Hey everybody, first post here. I've always liked knives since my cub scout days, and have some Buck folders (112, 110) and a Buck fixed blade #120 (discontinued). I was planning on buying a spyderco folder since I handled a dragonfly, but then became entranced by their fixed blades, and then noticed spyderco sold Randalls, and then did some research on them, and...
Pow! I bought a new Randall Model #1-7" from a dealer. Impluse buy. It's sooo nice I'm afraid to use it. It's a carbon steel/leather handle jobber. Really, really nice. Absurdly nice. ~$540.
So, the second-thought demon is whispering in my ear. Does a slightly overweight web designer really deserve this knife? Should I sell it and get a Temperance 2 and pocket $350?
I'm wondering if anyone here can give me a comparison between the Temperance 2 and the Randall #1. For instance, my Randall balances right on the hilt. It's pretty weighty when I swing it. I can choke right up on it (can you do that on the Temperance, btw? It looks like you might). This is the type of comments I'm looking for.
