    Another term; "sharp shooter", was in use in Britishicon newspapers as early as 1801. In the Edinburgh Advertiser, 23 June 1801, can be found the following quote in a piece about the North British Militia; "This Regiment has several Field Pieces, and two companies of Sharp Shooters, which are very necessary in the modern "Stile of War". The term appears even earlier, around 1781, in Continental Europe, translated from the Germanicon Scharfschütze

    Yes. Scharfschütze means exactly that. Sharp = scharf in practically every use you can make of that term in the German and English languages. Sharp edge, sharp mind, you can translate that in German as scharfe Klinge and scharfes Gehirn (or, better, Verstand). Germans use "scharf" also for spicy though. Shooter and Schütze are also practically synonyms.
