Liked 5, Times in 1, Posts chief, I’ll copy the pertinent information from the book I have: After the patent was granted, the blade stamp changed to Pat’d. The patent ran out in However, judging from the scarcity of marked specimens, it does not appear the mark went much beyond Thumb rest styling changed from the original checkering to a fine file back circa , a comb back circa and finally to no thumb rest in New Century production.

My latest Gerber Mk-II purchase. Yes my wife is going to kill me, but there are somethings a man has to do You can almost see the outline in the image. If they wanted a sterile knife, why then would they add the SF crest? Perhaps they added it later in retirement? The serial number places the date of manufacture in This is long after Vietnam but there were other conflicts aplenty to go fight in.
No grey handled knives at that late date. It looks like the same person sanded off the black finish in the middle of the handle to make it look like a gray handle. Maybe they just didn’t like the basic black look and in could not buy a grey one. A quick lick with a diamond hone had the edges ready to slice and dice again. Valor Knives made some fair quality replicas, in the day. Whomever performed the work did a superb job of grinding the blade.

Well, a little history here to clarify before I go on then First and foremost, I’m a shooting enthusiast The main focus being on. Unfortunately, the ‘political climate’ here currently doesn’t lend itself well to free range shooting of said weapons.

About , Your Case Knife Master Dealer
Although he was horrified at the use to which it was being put, Randall admired the knife so much that he decided to make himself one like it. He did, and someone asked to buy it. After this happened several times in succession, Randall thought that it might be a good idea to produce these handcrafted works of art on a regular basis. In , he founded Randall Made Knives. In doing so, he quite probably also founded the entire benchmade knife business as we know it today.
Today for sale we have a WWII era Randall Made Model 1 knife. This knife was manufactured when Randall knives was still custom making knives in Springfield Massachusetts. As you can see in the pictures thisknife has been through a lot.
Why is the Star of David on the sword of the Marines? Anyone with a historical note on this. This is what I found: The above reference comes from JewishMarines. If the sword is made by the Wilkinson Sword Company the Star of David is on the hilt because the company was founded by a Jew, and the swords made by the direct descendants all have the Star of David on the hilt. Are either of the above known to be true or are they urban legends?? I have no source documentation to compare this with.
Not even the “Old Guard” has that privilege.
