I have several Randalls, 14 and 15 were my thoughts to put on my armor when I was going to the sand. Opted for the 15 as the 14 was simply too large, not enough real estate for it and would have drawn too much attention. I put the 15 into a Spec Ops sheath and went. Served me well. I did tape the handle up to make the brass less noticeable while also making the knife look less desirable if a thief crossed my path. I would suggest you have your name put on it, especially if you have a child to hand it down to, I didn't do anything but last name so they can also take it and go.
