    Hello was hoping for some help or clarification. i was given this knife by family member back in 1986 or 87 but cant remember exactly. i have searched different sites looking for info and am coming up dry. can anyone tell me if this knife has any collectors value or should i just put an edge to it and use it? i cannot find any serial number anywhere and dont have the certificate that may have came with it.

    I believe it is called a "sharpfinger"

    Made in '86 or '87 it would be a USA made Schrade and is probably starting up in value since all new Schrade products are China made. I'd leave it alone, it's not eating anything!

    Schrade in Ellenville NY closed in 2004, so it's certainly a "vintage" Schrade and really very desirable to collectors, the Taylor made Chinese Schrades are junk. Keep it clean and wiped, hang on to it if you like or ebay it. You might be surprised what it fetches.....

    That knife was produced as a special edition for True Value Hardware between '88 and '90.
    You won't see very many. I still have an identical one in the original plastic bubble pack.
