Ripped off by Dale Reif

If true, that's a good thing ! :D Maybe he's changing his name like "Blade" does, in attempt to squeak past us. :D
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.
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.

It does, but since Dale doesn't make knives anymore, people don't stay on top of it like they do with other makers.

"Dale doesn't make knives anymore"........THAT cut worth shbiit!!!
Hey Keith...

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!
