Randall knives info

Postby buddyie22 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:47 pm

Randall knives....Thought it maybe interesting to some who have,want,or are interested in Randall knives. I live in central Florida close to the Randall knive company, been down here since 2004 came from north east Kansas. My friend Scott and I attend the same church in Wintergarden Florida,about 7 or 8 miles west of Orlando.Scott is a supervisor at Randall,has been there around 15 years (I think). He is the last person that sees the knife before it is shipped to parts unknown. Pretty much quality control I guess. Here is a picture of him and his wife and a few Randall’s he has in his collection. He walks, talks, bleeds Randall knives. Good friend.

Very nice collection. That would look good in my house. I love the picture in the background of Jesus washing Peters feet.

Very nice! I hope he has some he uses. Nice to know quality control is handled by a Patriots fan.

I have never collected Randall Knives but have been aware of them for years - they have a cult like following among Soldiers. I was gifted with my first one (this Number 1) from my fellow officers when I relinquished command of the 30th CSG in 2003. My second is the only other one I own, I bought a deer hunting model #26 from a stocking dealer in Fayetteville NC a good time back. They are excellent knives. OH

Since they wouldn't turn right side up for me, I figured there must be others with the same problem.

I only have one. Bought it sometime around 1978 at a gun shop up the street from me. It's a Model 8 Trout & Bird. I would love to have more but you can't get one for $117 these days. Even the Effingham Blackjacks go for a good bit more than that.

As the Colonel said, very popular with the troops during Viet Nam. Two guys in my hooch owned 'em. StClair had a Model #1 and Kjentvet had a Model #18 Crutch Tip. Kjentvet sold his at some point in time between then and now and is very sorry he did. A Viet Nam carried #18 Crutch Tip brings a ton of money these days.

That's a very nice #8 Jerry; my tastes today run heavily to hunting designs over warrior designs. OH
