Looks more like a Model #1 -- the Model #5 doesn't have the depressed area shown here:

You're right, I didn't zoom in enough. Model 1 with a single hilt, not often seen in one that old.

Thanks for the replies. So it could be a No. 1. Has anyone seen an old No. 1 without a blade stamp?

It's not a Randall and the sheath is not a Johnson.

I have seen a few counterfeits that are similar. Sorry,

I agree it is the wrong sheath for the knife but it has the Randall Made Knives Orlando Fla stamp on it. The knife has no stamp but it is an old knife. I didn't know they made forgeries 50 years ago.

Does anyone know if Randall made any knives for the US Gov't either CIA or FBI agencies decades ago and had them parkerised? Just a story I heard. Maybe not a relevant question.

My shop near Fort Bragg, Cumberland Knife & Gun Works, parkerized and bead blasted dozens and dozens of fighters and 14's, 15's, & 18's for the first Gulf War in the early '90's.

This knife "&" sheath is/are a blatant forgery. My understanding is (a few years back) that a bunch were faked and shipped from Russia. RMK blade stamps are known to exist,as well, even one by a well-known maker, and were/are used.
Caveat Emptor,
Hope this helps,
Capt. Chris
