Brown Santa (UPS) dropped off my Randall Model 19 (Bushmaster) today.  Just a hair shy of five years from the date of order.









Specs:  

- black micarta handle (leather is standard)

- stainless steel blade

- 5.0" blade length (4.5" is the other option)

- Silver nickel hilt (brass is the standard option)

- Thumb notches on spine of the blade

Hope you knife nuts will enjoy the pics.  I'll have to give it a good cleaning to get my fingerprints off the blade in the meantime.

Seriously, nothing about it appears special just by looking at the pic.

No shit. Should have got one from DamascusKnifeMaker here. He makes some BAD ASS blades.

It's a Randall.  If you are a collector, the name has an intrinsic value in itself.

The name doesn't necessarily mean a better blade, but its just the same as anything else.........two products can be equal in quality, but a "perceived" history of quality can bring a premium vs. a newer maker.

No way would I wait that long for a knife.

Maybe they should hire another knifemaker. That one guy isn't keeping up with orders very well.

I remember getting a pamphlet at a gunshow back in the 90s.  Those knives were really neat looking.  I wanted one, but I decided against it due to price.  In the late 90s, I wanted one, and the wait was up to 2 years at that point.  I figured the knife I found in the back of my med unit would suffice.  I still carry that knife today.  Oh well.

Nice knife! I've had a Dozier on order for 20 months now. Still a few months out from being made. I couldn't imagine waiting 5 years!

I spent $500 on a MicroTech and I do not use it because I am afraid that the blade will get scratched or the OTF spring will break...

That's just how long the list is man.





There are plenty of knifemakers out there, PLENTY!!





But when someone wants a Randall, they get in line, with lots of others who want a Randall.

Once Bo backed out of the business I lost my fascination with Randall knives.  Nice blade though and enjoy.

I have a Brend that I bought from Walter in 1985 for $200. It's worth about 3k right now, maybe a bit more.

I have that same knife with my name and a brass hilt . I bought it as my birthday present to myself. It is number 3 along with a 14 and a 10-7 . I use my 10-7 to cut thanksgiving turkey every year.  My model 19 will go in the woods

I find myself asking the same question. I would have looked for a used one or a different knife over waiting 5 years for it. Wtf did the guy have to do mine the ore with a tea spoon and smelt it in his rectum?
