Quite a few years ago, someone here posted a couple pictures of some Randall Bowie knives. I'm sorry, but I just don't remember who. Well, I'd never heard of them, so I had to find out for myself.

Here is a Randall Number 1. Just the standard knife, no changes were ordered. It was suppose to come last fall, but there was some delay, and I finally ended up getting it just last week.

And oh yes, I'm going to use it! It's too nice to just sit around.

It has a leather wrapped handle and the 7 inch blade, which is sharpened on both sides at the tip.

Fine looking Randall, we have a number of them here, including a number 1 also:

Wait until you find out about "brown button" Randall's - and, no, Randall never made a folder..... :mrgreen:

BTW: the colors, thickness and order of installation of the handle spacers is a way to date when a Randall was made.

I wanted one of these in 1970. I finally got one forty odd years later.

My favorite Randall:

Model 11, Alaskan Skinner. We used to have two others but they have been passed down. In 2013 when our oldest nephew turned 13 he got the model 8, Bird and Trout:

Image

When our niece turned 13 she got this one that was a Birthday present from my Brother many years ago, model 27:

Image

Every guy and gal should have a Randall to pass along down the family tree!

Nice knives! Tom Black, I too enjoy stag/elk antler on knives and guns! Randall #1’s were popular carry knives in Vietnam Nam.

And darned hard to get. I ended up using an issue USAF Pilot's Survival Knife. It worked just fine, heck still does today. But it never had the panache of a Randall. That's why I had to scratch the life long itch for an Attack-Survival model.

Hi,

This thread reminds me it's been a while since I updated Wendy and Kenneth on my status: I'm still adoptable! ;)
