Randall
« on: November 01, 2017, 02:39:46 PM »
Last night on "Forged In Fire" they hosted the first international competition with four smiths: one Pole, one Argentine, one Frenchman and one American whose name was Randall.

Was that the famed Randall knifemaker of renown? In any case - he won!

one of my favourite pieces of music is Kris Kristofferson's "The randall Knife"

My father had a Randall knife, my mother gave it to him
When he went off to world war two, to save us all from ruin.

Never heard the sing, but I'll look it up. Could you post a link?

It appears that the winner, J.W.Randall might not be associated with the company "Randall Made Knives":

I've been to the Randle Knives Shop & Museum, unimposing little building off Orange Blossom Trail in S. Orlando, it is about 1/2 mile from my work 20.
Sets back off OBT , looks like it was residence originally  :-\  .

the Grandsons run the place now....

I've carried a Randall Model 1 for decades - sold my Model 15 to my medic so I could afford it.

Back then, when you had an APO, you got top priority for manufacture and shipping, since Randall figured we'd actually 'use' them - I had it in a couple of months.

That knife has seen the world several times over, in some truly inhospitable places and is still beautiful, but then it's stainless, with a linen Micarta handle and nickel sliver hilt, so it would be easy to maintain.

I've still got the Randall boot knife I carried in my uniform boot and later in my more dressy cowboy boots when I was a detective (plain clothes). Never stuck anyone with it but it was a comfort knowing it was there.
