Back to the Top you go..
Kickin' this to the top. . . . .in honor of Reif the Thief !
This does kinda belong near the top, doesn't it?
It does, but since Dale doesn't make knives anymore, people don't stay on top of it like they do with other makers.
If true, that's a good thing ! Maybe he's changing his name like "Blade" does, in attempt to squeak past us.
I was just telling this story this weekend to a knife collector in Napa Valley. He noticed my Sebenza and we started chatting. The story of my designs and how I got ripped off by Rief had seemingly falen by the wayside. I check my email this morning, and here it is. You guys rock. I made one final attempt to get a hold of Dale a few months ago. I was chenging cell phones and transfering numbers when I came across his. I called it but the number belongs to someone else now. Last I heard, he was mowing lawns for a living. And I'd bet even his lawn mower blades are dull!!!!
I sent him an email asking if he still made knives. He hasn't gotten back to me, but the email didn't bounce, so the account is still active.
FWIW, Dale's last name rhymes with "Life".
Like Mr. Blade, another sad case of wasted talent.
Hey, that means it would also rhyme with knife. Too bad it doesn't rhyme with thief. We could make up some interesting poems.
Keith, I just don't get it.
OK, someone like Art S. is just a leech with probably limited talents (other than scamming), but Blade and Reif (rhymes with "knife") have real skills when it comes to making knives; in fact, exemplary skills. I've seen them. Both of these guys could be as revered as a Mayo or a Carson and making a TON of money legitimately, and instead they're just wasting what they were blessed with. I feel very sorry for the people here who have been burned by them but I also feel sorry, in a different way, for those two characters because it is so obvious that they don't have a clue about what they have thrown away. What might have been, what might have been......
Well said Holger.
"Dale doesn't make knives anymore"........THAT cut worth shbiit!!!
I noticed that Julie at Arizona Custom Knives has a new Dale Reif knife listed on her site. I sent her a link to this thread.
Julie emailed back to say that the knife she has is on consignment, not one she got from Dale.
BTTT for #$%@s and giggles.
So, does anyone know for sure if Dale is still making knives or not?
BTTT with you, Reif the thief.
One more time.
I just realized something....
Your like the guy who enters the numbers and pushes the button on the computer in Lost !
I don't know what'll happen if you don't enter those letters and push that button..
So keep entering those letters!
Just in case Dale is still making knives, this thread needs to be revisited every once in awhile.
