The Springfield knives were made from WWI vintage bayonets. They were obviously reforged from the bayonets.

The subject knife never came from Bo Randall or the Randall shop. Larsen had a couple hundred I think it was left over blades probably in various stages of completion after he ceased production. Some were put together by him. My guess this was a raw bayonet blade put together.

Bo did handle a bayonet and it is in one of Hunt's books I believe, so it is not impossible to consider it. Unfortunately the handle and spacers on this one are not Randall.
