I just got my new Randall #4 with a 5" blade -- after a 3 year wait.
Its beautiful, and worth the long delivery delay.
One wonders why Randall doesn't hire more people to shorten the wait time. In recent years, new orders are quoted a 3+ year delivery date. Perhaps its part of their marketing mystique?

It doesn't exist without pics.
Now about the wait.
It is hard to train folk for a real craft. Their production is actually pretty high if you compare them to the other semi-custom production houses. But there is also the Price/Market point question and if they made more of them, the price would come down. Is that the best financial decision for the company or is better to keep them scarce by limiting supply?
Hey, it has worked for over 100 years for DeBeers.
