    Here's a pair of Randall knives, the ivory handle is just that, ivory from yesteryear. A retirement gift from a co-worker two years ago. The Model 14 Attack has been my working Randall for 15 years. It's a favorite, what more can I say.

    yes it is, a true working skinner but not with so much belly or sweep it won't do most camp chores. It's turned slab bacon into skillet material several times....handles deer skinning and picked a few knots loose - though you gotta watch Randall knives when picking knots, catch the tip with a bit of pressure and you cut more than you pick. It's a heck of a working blade - still made today. I THINK this one dates to the 1970s after talking with Randall in person. But that's as close as I can get. The sheath looks period correct, though it was in pristine condition - this particular knife was not carried in that sheath. My co-worker told me up front the sheath was newly made.

    Nice knife. I love Randall’s and have an order in for one that’s going on 3 years. I ordered a model 1 7”.

    three years, your number will come up soon. I visited the shop last fall, placed an order; my wife about fell over when the guy rattled off the approx delivery time. A 1 / 5 is a long time favorite of mine, traveled many a mile with me. A pathfinder about my all time favorite, thogh these two photographed will get most jobs done. The 14 blade is a bit thick for camp chores, but will suffice.

    Good looking knives rblondon.
    I had lived in Orlando many years ago and toured the Randall shop. I had always wanted a Randall knife and finally joined the list. After about a 5-1/2 year wait my 7" #1 arrived last year. It just feels right.

    Nice photo, many a Randall has trudged off to war hanging opposite of a tired 1911
