^^That’s a great model 5!!!!!!!!! ^^
Nice 5 indeed. Bradford Angier would approve I am sure.
Put an order in with Gary Clinton back in February for 5 RMK’s and two of them are headed my way, both #16 SP1’s with options, I have two #26 Pathfinders and one #25 Trapper yet to be completed but Gary said he should have them before the end of this year.
Cut it out and eveled thank you for the kind words. As well to the others for all the “likes”.
Here is a Bradford that is in Sheldon’s book. Page 84, IIRC.
Here a couple more “different” Model 5’s.
A slab sided 5-6 and a newer 5-5 with a Ward Gay handle. The 5-5 was a gift from 3 special friends.
Just received this #12-9 that I ordered in 2014. Love the stag.
It’s beautiful. It’s actually the knife I am planning to order as my retirement present.
I have one coming, just like that one except the lanyard hole.
Model 12-9" #14 Grind

Got these in from Gary Clinton last month, they were shipped to him in two shipments from mid-November to early December. I ordered 5 RMK’s from Gary in February 2019, (1) #25, (2) #26’s and (2) #16 SP1’s, the two #16 SP1’s came first followed by the balance of my order.
Model 25 - Trapper w/a stainless blade
Model 26 - Pathfinder w/a nickel silver hilt and butt plate
Model #16 SP1 Fighter w/a nickel silver double hilt, Border Patrol grip and a black model-A sheath
Model 16 Special Fighter.

Model 14 Attack and 16 SP1
Randall 14 and 16 by Jim Ankerson, on Flickr
Those are Heavy Duty knives! Great comparison photo!
The 14 is much more so though, I like the handle better as it's wider, more hand filling.
I can really see what they had in mind when they designed the 14. It's a real beast that should be able to take anything short of someone trying to break it in purpose.
I know the history behind the model and it's development and intended use. I am bias as I was in the USMC.
Love it! Just ordered one with black sheath. ETA 2025
The knife of many sheaths (NFS) - when I bought this pre-owned Randall Model 16 SP1 Fighter twenty years ago, it came with a loose-stitch Johnson Roughback sheath. That, coupled with the new FL blade stamp, indicate a mid to late 1980’s production window; or, an early version of this model.
Shown as Photo 142 on page 153 of my reference book with a high quality Kydex sheath - over the years it’s also been sheathed in black, waxed, no-hone, or some combination therein. Today, it has a new option, a recently acquired custom Sullivan’s Roughback sheath; a full-tang Model #1-7 by another name, this one fits me perfectly.
Almost hunting season so hope everyone is getting there Randall ready!!! Wanna see new pics this year. Here is a old pic but hopefully gets things rolling. This was bear season last year
