Congrats on the new blade. I'm in the "use it" camp.
Bought my Model 16 back in '77 and then dragged it around the world over the course of a long field career. It has a few dings and decades of honest wear... but it still draws immediate attention when it comes out of the sheath. I only "retired" it when I decided I didn't want somebody to purloin it off my KIA or CASEVACed ass late in the GWOT. Started carrying something more easily replaced instead.
My first observations of Randall knives were from seeing them swinging on various owners' Ranger Batt LBE... and getting employed as working tools in the field. After seeing them perform, I had to have one. Anyway, Randalls are built to use and they have personalities. If you listen carefully to the quiet and steely soul of your blade, it's begging to slice, stab, and cut something. It was actually made for that. Listen to it.
