Bruno, Mel, I wasn't ignoring you. For some reason I didn't make it back here and didn't see your posts.
There's not much of a story to that knife. Yes, it was done by Dale (pretty obvious with his mark prominently on the blade) and yes it started life as a Camillus Electrician's knife. I guess he just decided I needed it and it showed up in the mail one day. You could have knocked me over with a feather. That's been close to four years ago and I'm still in awe of it. Makes my eyes sparkle every time I see it. I appreciate all the knives with which I've been gifted but there's a few that are especially special and this is one of them. Thank you Dale. Semper Fi brother.
Edit: Probably a good time to post these while I'm at it. Please pardon the poor pictures of the pearl Doc & Gunstock. No excuse Sir.
