Another ribbed Cadet!
« on: December 05, 2010, 12:59:40 AM »
I must admit, I'm pretty excited right now!  :climber:

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.  :tu:

 :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh

Did I mention I was excited?  ;)  8)

Since I am not at home, I will post some pics tomorrow.

If the trees blew down the wind and no one was around, would the alphabet song really go backwards?

I understand what you mean about not wanting to carry a mint example :)  Well done :tu:

I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.

Sounds about perfect mate. :tu:  Personally I'd have had no problem with carrying the first one you got (they don't stay mint for long you know ;)) but each to their own.

Try not to be the person who blunders around and causes everyone else to get out the way.  Everyone else thinks you're a utter...

Here are some bad pics of my current Cadet collection, all of which are users.

I really like the thick tang main blade on the ribbed one.  It looks much nicer and feels more solid.  It has a much more reassuring click when you open it.  I wish Vic hadn't slimmed 'em down.  Oh well...

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.  :tu:

Definitely!  The colored ones are very nice.  I would like a red ribbed one at some point.

No, I was at a gun show that is held inside of a flea market on the north side of Cincinnati, OH.

Just making certain; Fayetteville's shows are typically abysmal, hence my asking. ^^;
