I purchased my first Schrade "Old Timer" Sharpfinger in 1980. This was (and still is) the iconic knife on the belts of many hunters and campers in the woods of Northern Michigan. The knife is ergonomic in my hands and has the full tang through the handle. My Sharpfinger dressed many deer in its day. The blade is not hollow ground like Buck knife blades are. That makes it quick and easy to sharpen. I purchased a Buck 194 Alpha Hunter back in the late 1990s. It is a beautiful knife to look at, but it is a big job to clean after dressing out a deer! My old Sharpfinger was easy to clean after dressing and skinning because of it's streamlined shape and clean edges. Over the years, the blade has been stained in spots from the leather sheath, but it still keeps a razor sharp edge. The Sharpfinger's blade will dull quicker than a hollow ground edge, but quickly sharpens with a diamond sharpener, and keeps a sharp edge with an occasional stropping on leather. I wouldn't recommend it as a fillet knife; the blade is too thick and short.

The old leather sheath is no great shakes in quality, the leather is thin, but it still does the job well with good knife retention. In my opinion, this is the best hunting knife I've owned. I've been looking at purchasing another one and I was surprised at how affordable they are. Maybe because they're now made overseas; probably China.

This is a small skinner knife but good for many other uses. Its a full tang small fixed blade made out of 7CR17 stainless. The sheath has a good fit and holds it secure. The sheath quality is ok nothing to make you go wow but functional. It doesn't hold an edge for to long but sharpens fast. This knife is used by someone I know as an EDC. I only use it when hunting small game or fishing. Its a great little knife it used to be made in the USA a while back now its made in china. It has derlin handles very tough and with a good grip. Derlin was made by Dupont its resistant to weather and some chemicals its similar to Zytel. This is a good knife for a young scout or their first knife type of deal. You can come across it for under $20 very often.
