I am remiss

Post by Mumbleypeg » Wed Jun 22, 2022 12:54 am

I should have posted this several days ago. Dale (orvet) customized Schrade with beautiful moss green bone handles covers. Dale posted about it and put it in his AAPK store. I snatched it up, and it now resides in Texas! ::super_happy::

I needed an Orvet Custom, and this one called to me. Now comes the dilemma - carry it or not?

Yes to carry and use it.
It is the near mint vintage production knives that should not be used but preserved for posterity.

:lol: Thanks for the advice fella’s. I probably will carry and use it. I didn’t ask Dale but if he’s like most knife makers I’ve known he made it to be used.

But then, I get to thinking about collectors long after we’re all gone, with Dale by then being a famous knife modifier whose work is sought after. :wink: Then someone finds the knife with his ORVET stamp on it in mint condition. Will they be as excited then as we are today when we find a mint or near mint 60+ year old knife? ::hmm:: :lol:

That is a real beauty Ken!!

I am always apprehensive to carry a knife that beautiful..... BUT, how can you show it off to all of your friends if it is at home in a box?

CARRY on!!

Yes, carry and use. I’m sure if you asked, Dale would be glad to create a small pin crack on one of the handles. Bingo, no longer mint and no longer an excuse not to use it. 😀

Wonderful knife. I understand and certainly respect the opinions of our brethren. Nevertheless, I would like to see that knife preserved. Its a fine example of Dale's talent.

I would carry it occasionally.
I got one from Dale awhile back and I carry it often.
It's one of the finest in my collection. ::tu::

Very nice Ken ::tu:: ::tu:: Dale really did a great job on it for sure!!! I could carry it carefully to show off, but could never use it. I have to many EDC already, sure wouldn’t want to mess that one up.
