I purchased my original Deerslayer back in 1980 at the sports dept. in the old Memco Department Store. I always loved this knife as it was second to none. After use I would clean it up and keep it in the original box. The original heavy leather sheath was hand rubbed with leather oil regularly and is still in perfect condition. I recently got the new China made version that is capable but nothing like the original USA made version, even the sheath in a much lighter, thinner and cheaper leather. It's the perfect bang around knife to use every day as my original one is now retired and kept in my gun case. The new Deerslayer though is still well worth the money.
I have a Schrade Old Timer Sharpfinger with a stag handle. I have had it about 20 years. For several years I raised rabbits and I always used my sharpfinger for skinning and cleaning them, it always did a great job. It is the perfect made knife for skinning and it stays very sharp. I would highly recommend the sharpfinger to anyone cleaning or skinning animals it is a great knife.
This was a great experience from start to finish. Jenna was so helpful and accommodating. My son loves his knife!!! Thank you
Bought as a gift which was well received. Recipient really liked the light weight and flexibility of the knife. Handle fit well in the hand.
The knife is a nice size, attractive and well made and finished. A definite great deal for the money. My only gripe is that the liner lock is not as strong as it should be, allowing some closing type movement. Thanks for the good deal and the opportunity to provide a review statement.
Outstanding performance in splitting kindling. Works flawlessly and has perfect grind to break down dry wood. Sharp enough to creat feather sticks on the smaller pieces. Much safer than using a hatchet and saves abuse on your knife. Is e wooden baton to strike.
One might wonder what an old woman who lives in a large city might want with a froe. There's the large street tree in front of my house, which loses branches in a big wind, and the 3 story maple that shades my back yard, but must be trimmed to provide some sun for my lettuce and tomato plants. So I do some wood processing: because I grill my beef steaks, chicken thighs and lamb steaks on my hibachi over a wood fire (no petroleum laced charcoal, thank you). The wood smoke enhances the flavors and I have to fit the wood into my little cast iron hibachi. So...I need a froe, and this one fits the bill.
Nice tool, it lives in my camper and is there when I need it.
The Schrade Cutlery Company was founded in 1904 in Walden, New York. The quality of the cutlery produced was unique to the industry at that time. Imperial Knife Company, established in Providence, Rhode Island in 1916, grew to manufacture a full range of value-priced folding pocket knives.
