The Thunderstreak is my tribute to one of my favorite knives of all time, the Randall model 15 Airman. I've love the Randall 15 from the day I first set eyes on it, especially the early models. 

    I took the key features of the Randall 15 and blended them to my blade style and came up with the Thunderstreak. The blade itself is based off of the Gascoande and Green river design style, the handle and tang style come from the Randall Airman. The Thunderstreak has saw teeth, sharpened front clip, double guard, mortised handle and an exposed tang as standard features. You can order one with no saw teeth, sharp front clip and a single guard if you'd like however. 

     In thicker stock like 3/16" or 1/4", this knife is a tank, combine that with a varied grind or even a near full height and you'll have a tank that cuts like a laser. I really love this thing and can't wait to build one for myself. 

     The knife is named after the F-84 Thunderstreak, one of the coolest jets of the cold war era.
