This is a particularly interesting model #14. I had the pleasure of selling this for a Marine to benefit his father. It has several bells and whistles that might be worth discussing.

Burnie,
When I bought the knife I took it to a well known Randall Dealer & Collector.
I didn't exactly know what I had.I was apprehensive about the spacers.He assured me that all was correct,the spacers were special order.What a relief...
He dated the knife & sheath as late 60's to early 70.
Thanks for your input & my hope is this thread will take off.
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!!

Howdy guys,
I am a newer Randall collector- I have had Randall's for years but my passion exploded after I visited the Holy Land of Randall's in the "Meadows fo Dan".
I keep running across older Randall's from the seventies and early eighties with handles made from ivorite micarta? I am very partial to it and would love to have a few knives made of it. Are there any other suppliers and does/did this product go by any other name?
Thanks Everyone!
Charlie

Howdy Charlie and welcome!,
The original white paper micarta known as ivorite in the Randall catalog is no longer being manufactured and has been discontinued as a handle option on Randall Made knives. This material, affectionately known as "Old Yeller" because it yellows considerably with age, was manufactured by Westinghouse as an insulating material. Collectors place a small premium on ivorite Randalls and I scrimshawed quite a few of them back in the 1980s. Randall now offers an "Antique Gold" micarta as a handle option. I'm sure we can get folks to post images of both for you.

Top knife is "old yeller" -- bottom two are antique gold.

(That last picture was off the subject of older knives--it was just meant to demonstrate the difference in handle color. Now, back to the subject!)

Speaking of the old ivorite, here’s a black & white matched pair of knives that have a handle shape that might be of interest to some folks, even though they might not be considered really old for Randalls. (Their sheaths were different back then, too.)

Steve,
The light color on the 21 is what I have been wanting for a customer supplied handle. It is lighter than the AGM, a real "bell ringer" with me. Thanks for posting the pics.

very nice...

Probably the rarest #14 in existence. One option was never offered in combination with another on a knife of this type and still isn't to this day.

Micarta with tightening nut?
...or maybe wood with tightening nut?
