**SOLD** Ronald Reagan RBS

$6500

**SOLD** Ronald Reagan RBS Image
During my thirty-six years with Randall knives there has occasionally been an incident or individual that I wanted to commemorate with a one-off scrimshaw project. When Ronald W. Reagan passed on June 5, 2004 I knew he would be my next commemoration.
This special Randall is my discontinued Rick Bowles Special (RBS). The knife features pre-ban Elephant ivory, a nickel silver hilt with metal and black spacers and a nickel silver butt cap that is inlayed with the Presidential Seal. This is the only RBS not to carry a serial number and instead is etched Ronald Reagan 1911-2004. For the scrimshaw I chose the iconic image of Reagan wearing his Stetson and assigned the work serial number RB #1026. The front of the custom sheath by Greg Gutcher is covered in padded "Republican" Elephant hide and embedded with the Presidential Seal. The back of the sheath carries my Randall-Rick Bowles Special stamp, Greg Gutcher's custom stamp and "R.W.R.
Additionally, this one-off Randall comes with a first edition copy of Reagan's autobiography "An American Life" autographed in book plate. These sold out long ago but a few copies are still available at the Reagan Library priced at $4,000.00.
