No. If my aging memory is correct he was bought RMK blades that he finished, to his standards ie) “kit” type knife. But I will get back to you tomorrow.

I know we are off topic. Joe you may be correct, Gail White was a woman. BUT the person, Gail White that built "Kit knives" from RMK was a man.

The first reference is from one of Rhett's newsletters and the second reference was from a ad Capt had for a knife.

Odd, IIRC Capt. Stanaback said Gail White that put RMK's together was a woman, but maybe my memory is failing on this one.

Joe, do you have any thoughts about the knife that started this discussion?

tom,

i would go with what Cap said, he is a bit more up to speed on these later knives. I may lean towards White, but am not certain at all. Would have to see it.

Mr. White was, indeed, a man. He included at least "1" black spacer in all of his custom-handled RMK blades as a tribute to Bo. I posted correspondence (in letter form) between Gail White & Grady McCotter a few years back on this forum...about this very subject.
"NOT" a re-handle. An authorized craftsman who was allowed to purchase Randall shop-made and shop-finished "blades only" and then handled them.
Hope this helps, Capt. Chris
PS: Blade-Show-worn...I'll be back up to speed when I get back in my shop on Tuesday!!!CCS
