Randall Model ID Help Requested
 
I am currently in the process of digitally cataloging a very large knife collection for a friend and colleague. It is primarily for the purpose of insurance appraisal. Most of his collection is very nice folders but his fixed knife collection is also pretty stunning. Among the fixed knives, he has several Randalls. I am unable to identify the Models of the two pictured below. These may be easy to identify but I did not see them as current Models on the Randall site. Forgive me, but I am not a collector. Thank you for any help!

Both have "418" stamped on the spines.

Dealer Special. Doesn't have a Randall Model number, only a name. A.G. Russell Special, as it says on the sheath.

There were several limited edition variations.

Somebody on eBay is selling them as Model 11-3", which they are not.

These are AG Russell exclusive Randall models. He is an authorized dealer and he periodically has Randall do a run with various handle materials. The number is basically the identifier i.e. #418 out of the run - probably 500 pieces for these. The blade style in this case is exclusive to AG Russell.
