Early Randall 7 spacer Model 23 Gamemaster

I recently aquired an early Randall 7 spacer model 23 gamemaster.
This model was developed in late 1971 or early 1972 and first appears in the 22nd printing Randall catalog in 1972.
This gamemaster is an early example, as the spacer count on non-leather handles went from 7 to 5 in 1972.

It's fun trying to find early examples of any particular Randall model you like.

Regards, Sam G.

Thanks Bill. The model 23 is a fine knife. I gave my first one to my son for graduation from Coast Guard basic training 7 years ago.

Terrific find Sam!

I love the the stag and the seven spacers makes it a very special knife.

Here's my Game Master:
















Hope y'all like.

Cheers!

David

Hey David,
That's a fine looking 23! The mod 23 is one of my favorites. The one I gave my son was one that I had for some time. I'm not going to be using this 7 spacer 23, but I'm looking for another mid 70's user to replace the one I gave to him.
The hunt is the fun part!
Regards, Sam

Thanks Sligo. It feels very good in the hand, with good heft with the 1/4" thick blade. Great design.
Thanks, Sam
