    Gotta luv the "Old School" Sharpfinger, Over the years I have picked up a few, the old ones are getting hard to find. I have a few of the Camilus also.

    I love your Schrade scrimshaw collection ! Especially the last pic that shows the whaling action. I live in an area that was the Whaling capitol of the world back in the old days. Am sure you know that scrimshaw was a common pastime with whalers while at sea.That drop point shrade in the top of the first pic is very cool too. What number is it ? Good stuff.
    thanks for posting,

    Thanks Mike, I don't really collect the knifes, I just happen to have a few, I received my first Sharpfinger many years ago as a gift, I spend a lot of time in the field & it is my opinion it is the best knife around (bar none) for this purpose. When they went out of business I started to purchase them when I seen them, I find them in the darnest of places, The NRA commemorative I purchased at a garage sale, the box was wrapped never opened, the same with the "Old Grand Dad" still in the box in a hardware store in Northern Wi. keep you eyes open, they turn up once in a while. yes, drop points are nice, & harder to find then the sharpfinger, as to the number? I went and looked it is 01127. (number is for the Whaler, the Drop Point has no number

    "Old Grand Dad"

    I picked this up a few months ago at a local gun shop for about $12 as an every day carry knife.

    Got that same one for Christmas. Can't beat it for the price, it's comfortable, at least in my hand, and has a sharp blade out the box.

    Also some of you were discussing sharpening etc.

    When I was younger I dabbled in wood carving and learned of using "Aluminum Oxide Powder" on top of a leather strop. I would suggest using it for your final step in the sharpening process, it will help eliminate all the prior scratches from whatever method your using to sharpen with. If you get good, it'll be like a polished razor's edge. The kind the makes you feel like its pulling your skin into it and back crawl.
    Here's a pic of mine.

    I want to get a self protection knife for my wife. She was pick pocketed while traveling overseas, and although not attacked, it opened our eyes that she needs some type of protection. Sprays are illegal in some states and tough to travel with. If she checks her bags, she can take the knife when she travels, which is a lot.

    Needs to be something that is sizeable enough to be seen if she pulls it, easy to access and easy to deploy. She's only 5'2 and has small hands. She travels mostly in business attire, so it would be kept in her purse or jacket pocket.

    take a look at the CRKT Shenanigan .Very light ,good grip ,flips out very fast & smooth ,Not too big for her to carry but big enough to get the job done. The Kershaw Cryo might be good too .It is smaller ,assisted open,but heavier than this Shenanigan I will post a pic of that too.
