    One quick note to give credit for an aspect of a Randall purchase that may well, at times, be overlooked - the sheath.

    A Randall to me not only represents the obvious aquisiton of a quality outdoor tool but what is of added importance to me, and very much an added attraction towards a Randall purchase, is the unquestionable quality and funcionality of the sheath.

    I see custom and production knives of obvious fine fit and finish - yet their sheaths resemble toys with stitching like that of a feed bag.

    To me, when I aquire one of Greg's sheaths, I add a lttle saddlesoap over the years and bee's wax or lip balm to the male portion of the snap - and I'm set for my next outting, period.

    Greg and Family, thanks for being part of the Randall "package."

    Agreed, but not just for Randall's.

    Here is one for the BRKT SandStorm.

    And for a customized Fallkniven F1.

    Just like the knives they hold, the sheaths are a work of art.

    The 1st Randall I ever owned I bought from a knife pal sight unseen. I had a few days to return it if I was not happy. I opened up the box and pulled out a #1 Fighter stag plain handle made in the late 80' or early 90s just my guess, but what really cought my eye was the Black Sullivans CROC mint sheath.That was a very pleasant surprise. I have bought a few since my 1st Randall but never was it housed so comfotably.

    Seems odd to me today I call Randall today for a change order on 2 knives I have due in 3 months,...One is a 11-4" he says while we are talking let me see what sheath you are getting I am thinking what is he talking about? He said if I make a note in the change order I will get the old A sheath with hone pocket in front but they are getting away from the hone pocket on this knife after this batch and are going to the B sheath as the standard sheath because they think it looks better. IMO I think the A sheath with the hone pocket on front looks best O well maybe my knife will be worth more being the last group to get the old sheath.

    I agree 100% on the Model A sheath!

    Do you know if they are still going to offer the A, if you are willing to pay extra?

    I thought about upgrading my Model 16 Special Fighter to a Model C but could not stomach the extra $40.00.

    Upgrading a model A sheath to a C sheath is a $10 charge. A replacement C sheath is a $40 charge.

    I'll have to verify that one.

    I have never tried ordering or getting a quote from Randall for an upgraded sheath (besides Black).

    Although I had heard you got dinged for the whole sheath. Seemed legit to me since, for example, my last order was a #5-6" with a Gold Micarta handle. I did not get any "credt" for trading in the Leather for the Micarta, having to pay the full $40.00 to upgrade.

        In response to Knifefury

    A leather handle is the standard on a 5-6, any change to this would be considered an upgrade and qualify for a charge as such.

    But please do check with the shop on this. Mon-Thurs 7-5 and Fri 7-1. 407-855-8075
