I was at the Hattiesburg gunshow , I had made a knife similiar to the one above for a Dr. out of Texas, the price was $1000.00 a few years ago, there were a couple of knife critics standing at my my table telling me everything that was in their opinion wrong. The Dr. walked up, looked at it and laid $600 down and handed me a new randal #17 in the box and wanted to know if that would even the score. Of course my critics were red faced and hauled butt. I accepted it, but things got better about an hour later a fellow walked up and spotted the Randall, ( my god a new one) how did you get it? I told him that a fellow just traded it to me for one of my knives, he said---- (no offense but was he an idiot). Just have to take it in stride!!
