    Randall Made Knives

    This is a great site to check out the history of Randall Made Knives (it is not the official website), as well as see examples from WWII to the present. Make sure you click on the "Randall Catalogs" button to see pictures/prices for each knife over the years. It's pretty cool.

    Neat site, thanks for sharing it.

    Also found out about how much my first wife spent on the Model 18 she gave me in the 70's.

    Being totally ignorant on current prices, are his for sale knives in a fair market range?

    Thanks for the site, lots of info there.

    They’re very reasonable, bearing in mind you’re paying retail. We’re at the point, I think, where the money you save ordering from Randall isn’t worth the backlog. He’s a big name over on Knifetalk. He gets ahold of some seriously awesome and unusual stuff.

    randall's are way out of my preferred price point but it's gonna be fun going thru the site in depth. I just did a quick glance, photography was super. always admired them but never hooked up with one. appreciate the link.

    I gathered about 8-9 of them over the years. Sold them all but my Model 25 to a dealer last year. I did OK. I didn't lose $ on any knives but didn't get "retail" for them either. Nor did I care. It was time for them to move on. And if he keeps them, good for him. Sells em for near-retail, good for him as well.

    That Model 25 just fits my hand so well. I'll never use it. Just for fondling. LOL
