The other day, I was looking at Randalls on eBay and came across an "original" knife and sheath that is 100% not authentic. I contacted the seller, but he was certain it was the real deal. He offered to send it to the shop if I paid shipping. I told him that wasn't necessary and the knife could be easily verified on the Randall forum by several experts, long-time collectors, and Scott Maynard, Randall Shop Foreman.

I invited him to make a post or I would be happy to do it for him and report back. He has suspended the auction. The seller is a gentleman and wants to do the right thing. Let's give him the same respect.

Thanks!

Knife...and sheath are 100% forgeries! It is my understanding that many of these knives were coming out of Russia. I have no proof of this but have had a dozen or so sent to me, over the past 5-7 years.
Caveat Emptor! I wish I had better news for the seller but this is it.
Hope this helps, Capt. Chris

Thanks Captain. I agree with you. Hopefully, Scott will chime in to concur with your evaluation for the seller's peace of mind.

The seller removed it until he got more information. You can still view it in the link above.
