Randall Military Models: Fighters, Bowies and Full Tang Knives: Hunt, Robert E.: Books –
He began, like many later custom knife makers, by making a knife by hand for his own use. As an avid outdoorsman, Bo put serious effort in to the design and fabrication of his knives, which he strove to make both simple and elegant. Before long, local demand for his knives developed and he was selling his hand made knives at his father-in-law’s clothing store in Orlando, Florida. For Bo Randall, knife making was still an avocation; his real job was managing the family citrus groves.
However, the onset of the Second World War changed Bo’s little business forever. He described it thusly:. When his friends saw it, they placed orders, their friends placed orders, my knives were used in combat, a reporter wrote a story and. With demand so strong, it was tempting to develop mass production methods. Randall Made has been blessed with management continuity. Bill Platts joined Randall in January and stayed for 35 years, most of that time as Shop Manager, before retiring.
Bo died in and control passed to his son Gary, who had been slowly taking responsibility for daily operations. Gary is an American Bladesmith Society member. Today, Gary’s sons Jason and Michael are the third generation of Randall knife makers actively involved in the family business and Randall Made is the biggest name in hand made knives. Randall knives are not mass produced and all Randall knives are made to order.

In the line dedicated to Model 1 APFK, I noted a certain knife was dated later than its accompanying sheath based on the stamp on the blade. I later posted the proof and research data elsewhere on line for personal reasons. Now I’d like to share it here because I’ve become confident enough that I find myself using the information. This “forge-date” does not indicate when the blades were finished into knives, sheathed and sold, only when they were hot stamped with the Randall Made, Orlando, FLA trademark.
Please examine these three groups of pictures of blade stamps. In this last picture below is one anomaly. It is a stamp on a blade that is earlier than the date of the sheath and other knife characteristics. Can you spot which one it is? This illustrates how this information could be both interesting and useful Summary: From earliest, the Randall stamp on the blade remained seemingly unchanged.
