Some/most of you guys are as good at photographing knives as you are at buying them.
Beautiful photos.

Yep, it's called a nail nick. So the only things that make it a "left-handed" knife are the nick, the badge and the maker's name all being on the right side of the knife. As a lefty, I've always opened pocket knifes upside down basically so this one has taken some practice to open properly.

That second from the top is definitely not what I think of when I think of a Randall!

Really, really like it. It's big, but the shape of the handle makes it really comfortable and easy to carry. Some complain about it being hard to open but mine flips smoothly and I can use the thumbstuds just as easily. Well made. Probably could have been a bit sharper from the factory but that's not a huge deal. One of my favorites of all the foldes I have.
