Wow Ray, thanks, that's a fine line up you have there. That Vintage Randall looks like a model #7. What year is it, if you know.?

I bought that mod 7 in 1980. It is my favorite fixed blade; I use it for my fish. All my knives are users.

Ray, I bought a Randall Mod. 7 in the year 2000. It has a stag handle. I was gonna make it a user but it was too nice. So I just added it to my collection. The price and value on it has really gone up.

Post a picture Robert; I would love to see it.

Ray, I have a picture on my personal page pictures. Click on my ole hairy chinnie chin chin and check it out. It'll be worth your trouble, I have some neat pictures on there.

Hey, just found this one in a kitchen drawer at an estate sale a few days ago, it's a 14" French made kitchen knife.

Just thought I'd share, handle is split and was pretty rusted when I picket it up for a few bucks.

Mike.

I have had this Swedish Chef knife in the drawer of my credenza in my office for about 2 years. I only bring it out when we BBQ here at work. 10.5" OAL, 6.25" blade and nice warm colored wood handle.

Hmmm...here is what I have in Carbon steel blades/knives.

Lum LFTi - M4 blade

Case Texas Jack - CV

Homemade(unfinished) - 1095

710 - D2

Contego - M4; GEC Geppetto Whittler - 1095

That is all I can think of right now.

I used to favor stainless steel blades on m y knives, until I started camping and practicing bushcrafting. I have recently been buying more carbon steel bladed knives than ever before. I know I have to protect the blades from the elements and keep them oiled more than my stainless knives, but I prefer the carbon steel blades on my fixed blades now. Here are a couple of my carbon steel blades. 

1095 High Carbon Steel

D2 Tool Steel

Here is one of my favorite carbon steel pieces - Cattaraugus 225Q, I believe it's 1095 carbon steel.  Anybody know where I could get a decent reproduction sheath for it or, even better, a halfway decent original?  I'm going to a militaria show in a couple of weeks and will be looking for one there but who knows if I'll find it. 

This knife came to me in a box of old junk I bought, and I almost polished the patina off of it but then got to noticing that it had never been so much as sharpened.  The patina on it is likely 75 years old or more and makes the blade look almost black in color which was kind of cool in a way, so I decided to leave it alone! 

Andy,
Love the knife and great story about the patina! I really like the ads!!

Thanks Jan, I've got this knife on display in my shop behind some of the newer Case and GEC knives I carry.  People ask me sometimes what I'd take for it but honestly I really don't want to sell it so I always price it way higher than it's worth.  I just like showing it to folks and building interest in the hobby, and I've actually answered questions as to why the blade looks so dark;  Many are surprised to learn that sometimes its better if something isn't polished to like-new lustre, and once in awhile somebody learns a new word: patina.  Makes my life a bit more interesting around here in a place where the topic is 95% ladies jewelry.
