Summary: this is a 1950's Randall model #1-8 outfitted as follows: 8" tool steel blade, nickel silver hilt, and nicely shaped thick stag handle. A duralumin butt cap and nut on the back end complete the knife. The knife is in excellent condition for it's age, used but still with a full blade. The blade has scratches and use marks on both sides, the guard with handling and sheath storage marks. You'll find some handling marks and dings on the butt cap, all relatively common for a used Randall fighter of this vintage. Overall, I'd grade the knife about a 7.5 on a scale of 1 to 10.

The Heiser sheath is in good shape, might have been on a belt a time or two but that's about it. The sheath is stamped 1-8 below the Heiser trademark on the back belt loop, you'll find a Norton Hard Arkansas stone in the front pouch. (unused, but not original) Sheath stitching is tight, overall excellent condition with handling marks front and back, and darkness at the throat and on the keeper strap. (from knife storage)

9 photos for review -- as shown, a new embroidered Randall Knives carry case is included. This is a deal on this old 1950's Randall fighter, quite nice with the nickel hilt and aged stag handle. Thanks and good luck.
