Wow, that is a nice spread! That one on the bottom is particularly spectacular.
Gives new meaning to the phrase "Blood In, Blood Out"!!!World War II Randall Orlando Fighter. Much earlier in the thread someone opined that it was unlikely that any of these fantastic blades would ever be used for their intended purpose. But, let me introduce you to one that did “live” to its purpose. This Orlando fighter was in the possession of a USMC officer who was drafted into the OSS and saw extensive action behind enemy lines in Europe. After WWII he continued to serve and, as the OSS was phased out, he became part of the newly-formed CIA and proceeded to serve as an operator in the “black ops” world for many years. This fighter served him well over the years and was blooded during his service. In short, it is a knife that has “been there and done that” and, despite its well-used appearance, is still fully capable of slipping into a sheath and going out there to serve again.
