So I chickened out. And I fucked myself yet again. Between losing the Hoback and getting this Randall today, my knife luck is suspect at best.
The layaway program at AZCK should be illegal. WAY too easy to buy expensive knives. So since I decided I didn't want to use the Model 14, I got a Model 16 Special Fighter today. It's beautiful......but too small for my hands. The finger grooves don't help for sure but overall the length of the handle and its thickness are a bit shy for me.
Too bad because it is beautiful. Light and very handy. Came with a minty brown sheath. I did buy two really cool Randall marked nylon cases to store them in because I don't keep them in the sheaths.
