  • Hello

    Hi all
    I am Andrew from Melbourne VIC, I just joined today as I am looking at getting a couple of knifes and surfed upon this site.
    I am a collector of things but never considered myself a collector of knifes untill I put together what I had, it turns out I have a dozen or so knifes, mostly in boxes from the 90s, a couple of used folders etc.

    What I dont have is larger fixed blade knifes so this is where I'm looking. So far I have decided on a Randall #14 and also looking at some or thier other models such as the # 1 - 7, I have contacted customs about the #14 and all seems ok to import from the US, still waiting on what they say about the Randall #1.

    My aim is to get myself a nice user (fishing, camping etc) and a couple for my collection, which will be the above mentioned knifes. So happy to have joined and looking forward to checking out this forum

          Thanks Peter, the ones in boxes are Case Folders and a couple of swiss army in boxes. The knife that sits on my desk at home and gets used for pretty much everything is a well worn Benchmade, I do have a couple of unusual knifes which I will post pics on when I can.

                  Welcome to the forum and your new addiction.

                  Both those Randalls should be fine to bring in, but it's always safe to check with ACS.
                  Then you've got choices and options to think about...

                    Gday Andy, welcome to the Abf, going straight to the top shelf with Randalls. I know of one serious Randall collector in Melbourne , so they do turn up locally as well.

                          Our very own Ausblade has one of the biggest collections of Randalls I've seen anywhere!
