Summary: this Randall RKS4 (stag) #133 and original Sullivan sheath are both in excellent+++ to near mint condition. The knife looks brand new – a few light wipe marks on the nickel hilt and duralumin butt are all you'll find, and only in direct light. The blade is looks new with original edges. The thin, semi-deep cut stag handle is really nice, no checks or cracks. Neat coloring, very pretty, great shape.
The Sullivan sheath with just a couple of small scratches on the back belt loop. (see photo 7) Simply, it's been well cared for and properly stored. The correct Randall / RKS stampings on the back, an unused Fine India sharpening stone in the front pouch.
8 photos for review -- as shown, an unmarked black carry case is included. This is by far the most popular of all the RKS Club Knives, and like the Zacharias...one of the best feeling fighters you'll ever hold in your hand. Satisfaction guaranteed -- thanks and good luck.
