Nice ones! I guess I should try to get a colored Cadet, too. Such a nice knife, small, elegant, and with useful tools on it.
I must admit, I'm pretty excited right now! As you may remember, I found a mint (and I mean mint), NIB Cadet at a flea market a few weeks ago. Since I just can't stand to not use my tools, I sold it off. I was a bit bummed since it was nice and the Cadet is my favorite knife in general.Well, today I went to a gun and knife show. I was disappointed walking into the place cause it was small, and half the tables were empty. But I went ahead and walked the tables. There was a guy with a display of knives, all of which were cheap knockoffs of Case knives. All but one, that is. He has a silver ribbed Cadet there for cheap, so I bought it! The nice thing is this one is near mint, but has a few dings. AND someone had previously ground off the keyring nub, which I do to all of my Cadets (fits better in the watch pocket of my jeans that way).So I basically got real lucky twice in a few weeks, and this one I can keep and carry without fear of blemishing a perfect, rare knife. Did I mention I was excited? Since I am not at home, I will post some pics tomorrow.
