5 Thick Spacers

Black Canvas Carry Case
Summary: this is a 1950's Randall model #1 outfitted as follows: 7-1/2" tool steel blade, double brass hilt, 5 thick spacers and sweet looking / nicely shaped stacked leather handle. A duralumin butt cap with brass nut / washer and lanyard on the back end completes the knife. The knife is in excellent condition for it's age, used but definitely not abused. The blade has scratches and use marks on both sides, the guard with patina and a ding on the back side. You'll find some handling marks on the butt cap, all relatively common for a used Randall fighter of this vintage. No movement of the butt cap; overall, I'd grade the knife about a 8 on a scale of 1 to 10.
The brown-button Heiser sheath is in excellent shape, maybe carried but not much. The sheath is stamped 1 over 8 below the Heiser trademark on the back belt loop, you'll find an unused blue print Norton “box” stone in the front pouch. Brown buttons solid and function as they should. 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)
8 photos for review -- as shown, a black canvas carry case is included. This is a fair deal on this old 1950's Randall fighter, quite nice and great for collection / investment purposes. It’d be a fun one to hang on your belt at the local knife or gun shows, I’m sure you would get a lot of attention. Thanks and good luck.
