Randall Model 16 Special Fighter
with Border Patrol Handle
The Model 1 is still Randall's most popular model. As has been the case since the 1940s, when Bo Randall made knives for World War II troops, they still focus very heavily on soldiers going into active combat. Any time I get into a discussion about Randall knives with a group of troops, either 20 years old or 70 years old, one of them will have a story about how they either visited the Randall shop, wrote a letter or made a phone call, and Randall managed to get a knife to them before they were deployed.
The Model 16SP #1 is a variation of that original Model 1. This is a serious knife with a 7" blade of 1/4" stainless steel with a Border Patrol handle of Green Linen Micarta® and a brass double guard. The top edge of the blade is sharpened approximately 3". (Can be special ordered with top edge unsharpened.) Measures 11-1/2" tip to butt and weighs 14.0 oz. Includes a model A leather sheath with stone pouch on the front. No one includes a higher quality sheath with their knives than Randall. Handmade in the U.S.A.
(5-2017) Due to Randall's high volume of orders, if not on our shelves when you order, delivery of Randall knives ordered from A. G. Russell is currently taking 7-8 months. If ordered directly from Randall the wait is currently about 5 years.
