Who knows..."BUT"...a baby dot Sullivans sheath with, "no signs of paracord" ever being included, would make me suspect. Also: It's an aftermarket (STAR) marked Sullivans sheath with inferior leather standards, according to the definition of Sullivans "STAR" marked sheaths. It never left the shop with that sheath...EVER!
Also: The wrist thong drilling, along with the method used to cut the finger grips were "rushed", which you cannot do with G-10. (& RMK doesn't "rush anything")! Just look at the "burn marks" in said areas of the handle!
For "all-of-the-above" reasons, I would be satisfied to say, Caveat Emptor, to any buyers on this one. There's no way this is Randall Made!
Just sayin', (& hope this helps)
Stay Sharp, Capt. Chris

Almost looks like a 14 that was getting passed around the Tulsa show a few years ago.
Maybe someone got stuck with it and decided to clean up the handle a bit better, still falling short.

Probably should clarify the the blade is 100% RMK, but the fabrication of the knife is not. Could it be a re-handle, a stolen blade? Most likely the latter.

Re-handles "still" have the correct leather. This one? Not-so-much...
Best, Capt. Chris
