Thread: Randall Made Knives found in garage, rusty, but with sheath and sharpening stone...

    Randall Made Knives found in garage, rusty, but with sheath and sharpening stone...


    ADVERTISEMENT
    In my second cool find this week, I uncovered this Randall in my garage. Must have been my dad's. No idea as to the age. What do you think? Is this thing a candidate for refinishing? Anyone know anything about "Randall Made Knives" out of Orlando?

    You would have had better luck if you'd posted this in the Randall forum here.

    A nice 11-5. I'd leave it alone. There's undoubtedly a lot of history there.

    Randall?? Never heard of them. I'll give you $10.00 for it...... Just kidding. A great find and well worth restoring.

    You keep finding some great knives, congrats.
    I am interested in SF bracelets. I am looking for a AB balisong (production). All cash offers.

    Randall Made Knives found in garage, rusty, but with sheath and sharpening stone.

    I posted this in the general forum space. Someone there pointed out the fact that there is a Randall Collector forum. Uh, duh. Newbie, you know. Anyway, can I get some advise on this knife? What should I do with it? Send it to Randall for refinishing? Or is it too far gone? Pics here:

    It's not really that bad, just use it and enjoy, the rust will come off.

    Oil the blade....

    I could refurb it for you.

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the knives I cannot buy, the budget to buy ones I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

    No. If you do decide to have it refurbished, send it to Randall in Orlando. They'll do it right.

    Agreed that is the best answer.

    Send it in to Randall knives, when you buy a Randall you buy their great service and care. I'm sure they will take care of you.

    If you don't know what you have found then let me put it to you this way. If I ordered one of those today it would cost over $300 and I wouldn't get it for 5 years.

    If it were mine, I would oil it up with mineral oil, get it good and sharp, rub a little Obenauf's into the leather and use it. It looks like a fantastic knife to my eyes.
    If you do want to have it reconditioned, definitely take Samael's advice and send it to Randall.

    If you do have it cleaned, you will be removing all of it's history. Personally, I wouldn't. You can never make it new again.
    Great find. I'm glad you found it before it got bad.
    Rest in peace Maniacal Pete. I wish I could have done more.

    It's a late '60's knife that needs nothing more than a few micro-fiber cloths, a little Flitz, a toothbrush, and even less mineral oil. Do Not refurbish it! Anything other than a little 'wax on, wax off' will completely screw up the originality. As posted here elsewhere, you can't make it new again, so don't even try...

    What do you think of that knife you have found there Liquidmice?
