Randall Rosewood Border Patrol Model 1
Item #: RA-M1RW7BP
An A. G. Russell™ Exclusive
Several months ago, we received a call from the Randall shop with the offer of an exclusive handle material on a Randall model of our choice. Because the Model 1 Fighter is so recognizable as a Randall, we chose to use that model. Because the block of wood allowed us the flexibility, we choose to have it produced with a Border Patrol handle. Over the years, we have stocked several versions of the Model 1. Most have had a 7" blade of O-1 blade steel. At www.agrussell.com/randall-M1, you will see all the Model 1s that we try to keep in stock, including a few with stainless blades.
This exclusive Model 1 has a 7" blade of O-1 tool steel at 56-57 Rc. The handles are beautifully grained Rosewood Burl with a brass double hilt and brass and black spacers. The overall length is 11-3/4". Weighs approximately 11.4 oz. Includes a Randall Model A leather sheath.
(4-2017) 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 6 to 7 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.
