Re: hunting knives
I've been a Schrade fan for years but, I've got a Track that's super. Got it from Track Knives in Whitefish, Montana in 1972; carbon steel. With it I got a sharpner I've never seen befor or since. It consisted of a flat fold over case with a wood block glued to it. A long bolt went thru it lenghtwise with a wingnut on one end. on each end was a short dowel. the bolt went thru both dowel's and the dowel's clamped down 400 grit wet and dry sand paper. They told me to drag the blade for sharpening then use the leather case for stropping. Thing worked great but has been lost for years. Once a year or so I'd take it back and they would re-sharpen it for me. According to them, the secrete to a fine edge was to polist it. The sharpener when folded was about 1/2", thick 1 1/2" wide, 3 1/2" long and had a belt loop sewed in.
