The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I was looking for a fixed blade type knife of good quality and wondered if any had any comments on Randal knives. They are expensive but are they worth the price is the big question?
I love the Great Eastern I have and was in the market but didn't see many I like from that maker in the fixed blade type. I am sure I can find cheaper but was still interested in hearing comments from first hand users of this make.
Well I sent Randall e mail again. I hope it doesn't take five years for a reply..lol
I am curious. I know you said you recently purchased a GEC and are happy with the product. I also understood you looked at the fixed blades but weren't thrilled with the handles or the blade type. I am assuming you were looking at the 2011 production photos listed under the heading new releases. Did you see the H73110? What Randall model fits the bill for you? I asked about the GEC because they did make some earlier fixed blades and I have been seeing them come back on the market recently. If you could tell me what Randall your looking at I could tell you if those were comparable. Randall is a great knife, I myself am too impatient to wait 5 years
I will talk more in deoth later not much time now. 5 years is a bit much for me I will take a second look at GEC. I did see one I liked but have to find it again and not sure of the model number. I am looking though for a nice 4-41/2 inch blade.
