Anyone have knowledge of or collect them?
I'd like to learn about them and am wondering if there are any good books out there about them.

My Grandpa always said "sounds like too much thinking, why don't you try aiming!"

There is probably more written about Randall's than any other custom knife.

Iíve admired and even bid on a few but at the end of the day I am a end user not a collector. They are pricy but I would think if kept in mint they would just appreciate

Although always described as a cowboy, Roswellnative generally acts as a righter of wrongs or bodyguard of some sort, where he excels thanks to his resourcefulness and incredible gun prowesses.

I have 2.
Earlier in my life I was visiting a grade school friend in Orlando. We were riding our dirt bikes in some orange groves and when we exited the groves my friend pulled up in a parking lot and we went inside. lo and behold it was the Randall shop. He was well known to the workers and we had a very good tour and lesson about the making of their products.
For work or display, Fine quality. as good as it gets. Probability the standard for other makers to achieve
But I prefer other more common brands as a working tool due to their value.

No brag, Just fact

I bought a mint 1970s stag handled #3 at a local gun show yesterday. I always wanted one and the price seemed fair.
I went to Randalls websight and they have a 5 year wait on a new one!
5 years!!!

I have three and don't know diddly squat about them. I'm buying lessons.

I have a Randall pathfinder and it is and excellent knife. I believe it was about a four year wait on mine but it was well worth it.

I own a couple nice knives and have been tempted by Randall. However $200 or so is my pain threshold, I can't see spending $500+ on a knife that will sit in my gun safe. You get into those values and you are distracting away from my gun purchasing!!!
