What kind of size are those? Look like they'd make a nice sgian dhub.
Vintage '70s #14 CDT, SS. New sheath
Another mid '70 Randall, 7", #1 in carbon and a maroon Micarta handle no end cap.
Blades are about 6”, the smaller about 4.
The smaller one would be a contender, then - 6", you're heading towards a dirk.
If i had to choose 1 knife, 1 gun and a fly rod to survive....you have 2 of them Yahoody!
Some recent arrivals
You seem to be getting back into some very nice Randalls!!
I think i need one!
Hope you and your family are well!
Interesting how one hobby or interest seems to be connected to another.
I came to this forum attracted by the Hats connection but I rapidly found out that there are a number of other interests of mine (albeit not all in the same order of dimensions in terms of time and money investment) which seem to be shared by quite a few others.
I have always had a penchant for edged objects or edged weapons.
Of course this has to be limited to keeping whatever we have mostly at home since we cannot exactly go around with blades in most European countries.
But I have a small collection which entertains me ( Others whom, as I see, invest plenty of money wouldn’t see this as much of a muchness I suppose). So I have 3 African spears , Masai, Turkana (this also has a rungu, a mace) and a Congolese Ngbandi.
Then I have A Swiss 1957 SIG Wegner Bajonet ( beautiful but, as many bajonets cannot be sharpened because is meant to perforate and not to cut), a reasonable Nepalese Kukri and a utilitarian but still nice, Collins Guatemalan cuchillo ( short version of a machete, I had that one too but with a 62 cm blade it was way too big to be practical unless in the jungle or en the even that zombies attack the house ).
My real treasure is a Dutch cutlass (Klewang) by Hembrug 1911 model, issued to the Dutch Marine infantry.
Next to these large sharp objects a small amount of pocket knives, nothing very expensive but I like them.
Thank you Sir, much appreciated!
I have not received it yet, but ordered one of these, a Fallkniven 35th anniversary model, Damascus blade, desert ironwood handle inserts, gold plated screws. Mass drop has them for $149 for the next few days, a limited edition of 1000.
