You know you've done something right when your design becomes a standard that many other knife companies aim to mimic. The Schrade Old Timer 152OT Sharpfinger, which has become a generic term for knives in this style, is a fixed blade with an iconic upswept blade that makes the knife more than just a skinner.
Its 3.3-inch 7Cr17 high carbon stainless steel blade can easily skin game but also tackle everyday tasks.
The Old Timer Sharpfinger by Schrade has been an indispensable part of every hunting and fishing knife set since most of us were barely twinkles in our fathers' eyes. With its secure grip handle and rust-proof blade, this knife thrives in the tough conditions that hunters and fishermen routinely work in.
A lanyard hole near the butt of the handle gives additional security when using the knife in wet conditions.
Even though the 3.3-inch blade is smaller than some of the other hunting knives, this helped boost the popularity of the Sharpfinger. As large, unwieldy hunting knives fell out of favor, the Sharpfinger proved to be adaptable and multifaceted.
This 152OT uses the designs of the original Old Timer Sharpfinger to bring this classic knife back into the hands of hunters and casual knife users. You'll quickly see why the old hands at the bait shop have been yammering about this knife for years.
The knife also comes with a brown leather sheath that affixes to the belt for easy carry.
