Few modern knifemakers got started without first being inspired by something they read or heard about Bo Randall. He pioneered handmade knives at a time when no one else was even considering it. Instead of trying to keep that market to himself, he promoted the business for everyone concerned, establishing a museum for visitors in his shop and offering encouragement to budding knifemakers. The models offered by Randall have been developed over a period of 80 years from personal experience, extensive research and the study of hundreds of designs submitted by individuals around the world requesting custom-made knives.
Each model has been thoroughly field-tested and has proven to be properly shaped and designed for its particular use. Demand is so great for all models that there is typically a wait of a few years to deliver a new knife ordered from Randall. Bo and his son Gary managed the business side by side for over twenty-five years. Gary continues the tradition of hand crafting knives that bear the Randall Made trademark along with his sons, Jason and Michael, of the next Randall generation.
