What would you guys think of a Case, GEC, or Queen Sharpfinger?

    I think it's about time the pattern gets reintroduced! The new-old stock on eBay isn't going to last forever.

    MGC Bear beat you to it. ;) They have one with fake stag and rosewood handles
    But to answer your question I would rather see GEC make one. It may be more money than Queen or Case but I really like their 1095 and how well it keeps an edge.

    My 1st fixed blade ever. Used it as a fishing knife....till I forgot to clean it & left it in the tackle box in the garage for several months. Learned a valuable lesson about knives that day. Also learned another lesson about re-sheathing a pointy knife in a floppy leather sheath. No stitches were required, but it was my 1st good accidental cut/stab with a knife.

    And with all those fond memories I bought an old Shrade a while back & it sits in front of my computer monitor.

    With Case I'd be afraid what goofy handle scales were on it, or if something funky was etched on the blade.

    I'd love to see what a GEC Sharpfinger would look like.

    I'd be more worried about GEC etching something funky on the blade than Case. ;)

    GEC, Case, and Queen read this forum sometimes, right? If the people here made clear two things, (1,) that they want a Sharpfinger pattern, and (2,) that they want it without goofy handle scales or an etched blade, the manufacturers might listen.

    The old SF is a great fixed pattern hunting knife! I'm not saying I would get one but I think it would sale if made right!

    I'd like to see it back on the new market too. A very likeable and useful knife

    Why not make it a 2013 Forum Knife? Haven't had a fixed traditional yet, and it would be a good pattern for some company to revive.

    I've had two bear knives in the past. Never again. I'd love GEC or possibly Queen to make this pattern.

    I miss the old Sharp Finger a great deal. While no sharpened pry bar (not nocking them I own several) IMO it was an excellent field knife capable of most any tasks in regards to hunting or almost any outdoor activity within reason. However, judging from the trends of the knife world, in the scheme of things there may not be a whole lot of demand for such a fixed blade knife. Who knows ? I do know, however that from this sub forum there has been a resurgence of interest in conventional and traditional knives as of lately.

    I know its not a Case or a Queen, or a GEC, but it is still a pretty nice representation of a Sharpfinger. So, for those of you who need a Sharpfinger fix before one of the before mentioned manufacturers make one, check out Keith Willis here on the forum. I picked up this one a few weeks ago. Its in 1095, with walnut burl handle, and copper hollow pins. Real nice fit and finish. Overall very happy. And at a reasonable price also. :)

    An interesting idea, indeed!

    I was thinking more along the lines of just regular production. Nothing fancy, nothing special, nothing expensive, just a well-made and high quality knife that can be obtained without the waiting times and high prices of a custom maker, or the uncertainty of something that's new-old stock. A knife that can be obtained for a good price, that you know will still be on the market in a few weeks in case you don't currently have the money, and that you can purchase from an actual dealer instead of a random person on the Internet. A Forum knife would be nice, but it would kind of defeat the point.

    A GEC sharpfinger for 2013 would interest me greatly!!! Put me down.

    I'd go for that. I feel like from time to time we forget this forum caters to traditional fixed blades as well. Then the only thing to decide would be some of GEC's 1095 VS their 440c......

    Just found this, figured I might as well post it here. It's not a replacement for a GEC-made Sharpfinger, but still... not bad!

    Posting links to external vendors who are not BF sponsors is a no no, just be careful posting links. :)
