Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

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!

Here's another way you used to be able to get the Sharpfinger. These sets were really popular.........

For now I have valued them at $75 apiece or $150 for the set.  If they had come with COA and boxes I would have valued them higher.

John,

Those look absolutely gorgeous, good job!

Charles,

What replacement value did you figure for your set?

Sharpfinger Scrimshaw;

The Scrimshaw art for the 1977 Sharpfinger pattern (155SC) was an eagle with a banner proclaiming “LIBERTY” and “JUSTICE” on the mark side and a drawing of the ship “MAYFLOWER” on the reverse..
The Scrimshaw art for the 1978 Sharpfinger pattern (155SC) was a brown bear walking left to right. The artwork on the reverse side was deleted and replaced by a small panel for the owner's initials.
There was no Scrimshaw art for the 1979 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) as it was replaced temporarily with the SC501 drop point 145 pattern. 
The scrimshaw art for the 1980 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a bust of a pronghorn antelope.
The scrimshaw art for the 1981 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a ram.
The scrimshaw art for the 1982 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a cougar
The scrimshaw art for the 1983 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a brown bear

The scrimshaw art for the 1988 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a pheasant
The scrimshaw art for the 1989 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a coon hunt
The scrimshaw art for the 1990 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a mare and foal
The scrimshaw art for the 1991 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a hunter
The scrimshaw art for the 1992 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a bighorn sheep
The scrimshaw art for the 1993 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a deer

The scrimshaw art for the 1997 Sharpfinger pattern (502SC) was a deer

Look at this cool one.......

Old ad........

Since I received mine in 1997 and that design does not appear to be a standard one, could mine be more rare?

The ones I listed are for the regular Schrade yearly Scrimshaws. They also made TONS of special production Scrimshaws over the years.....tons. So many in fact, it's hard to keep up with, like Victorinox Classics with advertising. Generally speaking the only way it would be worth more than a slight bit more than a regular one, would be to a person that has a big Schrade Scrimshaw collection, and wants yours very badly.....or to a person that collects special production ones. Actually it's probably worth more to you since you worked for TVA.

Thanks for the info.  I am still pretty much a rank amateur at knife collecting.  I know very little about the various companies and what they made.

Have this one

Charles, this is the place you need to be! What one can't answer, another will!

Max, that's a nice one! 

A better reason why to up the replacement value. Don't you think?

Well, yes and no. Sometimes rare doesn't mean valuable. I'd say it should be worth a bit more, but not a lot more. If I still had my big Scharde collection, I would have been willing to go a bit above the regular Scrimshaws. Maybe five or ten dollars. But like I said, if a person has a huge Scrimshaw collector and tey are a "completionist", then they might be willing to pay a good bit more.
