This guarded design dealer special features a 4-1/2 inch stainless steel blade forged from 1/4 inch stock. The single nickel silver hilt is accentuated by the metal and black spacers. The reverse trademark side of the blade is etched Bowles Skinner #298. This handle material is a center section of the finest, pre-ban premium Elephant ivory obtainable. The front of the custom two-tone Sullivan's sheath carries my Randall Made-Rick Bowles Special stamp on the toe and I've signed and dated the back.

All natural handle materials are subject to checking and/or cracking under extremes of temperature and humidity. As such natural materials are not guaranteed.

We make every effort to mitigate the chance of ivory cracking during shipment. Once the knife is shipped we no longer have any control over it. The customer may specify by which method the knife is shipped, Ground (UPS), Air (Priority Mail) or Overnight (USPS). Extra shipping charges may be incurred for expedited shipping. 

All the African Elephant ivory from which these Randall Made knife handles were crafted pre-dates the ivory ban of 1989. Additionally these knives, handled with pre-ban African Elephant ivory, qualify for the de minimis exemption of the current USFWS ivory restrictions and may be traded in interstate commerce. While these ivory Randall knives are completely legal it’s important to note there will be no more Elephant ivory handled Randalls crafted at the shop after July 6, 2016.
