Investment Grade Scrimshaw and Engraving

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

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.

C- Skinner DBW
$$5495
C- Skinner DBW Image
This is a very special, one of a kind Randall. This tribute to D.B. Wesson, a founder of Smith & Wesson firearms, was commissioned by a Smith & Wesson Collectors Association board member. The handle is Alternate Ivory and the blade is marked "AI". As such the handle will never be subject to cracking. I've scrimshawed D.B. on the trademark side and his personal monogram, designed by Gustave Young, on the reverse. I generally only work on one side but this seemed appropriate. The engraving was done by John Pease who was a former S&W master engraver and is now a Colt master engraver. The Blade is marked D.B. Wesson, the only one of my Bowles Skinner dealer specials not to have a serial number. The one-off sheath, by Randall's sheath maker Greg Gutcher, features two different colors of Crocodile and carries the S&W logo inlayed in the toe. The back of the sheath is stamped D.B.W. and carried my dealer special stamp as well as Greg Gutcher's custom stamp. This knife was featured in an article on my work in "Distinction", a regional magazine. The article can be viewed here   http://distinctionhr.com/the-art-of-scrimshaw/

SOLD** C-Mini 25
$$4400
SOLD** C-Mini 25 Image
This miniature model #25 was the first model of the second series of Randall minis and shows the "S" adjacent to the trademark rather than the "M" found on all subsequent models. Less than 100 of the 1500 mini #25s were crafted in pre-ban Elephant ivory and I scrimshawed perhaps six of those. The scene on this mini 25, #1227, depicts me fly fishing for cutthroat trout on the Lamar River in Yellowstone National Park. The finishing touch on this rare and beautiful miniature Randall is the deep relief engraving by Ron Skaggs.
