As I have stated before, our Canada/USA border has been closed since March 2020 and only opened November 8 to us Canadians, if we were driving to the USA..

In 2019, I ordered a Model 5 from Greg Gutcher. Our forum member Tomthebomb was kind enough to contribute a piece of orange handle material. Greg also made me a one off sheath. This was before he quit taking custom orders.

The whole package arrived in our NY state mail box, a few days before the border closed, but I did not get down to get it. 20 months later(this past Monday) I finally got the knife.

THANK YOU, Greg and Tom

Rod, that is nice! My next new Randall was going to be a single guard 15. It may be a 5 after seeing this one.
