Please note I am very excited to have Greg Gutcher and the guys at Sullivans do some ofmy sheath work for me now ! These are the same sheaths that Randall Made knives uses. They come with the orange stone in the pouch and the OD cord lace up on the sheath. This is a Wall Hand Made knife!!! a Randall Style model # 18 Attack/ Survival .It has a 5-1/2 " blade with sawteeth , made from 1/4" 01 tool steel , knurled hollow handle and removable threaded brass butt cap with a watertight "0" ring. This one has a 15mm compass made into it . This knife is the classic hollow handled survival knife. It was originally designed by Bo Randall for use in Vietnam. Please note the removable threaded brass butt cap , I have started to use my lathe more and am turning the brass butt cap out of 1-1/4" round stock.The tread size is 7/8" - 14 . This one also carries my new logo on the blade ,its has the ( Wall Knives ) . I use a 1"OD handle tube that is 4-3/4" long and it has a wall thickness .125 " it is made from 6061T6 Aluminum Aircraft tubing that is light and super strong. It will come with a correct type C sheath made at Sullivans saddle and hostler shop. This is beautiful blade,, very nice grind lines, Satin finish blade with sawteeth ! I made the threaded brass butt cap with the rubber O ring to seal off hollow handle. I make these threaded brass caps on my lathe and really adds a great deal to the overall looks and feel of the knife and will bring more reliability to the knifes water tightness. This style knife was made in early 60's and70's by Bo Randall of Orlando FL. ,,,,The ones I make are based on his line or style of Survival knives . I wanted this knife back in the early 70's but as a kid could not come up with the money to order one . : ) I am getting a kick out of making them for people who just want a solid , strong survival knife . Please note this one is made from 1/4" 01 tool steel , like the ones made back in the 60's and early 70's !! Hope you enjoy my take on this knife. The serial number is 117. This blade is Flat grind to the edge and is RAZOR sharp (top edge is sharp ) The sawteeth are the small type and are hand cut and are about 3 " of them to work with . I try to heat treat this type knife with a little harder edge so it will hold up out to more camp chores longer without hitting it on a sharpener. The tang is 7/8" by 2" and run inside the tube, cold welded/solder inside and filled with 3400 PSI epoxy leaving a 7/8" by 2-1/2" hollow space, that is sealed off with a brass butt cap waterproof rubber "O" ring. The handle tube is 4"-3/4" long with a smooth/ knurled finish and is about 5 1/4" overall with the new type cap. The hollowed handle is watertight and can carry small survival items. The big Oval Hilt has 1/4" flared holes to accommodate wrist thongs or just to have a point you can tie off the knife. The brass oval hilt is 3 1/4" top to bottom and is 1/4" thick , and is 1" wide. This blade has some nice grind lines, and will be a good design for camp use, or just in case on a day hike or a week long camping trip. I have a lot of faith in my blades and would pick it over any other knife out there if my neck was on the line and I do have people who carry my knives when they are in harms way. in very far away places now and know they will serve them well. The knife has a great feel in the hand and will go anywhere. This type knife is just right for Hikers , Campers , Fisherman, Hunters , Trappers , well anyone who is out in the wilds for a day or weeks at a time,. Over all a beautiful knife that will sure to get attention any time its in use. The heat treating is to a Rockwell hardness of 60 - 62 and is wickedly sharp . I free gr...
