I saw another one of these combos for sale tonight while buying another Randall knife. There is some sticker shock on this combo, but I say use it. In my research selecting my newest one, I have learned that everything is fixable on them. I bought a Model 16 Special Fighter tonight for no other reason than I wanted another Randall, and screw it, I have 2 jobs. I do think the Spartan Blades and Reeve knives are more practical, but they have no soul. This sounds like the time I blamed my Rolex purchase on the bad influences, here.
