I have deleted the catalogue list on page eight and re-posted the updated catalogue here. There are now 47 known Delrin-handled RMKs listed in the line.

Summary: There have been 47 different Delrin-handled Randall knives featured in this discussion (though many have multiple pictures): five model 1s; eight model 2s; three model 3s; one model 6; four model 7s; one model 8; sixteen model 12s (various types); five model 13s, one model 14 Kit, one model 19, one model 21, and one altered blade (?) unknown model, (possibly a customer cut-down m10 with guard and special handle...some of which are thought to have been made in shop).

There are also lots of pictures of other knives etc. that were part of the Delrin discussion and/or derivative subjects (including escutcheon plate dating and model 3 sheath anomalies), etc. But as to the primary subject, this line probably has the largest collection of pictures, dating, and data, about Delrin handled Randall knives ever assembled in one spot.

Here is a Cliff-notes catalog pictorial summary of the Delrin-handled knives pictured thus far in this line. Updated as of 2-20-2019












I don't think I can add additional references to this catalogue because each post can only have 10 pictures and I've used up most of the space in my master file. Also, I am too burnt to add the page references to the master catalogue indication where the detailed pictures of each knife can be found in this line of posts. However, every knife in the catalogue does have additional detailed pictures.

I will not update this master again. Just post new knives and mention that they are not referenced in the catalogue.

Bill I didn't have a decent full-knife picture of either of your Feisal knives so just cobbled together something from the rather long range photo you posted of the two of them.... LOL.

Such a great variety of knives that can be found here is rather interesting to pay attention at. Thank you!

After careful evaluation, another Delrin handled 13-12 was just sold on E-bay. It is shown below. I'm not updating the numerical data in the catalog as yet because I think a 13-12 mentioned by Bill as part of a Delrin Faisal set is actually a later white or old yellow marcarta handle, not Delrin. I probably just misunderstood the original post from TBill. ... so this RMK Delrin handled 13-12 will replace the other one in the catalog. If the other one is indeed Delrin, I would need some close up pictures to confirm.

Mine was without a doubt a Delrin handle. I do know the difference.

Hi Bill!

Are you referring to very recent posts you have made on the Randall forum or earlier ones?

In any case you should know that moderators on all KN forums receive an email whenever someone posts on the specific forum that they moderate. These emails include the original unedited posts and a direct link to the forum for viewing.

Aside from your post about some of yours having been deleted, I have not received any emails with a post from you since February 1. This was the one about your Tom Leschorn embellished Shaw-Leibowitz Special. It's still there on the forum.

Maybe there was some technical error that occurred when you tried to post. Other than this, like Ron I'm afraid I have know idea what happened.

Please try again whenever you can.

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

David

On page two are four posts with the most definitive information about Delrin as a knife handle material of any on the internet. These posts cover the following:

1. Pictures of a circa 1960-'61 RMK model 3 with Delrin handle, possbily first Delrin handled knife, ever;

2. Pictorial and discussion of chronology of RMK model 3s from late '50s to early '60s;

3. Pictorial and discussion of chronology of Delrin handled RMKs from 1960 - early '70s;

4. Discusion of history of Delrin as a product

First, some posts that lay the groundwork including pictorials and presentation of some Delrin or "Ivorite" handled RMKs.
Sir (Jacknola)

I believe I am not allowed to Private Message or either I am too used to Bladeforums to figure out the system here, so could I bother you to post a visitor message on my profile so I can give you my email? I am very interested in interviewing you for a book I am writing about the stories of SF soldiers from Vietnam.

I know my account looks fishy, joining today and all, however I am very active on Bladeforums and you can find me under the same username over there for confirmation.

I apologize to the rest of you for making this a public post. As I previously stated I believe I'm unable to send messages or I'm too dumb to figure it out

I’ll be happy to share but let me send a private message to your account. I just tried and received a message that you are not allowing messages OR your account isn’t actively receiving them. You may To have a period of time to elapse before you can receive personal messages. That applies to listing pictures as well.

My email is Jacknola@cox.net.

I have a few things but more importantly I have a small group of long time SF friends that collectively have extensive memories, including my twin brother (MACVsog), a two tour gunship pilot who flew for NACVsog and has actual 8mm film he took while in air-ground battles over the trail, a retired Doctor who spent 44 months in SEAsia, two SF-Vietnam friends that went on to have long time op-branch careers in the Agency around the world.

You might find a fictional story I wrote on this board (see “The Magic Randall” story at bottom of first page of that same-named line located down the topic list on this board) instructive as many of the events described are factual and me, twin, or other close friends had those experiences. regards

Just sent an email to the one you provided. Apologize for the delay.
Thanks again sir.
