Thank you Rob, it makes sense.
I collect bayonets and knife collecting outside of military is all new to me.
For me it was an impulse buy at $550
I think it is about the price of a new one, plus 5 years of awaiting period.

$600 is what it books for today. I don't think this knife would sell for any less as "all" hardware, blade and sheaths marking are all exactly the same as a brand new one.
Hope this helps, Capt. Chris

Militarytorch,

After the 1990's (or even earlier), its hard to pinpoint the year of production. Very little changes occur on the knife itself. That's what makes Randall Knives classic.

Sometimes, changes in the sheath, if original to the knife, can pinpoint to a range of years that the sheath exhibited that particular characteristic. For example, I believe the thread material changed for a few years in the late nineties (1997-1999?). So a knife having that sheath could be said to have been made in those years.

I'll have to rely on Scott or Captain Chris for identifying those years. You got a worthwhile purchase and investment.

To see more examples of the Model 1, look at the threads in this sub-forum, "Randall Made Knives", and click on "Knives of the week - #1-#28", then click on "RMK #1", and view over 75 pages of Model 1's in various configurations. This thread started 12 years ago and is continuing constantly.

Forgot to ask how to store the knife. In or out of the sheath?

Thank you

Never store your knife in the sheath. Really nice knife.
