Nice Knives.....

Recommended Posts

Have not had these out in many a year.....

One is a 8 Inch Randall No1, the other is a Randall No14.

My first No 1 was so mint, out of the box, I literally closed my eyes, and hacked at a chunk of wood 4-5 times... just to pop its cherry.... I had this No1 for 4 years in the army... it was really used and abused... and is thill here... around me guys were breaking their K-Kars in all directions....

The No14 was simply and purley a toy i could not afford. I bought it years after leaving the army, and actually have more knives than I will ever need, and seldom if ever need one... but the No14 for me is the best knife ever... so i traded a bunch of stuff for it....

The Handle and sheath on the No1 used to be the same color as the sheath on the no14....

What is the green bit of plastic i hear you ask... or not.....

I prefer the carbon steel blades to stainless steel.... After a very wet time in Central Africa the leather was constantly wet, so I made a sheath liner out of a plastic mountaindew bottle, cut the shape, folded it and slid it into the sheath. I also removed the sharpening stone pouch, it made it easier to slide the sheath under straps or under a belt.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
