I agree. I'm not promoting the product, just trying to help out the OP.

I've got one nearly identical (it's at home, though, so I'm not sure what it says in the handle).

My Mum bought it off an in-store salesman. She was particularly impressed when he used one to cut through the steel handle of a hammer, etc, claiming it would still be just as sharp. They have a life-time guarantee Ė if they are broken (no matter whoís at fault) or get blunt, you send them back for a new one. It was pretty expensive.

I was skeptical (I donít tend to go for those Ďamazingí things). I still am a little Ė but I have to admit, the thing is good. For the price (which, while expensive, wasnít the up there with the top-end products), itís pretty darn good. Iíll see how it goes for a couple more years.

When I get home, Iíll look and see if I can find the details for you. It sounds like a very similar product.

Lol...it's one of those knives you used to see on an info ad. "It cuts thru brick..and still cuts tomatoes thin as paper.
The flip side of this knife has "Sportsman Dream" inscribed on the blade.
It still works like a champ 20 years later but is getting long in the tooth.

When I go to local stores and try and buy a knife like this...nothing.

When this knife first came out in the early 80's, there were 30 minute infomercials about it. When I shop for a replacement, I don't see them on the shelves. I'd appreciate a link for a replacement of this type of knife.


My Dad has the Sportsman's Dream set! Complete with the vinyl case and everything. I haven't seen 'em new in many years, not sure if they're being made anymore.
