Item #: RA-M12W13
For over 70 years, Randall Knives have been the best known handmade knives in the world. No two are exactly alike, for no jigs or patterns are used in the final construction. Randall Knives have been used extensively by soldiers, astronauts, government agents, celebrities, statesmen and royalty all over the world. They chose a Randall Knife because they needed a superbly crafted knife that they could count on in the home or in the field.
The bowie-style blade measures 13" and is made of O-1 high carbon tool steel (non-stainless). The blade hardness is 54 Rc. The walnut handle has a brass guard, collar and butt. Measures approximately 18-1/4" from tip to butt and weighs 1 lb 6.6 oz. Brown leather sheath included. Handmade in the U.S.A.
Due to Randall's high volume of orders, if not on our shelves when you order, delivery of Randall knives ordered from A. G. Russell is currently taking 10 to 12 months. If ordered directly from Randall the wait is currently about 5 years.
Randall Made Knives
For over 75 years, Randall knives have been the best-known handmade knives in the world. No two Randall Made™ knives are exactly alike, for no jigs or patterns are used in their final construction. Large-scale commercial production with this kind of attention to detail is not feasible and that's why knives of this unique quality are not widely available.
Gary Randall, the present owner, took over from his father, W. D. "Bo" Randall, in the mid 1970's and the shop remains so busy that today it takes over five years to get a knife directly from them. We are one of the few authorized Randall dealers, and try to keep a stock of their knives. If we don't have the knife that you want in stock, we can usually have it for you within 6-7 months, because our orders with Randall are booked years in advance. For anyone wanting to order directly from Randall the price will be lower but the wait will be extremely long.
