I could not find a place to introduce myself. Please move, or delete, as needed.

New member, here. Although a long time knife enthusiast I did not get into knife collecting- Randallís and Treeman/Behring knives- until 2016. Work has absorbed most of my life, up to that point. I served in the Marine Corps and am still an active duty LEO; who will be starting my 33rd year of service on 9/11/2021.

I enjoy all Randall Made knives, especially stag handled ones. I am currently waiting to receive a Glades Hunter prototype, one of 10- if I understand the numbers right- that I was just able to latch on to!

I had one of the prototype sets with Certificates of Authenticity.
Perry Miller of Spaceport Cutlery and Captain Chris Stanaback, the south's largest authorized Randall dealer, came up with the idea.
They were Model 4-6" Stainless Steel Blades with Model 6 Grinds, Square Nickel Silver Single Hilts, Black/Aluminum Spacers, One with Straight Stag Handle and the other with Crown Stag Handle, and came with Gutcher custom made Gator Sheaths.
There were 5 Prototype sets made, so a total of 10 knives.
You may have to check with Capt. Chris to see how many numbered knives were made.
I think if you scroll through the Knife of the Week Model 4 thread, there should be more information.
Enjoy this world of collecting!

Thank you, for the information! From what I can tell this knife was part of a prototype set, that has been broken up. It is the regular, not crown, stag version with the Gutcher Glades Hunter- GATR sheath.
