Randall #1-8 "Fighting Knife"
8" Stainless Steel Blade
Nickel Silver Hilt
Black Micarta Handle
Duralumin Butt Drilled for Lanyard
Johnson Roughback Sheath
Randall Knives Carry Case
Summary: this is a previously owned, older Randall model 1 outfitted as follows: 8" stainless steel blade, double nickel silver hilt, black micarta handle, and dura butt drilled for lanyard. The blade is spotless with what appears to be the original edge and blade finish, it's gorgeous! There's some tarnish on the nickel hilt that I didn't mess with (but would clean off quickly with a bit of simichrome or the like), a couple of small scratches on the handle and light handling on the duralumin butt cap that doesn't amount to much. Overall, it's an 8.5 or better on a scale of 1 to 10.
The original Johnson roughback sheath is in excellent or better condition, correctly stamped 1 8 below the Randall trademark on the back belt loop. You'll find a few handling marks here and there (all minor), just a smidgen of knife storage marks at the throat. (see photo 7) An unused plain salmon sharpening stone is in the front pouch.
8 photos for review -- as shown, a new embroidered Randall Made Knives carry case is included. This is a good buy on an older Randall fighter with stainless blade, the roughback sheath is super nice. A perfect addition to any knife collection and a great one to tuck away for investment purposes, would be a dream to carry on a regular basis. Thanks and good luck.
