    Default Randall Made Knife

    I just bought a Randall Made Knife from a guy at work for 50 bucks tonight. Anyone know about these knives? I know it's stainless and their web site states 440 series, but they don't state if it's A B or C. Just wondering for edge retention and sharpening.

    I've heard about these knives but never owned one. As far as i know they are a good brand. Usually when it's said 440 stainless steel it is A, because the maker is shy to admit that it's not 440C However the type of steel isn't so important, no matter what the knife maniacs say. In a normal use an ordinary user can't feel the difference between most of the modern steels (except between stainless and carbon). What really matters is the heat treatment. Good luck with the knife and if you can make a pic I'd like to see it.

    I had the same thought gravedigger. My guess would be 440C, but even on their web site they don't say what series stainless they use. The one I bought has some scratches on the blade so I may just have to ask Randall as I intend to have them buffed out.

    Thanks, I still can't believe the guy sold it to me for 50 dollars. While I was looking to see what steel they use I did read that you can order them direct from Randall for close to half the general market price. The kicker with direct ordering one is they take five years to get them to your door. Would I pay 500 dollars for one? Nope, but it sure is the nicest 50 dollar knife I will ever own. This will be going to one of my grandsons.

    Very nice knife, Chip. Congratulations! And the best is that you've taken it for a 10th of the price. For 500$ i guess it is 440C steel. If it has scratches you can polish it.
