This looks to be a late 1970s to early 1980s knife, given the period of Thornal sheath special stamping and hand tooling. Notes and Information about this Rare Sheath. As per Rhett Stidham (Randall Lore #41 Andy Thornal Special). Andy Thornal is a world class, sporting and outfitter's store, in Winter Haven, Florida and has been a RANDALL dealer since 1969. To date there have had three special Randall knives made. A floral design is present below the stone pocket on the front of the sheath.
The sheaths were made by Johnson. The first knives in this series had sheaths with the floral design also, but later on the floral design was discontinued. Also the ANDY THORNAL mark is on the back of sheath. The knife shown here [Model 21 with ATS stamp on reverse but no hand tooled floral design on front] is one of those non special knives with the sheath marked Andy Thornal. This is not the case today and exactly when this stopped is not known for sure but probably in the early 1980s.
As per RKS newsletter #47 (8/2000), p. 7, possibly less than 100 ATS marked sheaths were made by Johnson for non-ATS-special knives.
