I think alot of folks don't know what a Randall is.
Didn't Know myself until I heard a song by Guy Clark called ( the Randall knife). Then I had to go find out. Beyond my means but they seem to be
top shelf items.
Yes,the Randalls seems to be expensive,but so are a lot of top quality custom knives.
Most folks are put off by the long wait (50+ months) but you can get them much quicker,for the same price from a number of Randall authorized dealers.
I did a quick look at the most recent Randall catalog,and,in all honesty,the prices are not that bad when you compare them with some other knives that are mostly factory produced.
Take a look at Strider knives and you will see what I mean. I have several Strider Knives,and they are quite robust but also are expensive. They are not custom made like the Randall knives.
