Sharpfinger" in your hand you don't know what you're missing! It feels sooo perfect. Like an extension of your hand.........a Sharp-Finger!
If you have one, or some, lets see pictures and hear what you think of them!
Taylor-Schrade Old Timer stainless - The original Scharde made one was in carbon steel
Taylor-Schrade Schrade-Walden in bone!

Craig I have seen even more companies that make them, try a search on Amazon and they are everywhere! Somebody is trying to "make a market"
Hog, I think someone could have a pretty good collection of Sharpfingers! As far as I'm concerned, the design should have legend status! A great work knife, and TONS and TONS of deer dressed out with them!
Brad, that sounds like a great idea! I'd like to see that when you're done!
I scored a Vintage Schrade 152OT w/leather sheath for $45 shipped. I will still attempt my own creation.
Good going Brad. I wish I kept mine. My brother-in-law and I were knife dealers (The Knife Co.) back in the 80's and we sold a TON of Sharpfingers. I wish I had all of them to sell now! LOL!
Good work Brad. I am happy you will still do one of your own, let us see pics when you get the Schrade and of course as you go forward with your own
I have a hard time accepting Schrades made by Taylor........but.............I really like that bone handled Schrade-Walden. I'm tempted. Hmmm.........
Nice example and stamped New York Knife Co! That's a great stamp!
Yeah, those handles give it that "Frontiersman" look!
My newly arrived Vintage Sharpfinger. She was 5 passes on the Ceramic rods from razor sharp on delivery, gotta love 1095 Carbon steel. Sheath is in good condition, needs to be re-stitched but it is very supple.
As for crafting my own? I can't use the 3/32"(.094) 1095, it is too thin. The 152 Mic's out at .165(a hair shy of 11/64"), I'll see about using some 1/4" A2 or D2 stock I have laying about.
