Late 50's bowie sold to Tom Clinton FOUND !!!

I know this is a stretch, but I would like to find a 12-9 bowie sold to Tom Clinton at the Blade show in Atlanta around yr 2002. Not looking to purchase, but to get a pic of it. I had digital pics and printed out some, but all have vanished over the years. Believe me, I have looked and looked on my computers and in my paper work. I have a letter from Gary Randall describing this knife and that there were only a handful made in this configuration. I will try to post a copy of it. The only info not included was the handle which was ebony, black with just a small portion of white showing. It was a border patrol handle. How would I best go about finding this one?

Edit. Gary Clinton recognized the knife from my description and sent some pics.


Charlie

Hard to believe but Gary Clinton remembered this knife, found it in his collection and sent me a couple pics. I have looked many many times around here for a pic, but could never locate one. Thank You GARY for digging this one up.

That's a great looking knife. Love the guard! Thanks for pulling it up Charlie. Yes, Gary Clinton has a great memory and is a great asset to the Randall community.

Kind of reminds me of this one that was sold in 1991 by Rhett Stidham. From the Britt Brown/Jack Crider collection.

According to Pete Hamilton, it was the "S" curved hilt in nickel silver that stood out. I was hoping someone would post a pic of the rest of the "handful" they made. Gary Randall's letter says very few, and Pete gave me a number of 4.

Thanks Sam
