Put an order in with Gary Clinton back in February for 5 RMK’s and two of them are headed my way, both #16 SP1’s with options, I have two #26 Pathfinders and one #25 Trapper yet to be completed but Gary said he should have them before the end of this year.

Cut it out and eveled thank you for the kind words. As well to the others for all the “likes”.

Here is a Bradford that is in Sheldon’s book. Page 84, IIRC. E0DBCA70-E637-457E-BB8C-785A931428B7.jpeg 22FB0730-A16C-4E46-9CAA-D968DFF5DC07.jpeg

It’s beautiful. It’s actually the knife I am planning to order as my retirement present.

Got these in from Gary Clinton last month, they were shipped to him in two shipments from mid-November to early December. I ordered 5 RMK’s from Gary in February 2019, (1) #25, (2) #26’s and (2) #16 SP1’s, the two #16 SP1’s came first followed by the balance of my order.

Model 25 - Trapper w/a stainless blade

Those are Heavy Duty knives! Great comparison photo!

Thanks. :)

The 14 is much more so though, I like the handle better as it's wider, more hand filling. :)

I can really see what they had in mind when they designed the 14. It's a real beast that should be able to take anything short of someone trying to break it in purpose.

I know the history behind the model and it's development and intended use. I am bias as I was in the USMC. :D

The knife of many sheaths (NFS) - when I bought this pre-owned Randall Model 16 SP1 Fighter twenty years ago, it came with a loose-stitch Johnson Roughback sheath. That, coupled with the new FL blade stamp, indicate a mid to late 1980’s production window; or, an early version of this model.

Shown as Photo 142 on page 153 of my reference book with a high quality Kydex sheath - over the years it’s also been sheathed in black, waxed, no-hone, or some combination therein. Today, it has a new option, a recently acquired custom Sullivan’s Roughback sheath; a full-tang Model #1-7 by another name, this one fits me perfectly.
