    Edit to add-09-2013]:
    This is #6, and the last of the first generation from what Iz is saying now. So, do I want a second gen, or a Z-sere, or a boonie, or a Raider knife, or....? Decisions, decisons.
    Iz, you are changing the lineup faster than we can get the knives. Make more knives, not more choices !!

    Iz, I was just looking through the new version of the catalog. There are a lot of cool new designs (like the Raider Bowie, the Paramarine, and now the Boonie), but I still think the next one I hope to get is a Mississippi. I see that you say that you've made some tweaks to the design.

    So I'm wondering if you could expand on what all you've changed and maybe even what your thinking was in the redesign. Thanks, as always.

    Looks like it has more of a pronounced drop point like a green river

    They were so minute I don't remember exactly what all I changed honestly. The biggest change was that it's slightly wider over all. Maybe by a 1/16".
    Other things you can kind of see in the comparison pic in the catalog. Like Dcycleman said, it has slightly more edge drop than the old one. And if you look at the pommel area, you can see that there's not as much of a pronounced hook where your pinky finger would go.
    That's about it I think. I just kind of tweak things every now and then either to make it more aesthetically pleasing to me or sometimes to make it easier to work with on my machinery even. Thanks for the kind words about the new designs, bro. I appreciate it.

    Thanks for the insight, Iz. I can see some of the differences between the knives, but I'm never sure which ones are the normal slight variations that occur in hand-making a knife and which ones are design tweaks. So that's why I asked. New or old, the Mississippi is a great looking knife, so unless GreyOne decides to sell me his, I expect it will be the next one I order (even though that new Boonie design is calling my name pretty loudly).

    Great looking work all around.

    Thanks, bro! I know you've had your sights set on a mississippi for a while now so I don't blame you for sticking with it. I wish I could stand that firmly on a knife decision. I've had a Randall catalog sitting here for a good six months and have decided about ten times which knife I'm ordering "for sure". haha. Haven't ordered yet.

    Yep, ever since I got to use a few at the Hardwoodsmans meet a few years ago I knew I'd get a Soldier River (or three) and a Mississippi. You are definitely making the choices harder though with your recent offerings.

    In your case its hard to go wrong no matter what choice you make with a Randall. My favorite is the Model 14 Attack with a Border Patrol Handle.

    Umm, nope, don't think so. I have a Boonie, and a Z-sere, and a couple more that are oscillating my brain stem. I am still on the list for one more, and then the contact list. So, who knows, maybe I can get three or four more before I get to old to open the packages.
