You posted this in another thread, and I just commented there that the Model 2 at the bottom is much like a dagger found in King Tut's tomb. Look especially at the blade shapes.

In some respects, we haven't come all that far in knife design in all those centuries!

But you have some nice knives. I especially like the Model 1 on the right.

I absolutely love the bottom knife. I just wish I could afford it!

Full disclosure: the Randalls belong to a friend that knew I liked taking photos of knives with guns, knives without guns, knives with other knives...

Plus I personally can't see paying the $$$$ for a knife I wouldn't use for more than a photography model.

He has a lot more Randalls so there will be more pix in the future.

Very cool, love the knives- come to think of it, I have a Randall No. 14BP and a Ruger Single-Six Tri-color that might make an interesting pair in a photo sometime (when I have them handy)...

SWEET !
I need to get my wife to photo some of my Randall's and Ruger's , My camera disappeared and I don't have a cell phone picture taking thing.
Being technologically challenged (AKA old and backwards) has it drawbacks.

I chuckled a bit when I thought about how many of those LCP's could be purchased for the amount of money tied up in those three knives.

Beautiful knives. My Randall knives get used. The only way for me to have full joy of ownership is to cut stuff with them.

In response to the $ value disparity in my OP (Ruger v Randalls) I have another photo taken at the same time that is more balanced:

64-2 - shipped: Sept. 1981 - with box/papers/tools (stags added for photo)

Now we're talkin'!!!


I was a bit ... disappointed ... with that little semi-auto and knew you have better.

Still a fan of your pictures!
