It's of older issue, the 4 1/2 blade has been discontinued on model 11's. The paperwork that came with this knife isn't dated per se, but it has RANDALL's older'knife sharpening instruction' sheet that has a different zip code & is absent of a web address.
I speculate its date of manufacture to be sometime in the 1990's. It still looks new - no flaws on knife or leather sheath. There's one insignificant spot of patina near the center of the brass butt which may easily polish out (see pic #4). Pic #5 shows the splendid workmanship typical of all RANDALL knives. Note the expert use of silver solder which artfully fills in the gap where the tang conjoins the brass hilt...
A time consuming touch seen only on premium grade cutlery. Brass Birdshead pommel & brass single hilt.
Zippered Cordura RANDALL soft case. Burgundy Micarta (hand layup) handle. Type "C" leather sheath with vintage hone stone.
Overall length - 9 inches (23 cm). Blade length - 4 3/8 inches (11 cm). Handle length - 4 1/4 inches (11 cm). Blade stock - 3/16 high carbon SS.
