Buck,

Any chance we could see the rest?
Posted by: Buck Buchanan

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 08/13/16 09:53 PM

I would have to move the gun cabinet containing a couple dozen like-new Griffin & Howe rifles, two of which are "1 of 4", to access the rest of the collection that remains, so far, "untouchable". Then, there are the 300+ Winchester Model 42 shotguns to contend with. I'm still trying to get to the 400+ Daniel WInkler buckskinning Knives that are "kinda" in the way.

He came to Blade this year, and after introducing him to Gary Clinton & Wayne Buxton, he spent $15,000 between them.

I would like to get in there to photograph the Brass-back Randall Bowies in the collection. I told him he needs to publish a coffee table book on the collection.

I wish money was no object with me

Anyone know what happened to David Lee's collection of Bear Bowies that he would show at the Blade Shows?
That was a great collection that Rick Ward and David Lee worked on for years.
I regret I did not take pictures of his display. Maybe someone here did.

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 08/14/16 01:32 PM

I am putting a short (very short) story together for "KNIFE KNEWS" about this knife. Won't let any cats out of the bag just yet...but I owned it "twice"! I'm keeping it, this time!
Stay sharp, Capt. Chris

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 08/14/16 01:49 PM

Cap
I notice the back of the sheath is stamped 12 7 where the standard Bear is 12 8, so is the Bear smaller or the sheath mis-stamped? Curious minds want to know

Talked to Rick about it at Blade, last he heard the family kept it.
Posted by: Captain Chris Stanaback

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 08/14/16 02:00 PM

It's #12-7". I had Greg make the custom sheath, out of some Ostrich hide of mine he had down at his shop. Originally, no sheath was provided. My late friend, Dave Griffin, had placed this knife in my "drawer" for me, prior to me becoming a dealer. Of course, becoming an authorized dealer nixes any cool, one-offs, Randalls being held in a drawer for me....(Rats!) I'm not complaining...just takin' a trip down memory lane!
Best, Capt. Chris

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 08/14/16 02:06 PM

Posted by: W Polidori

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 09/01/16 09:47 AM

Ron,

This from the 12 Knife of the week thread. A quote from Gaddis.

.The first order for this knife [Bear Bowie] was recorded in the journal on 6 February 1964, with nine more orders following during the next six months. This is quite impressive for one of the most expensive Randall models, especially when it wasn't even listed in the current catalog! These orders... appear to have been the direct result of one magazine article.... in the February 1964 issue of†ArgosyMagazine....

So was this one of the first from eearliest vintage?
Posted by: BoBlade

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 09/01/16 09:57 AM

It may be Warren, but there is no way to know for sure. The sheath certainly looks like an early Johnson, but in 1964 it should have baby dots.

Best,

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 01/24/17 06:56 PM

Boomer your 1st best destiny on ox is to get in contact with Duke.
He cures them then shapes them in a cylinder & then sends them to be to be stabilized.
This way you can get a uniform color without the white if you want.
I.E. like buying center cut ivory back in the day.
Just a little FYI fact.

Once, there were three bears.......................


The desert ironwood coming out of the Shop is very respectable, and has been.


The middle "Bear", SS, brass & black spacers, ironwood, brass butt cap, wrist thong,

is flanked by a pair of matching "Bears", SS, scalloped collar, ironwood, scalloped "Coolie" butt cap.

Fabulous Trio,,

The handles are Fantastic but what truly fascinates me is the blade grinds look identical but are .000? miles apart.They look identical but every RMK is unique.

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 12/08/17 08:37 PM

It's more brownish in color, at first I thought it may be old yellow micarta, but it doesn't seem yellow enough, not sure about the variation in color in the old micarta. Just not sure what it is, any ideas ?

Just my thoughts, Capt. Chris
Posted by: Dirty_Water

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 11/18/18 11:23 PM


"Sorry Ronnie, but it fit when it left the shop...bend the back of the sheath away from the blade some and see if that helps..."

"there is no way this left this bad of a fit...just no way...must be other semantics some where"

"Scott there are pictures showing the knife in both ways. (I know the correct way to stick a Randall in itís sheath.) I posted all the photos to show that It wouldnít fit."

"The sheath sucks and anything they send me to replace it will suck."

I'm with Cap on this one, I called BS and was called out on it.
Posted by: Ronnie

Re: Bring On Da Bears - 11/19/18 03:23 AM

Scott I made a mistake......a big mistake. I COULD NOT SEE the parachord knots blocking the guard.....even when I bent the sheath. Am I embarrassed about my mistake.....of course. Does that make me like the current Sheaths supplied with Randall Made Knive any better.....no. The quality, to me just isnít there. Remember I had another knife that didnít fit in the sheath. I did send that one back and a replacement sheath was made for me. Why didnít that one fit? I donít know.....it had no parachord on it. Thatís all beside the point. That isnít gonna change and I guess I should just get over that because that apparently isnít important to Gary.
I made a mistake. I am sorry for causing a stir. Thatís it.

How the hell did you people get that I was saying itís Garyís fault.....how did you figure that out Scott! In the immortal words of the fella that sold Gump his boat.....Ēare you stupid or somethingĒ? In the final analysis it doesnít matter what I think about the Sheaths supplied with Randall Knives. It doesnít matter what Chris thinks, or even what Rhett thought. It only matters what Gary thinks and he likes them just fine. So bitching isnít gonna change anything. That is what I was saying.

This pair of Bear Bowies arrived Saturday for my local customer, who focuses on Model 12-8's. I think these brings him up to 84 Bears.

These two are sporting nickel-silver "furniture", and David Warther's resin ivory, "S" grade. Impressive handle material.
