    I inherited two Randall knives and was hoping y'all could offer some insight regarding their age, what they might be worth and any other related facts. I was told they were purchased in the 50s and perhaps made by Bo Randall himself. I understand they are a Model 1 or 5? and a Model 2, each 7".

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Models 2 and 5. Made in 1950's. Absolutely terrific knives!

    outstanding condition for 50's knives, definitely worth some bucks, $2-3grand for both I'd bet, keep them, great knives and they'll never go down in value.....

    The pinned handles indicate earlier 1950's Do you have the sheaths?

    Good God! Those are stunning. They look new. How were they stored?

    Yes, I have the sheaths. They aren't in as good of condition as the knives as I suspect they were stored separately.

    Knives have lived in a safe for a long time...

    Posting photos of the sheaths and stones would help narrow down the age quite a bit...

    The sheaths are just fine. A bit of work and they would shine. Would love to own those two! Call me!

    Don't want to turn this into a sale thread but if you're serious I'm not sure how to contact you. I don't see a messaging feature within the forum.

    Is lower sheath marked “1” above the HHHeiser maker’s mark and “7” below it?

    Neither of you two have the required Gold level membership required to be conducting transactions here, so until you do, knock it off. Your paid membership(s) here support the forum, and at $30 a year is a hell of a deal.
