COMMENTS - This knife is unique because it is an Orlando blade with a Springfield made butt cap. Bo Randall accepted 100 butt caps and nuts from Larson as partial payment for his royalties. Orlando blades with Springfield butts are one of 100.... RARE!!! This is detailed in the Gaddis book on page 101.
