You know you’ve done something right when your design becomes a standard that many other knife companies aim to mimic. That’s just one of the many reasons why the Old Timer Sharpfinger is the Badass Knife of the Week.
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.
First introduced in 1974, the Sharpfinger has the classic Old Timer sawcut handle slabs that offer a secure and comfortable grip.
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 baitshop 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.
