Randall made is Springfield?

What's up with this knife? Looks like a #1. Any idea how old it is? When were Randalls made in MA?

Hi Jerry,


There were roughly 1200 of these made in '43/'44 by a guy named Larson under licence from Bo. Most were assembed by Northhampton Cutlery in Northhampton, Ma. (Larson lived in Springfield). The sheath were made by a company named Mosser. If you have Mr. Gaddis' book, there is a nice write up on them.

Best,

Ron
