Now seventy years in production, Randall Made Knives have always had a reputation for quality. During WWII, they gained quite a bit of notoriety as several well-known soldiers carried and endorsed them. Ronald Reagan, for example, owned a Randall during WWII.
These knives were also used by NASA as it built its fledgling space program in the 1960’s. See the Model #17 “Astro” for the Randall model used by NASA.
The Model 18 shown at right is a current-production model available in two blade lengths — 5.5″ and 7.5″. It is a dual-edged blade, with a three-quarter length sawtooth edge on top.
The handle measures 4.75 inches of stainless steel with a removable brass butt cap. The hilt is matching quarter-inch brass, with holes for a wrist strap.
Additional features such as compass and blade etching are available as well.
Buy one of these from Randall Made and you’ll find yourself on a FIVE YEAR waiting list! Many people are happy to wait that long given how collectible these knives are. For those who need their knives a little sooner than that, click on our eBay link below.
