My new favorite knife.
I own a lot of different kinds of knives and this may be my favorite knife ever. It's hard to describe how versatile this knife is, but I use it for everything from opening packages to hiking to cutting my steak. I don't hunt, so I don't skin animals, but this knife is far more useful than performing that task. The full-tang blade is thick and the handle scales are satisfying to handle. The grind on the blade gradually converges to a cutting edge from the base (it isn't sharpened near the lowest point). The blade length is just about perfect for general use.My only complaint with the Sharpfinger is the difficulty with sharpening. I own a USA-made knife (pre-2004) and getting a razor sharp edge on this knife is exasperating, but the 90% edge I am able to put on it is very durable and gets most every job done with style. Maybe the new ones are better in this regard.In any case, I highly recommend this knife. It is not just a "skinning knife". It is a fine tool from a great company. I expect to use mine for the rest of my long life.
