New to the forum and a recent Randall Made Knife owner with a story to tell... I have always been a bit of a knife enthusiast and over the years have collected several knives that I like to occasionally show to friends. Nothing of any great monetary value mind you but interesting for the most part.
Recently I had introduced a buddy to my collection. As he is a knife fan but not an avid collector he presented me with a blade a few days later asking if I liked it. When I replied "yes" and asked where he had got it he simply said "you can have it, it's yours."
Well come to find out his girlfriend was throwing out some boxes of what she considered "junk" and my buddy spotted the knife and grabbed it out for me, saving it from a ride to the local dump... I could tell from the first look that it was a quality piece and having not heard of Randall Made I decided to do a search to see if anything came up... As you all know I was amazed at what I found.
The knife itself is in good condition but had a few pits from being kept in it's sheath for unknown years. I gave it a good cleaning and done some polishing to bring it back to a "like new" finish. After talking to my buddy's girl I learned the name etched in the blade would have been her late husbands grandfather on his mothers side (whom he was named after). If this to be true dating the knife back some years. Although I only know a fraction of the knifes journey throughout the years it now resides as the pride of my collection. I believe it to be a Model-1, with stag handle, brass on brass.
Below are some pictures of the Randall and I'd greatly appreciate any information I can get as to the possible date and value of the knife. Thanks for looking and reading my story as I thought it should be shared with those who could appreciate the find and acquisition of such a fine knife.
