Then your buddy got lucky or he's a GI getting ready to ship out to the sand box. I think they will expedite orders for servicemen. Both of my last 2 Randall's took over 5 years each, just like the estimate they gave me. They only require a $50 deposit, if I remember correctly. It's a pleasant surprise when they show up.

I can only repeat what the owner of that knife store told me Joe. I never ordered a Randall so I have no idea, although I have to admit that I thought the wait was only about two years at present.

I typed my response to Joe before I read your post Bruce. Your statement lends credibility to what the lady who owns that store in AZ told me.

Nice find Joe.

I'm getting a Randall delivered this month, ordered 3 years ago. Just a plain old APFK 1-7.

Yes you are correct. They have a special program for deploying servicemen. It is limited to a few models and options and require name etching of the buyer. Over the last decade, I have gotten a knife for my son while he was deployed. And I got one for myself during my final deployment.

I just left the Randal website and order form. They have a notification posted that every order made now is looking at a 6 year delivery time.

There are used Randall's out there. My brother knows the market well and did pioneering research on dating Randalls. In fact j0e quoted Jacknola's own research back to us. But as usual when buying from a dealer or off the internet, caveat emptor. If one of DGS posters finds something he's interested in, I'd be happy to have twin brother take a look and give an opinion. He really is an "expert."

I actually had another Randall authority take a look at the pictures he pretty much said the same thing as Jacknola early 1960's with the addition that he thought the Bowie might possibly be older...I then told him what Jacknola said along with his internet name and he offered no argument.

Ps...I missed the Vietnam war by a couple years I just wanted to say thanks for you and your brothers service to our country.
