My Airman and Fireman. The bottom knife is a bayonet recovered from Iwo Jima during the flag raising by my old neighbor. He made the handle for it after the war.

There are a lot of great knives being made by the ever-expanidng community of Custom Knifemakers. But no matter how many "great knifemakers" make "great knives", the Randall #1 will always be "the knife" that makers, including myself, aspire to produce. That's just my 2 cents worth - I could be wrong. Anyway - that #1 is a truly sweet blade!:thumbup:

Actually, what makes it sweeter is the fact that I know the man who carried it in the Navy and he taught me all the Naval history that I missed out on when my own grandfather died before I realized how important history was. I miss the previous owner of the knife very much. Their is nothing like a history lesson given by people who lived the history.
