I purchased this today I think I got a pretty decent deal. I just saw that it was a Randall and picked it up. It doesn't appear to have ever been used.





I will be swift in my attack. My venom is packed with enough pride and gun powder to take down
any adversary that attempts to tread on my freedom. You've been warned, but if you
still want to test me, take a step forward.

Model 11 in 4"? What I'd say from the stamping from the back of the sheath.

Yup, I agree.

Alaska skinner, 4 inch, as said. No options - that is the standard model.

Don't store it in the sheath.

Yours is carbon steel.

How much did you pay? The catalog price is $385, but that comes with a 5 year wait. To get one from a dealer in under a year will cost you about $525. If yours is new, and, even better, has the paper wrapper, it is worth about that $525.

They are good knives, but most never see any use.

I paid $150 at an estate sale.

I've got one with 4 1/2" blade and stag handle. It's my one and only Randall; had it since about 1970. Like jhe said, it doesn't get much use, but I love having it.

Buy all the Randalls you find at $150.

You got an amazing deal for $150. That's a fantastic knife and one that I'd put to hard use actually doing what it was intended. Most Randall's end up sitting in a safe and being admired. Nothing wrong with that, I've got a couple that do just so. I also have a few that I use outdoors all the time, as they were intended. There's just something about a high quality piece of equipment being put to work.

I agree with your thoughts. My Randall doesn't get used for its intended purpose because I don't hunt and don't skin big game. But I was a teenager who wanted a Randall and I thought it was a cool knife. And so it is.

I've collect them for a number of years now. We even had a thread once about if anyone ever used theirs. I use one of mine a bunch. Its one of the steak knives (one of a set). I use it to cut steak that some folks say can be cut with a fork. To each his own. I learned early on not to cut against a china plate. It tends to roll the edge. Even the best of edges won't hold up to such abuse long. Doesn't kill the edge, just rolls it over requiring "unrolling".

Gotta love estate sales and at the same time it's sad the guy couldn't pass that on to a son or daughter. Heck of a deal.
