I loved reading these reviews. They are a little "on the edge" and frequently VERY quirky. Maybe the humor isn't intended, but I found myself wanting to read the reviews for knives I wasn't even interested in because of the writing. great link
I did buy the Sharpfinger, $19.95 plus tax at the local Super K Mart, and being that the total tab was over ten dollars, I got a case of coke for $3.99 with it! Now that is a bargain, and the knife? Holy Merde, Batman, I would never have guessed that this little knife being sold at hardware stores across America for the last eighty years is such a wonderfully handling piece, but then I forgot who buys them..farmers and hunters not necesarily with lots of money and no pretensions for Tactical Looks or Gimmicks, just a useful excellent knife.
Schrade is now 94 years old.
Nemo, I will try the Wolverine as well soon. Thanks again.
One other thing: I truly love yours and Fred's English usage. You guys while functioning in a second language give us great knowledge and insight, entertain the hell out of us, make us laugh and do it in a language not your own...forward ho!
Nemo, nice job on the Project review. The close up shot of the serration pattern was nice I had not seen that before. It looks chisel toothed much like MD's which is good as that's what I would prefer. Did you find and utility to the serrations on the Project? Did you notice any wear on them, rounding and such?
By the way when you say :
On wood, ropes, wet ropes, and wet dirty ropes with sand, the Project II easily beat its competitor!
Is the competetion the ATAK? If so that is interesting. I would have expected the harder ATAK to hold up better on some of the softer material but dirty ropes with sand could pose a bit of a problem in regards to chipping.
How did the edge on the Project wear down? Did you just see a gradual even blunting or was there any chipping or indenting?
