    I posted a knife in the Bernard Levine knife forum and was told to talk to some Randall experts. Don't know if I should post pics here or have people look at the other thread? I'll wait a while to see what happens thanks.

    Melvin wrote he book on Randall’s, he already posted on the other thread. So unless @tunefink has anything to add. There is not a lot more to learn.

    It would be cool if you had pictures of your friend with the knife in the Navy for provenance.

    Let me help you a bit more. You asked for information and I provided it to the best of my ability. That's all I've got. I'm not trying to buy it and I'm not trying to sell you anything, I have nothing to sell. I spent a lot of time researching Randall's as a hobby, I even wrote a book about them. It's out of print, I have no more books to sell. Some people think it's a good book; copies usually sell on eBay or Amazon for around $400 to $600; I sold them for ~$70, so maybe it's a good book, maybe not; it doesn't matter, I wrote it for myself, that anyone bought it was just a bonus - the point is, I told you what I think. If your Uncle Billy-Joe-Bob thinks differently, and you want to believe him, that's fine, I don't care. It can be anything you want it to be, you can even make up a story and sell it as such, I still won't care. At the end of the day, it's your knife, so enjoy it for what it is, or isn't; it's your knife. I don't mean to come across as crass or harsh, but I get this all the time. OK, fine, it's whatever you want it to be, end of story.

    Thanks Melvin for your input which I highly respect. I gave a background on how I obtained the knife. I have no idea of the authenticity of the knife or where it came from. I don't know anything about military knives and that is why I started the thread. As a knife enthusiast I know better then be blinded by what I hope it is and what it actually is. Never asked for an appraisal or a price on the knife because its not for sale. Thanks again
