I carry a Randall Model 14 quite often. I love Randall knives, and am working on getting a model 1-7 as my next one.
I first wanted a model 15 when I was about 12 or 13 years old (1965-6). I couldn't afford one then so I could just dream. Fast forward 40 years. Finally I could afford one. So I was able to buy two model 15's. A brand new 1990 SS and a 1970 or so Solingen humpback. They were both purchased for a total of $600.00. The humpback was in pretty mint condition but the sheath had a lot of wear. Could have been used in Vietnam, don't know. Then I bought a model 14 and a mini model 14. I just can't get enough Randall's or knives in general. As an aside, the only sheath knife that I could afford when I was 12 years old was a Buck 120. I bought it and many years later lost it. Just yesterday I was a a fleamarket and found a Buck 120 in excellent condition. I paid exactly what I paid for that original 120, $20.00. Now if I had been able to purchase a Randall mod. 15 that would have appreciated in value many times over, compared to the Buck 120. Any knife I get is welcomed. Can't get enough of them.
