about this product

with Desert Ironwood & India Stag Handle

Keith has been providing us with a narrow tang hunting knife with a modified clip point blade for the past couple of years. Because of requests from customers, we have asked him to also make a drop point hunter for us. Keith makes mostly full tang knives with applied handle scales, and makes the narrow tang knives mostly for us. The narrow tang allows more variety in the handle material and in the arrangement of that material. Often referred to as Stick Tang Construction, because the handle material is arranged on a narrow extension of the blade which extends through the butt of the handle, this is the way knives were built by Webster Marble, Bill Scagel, Harry Morseth and, yes, by Randall Knives.

For years, our most popular hunting knives were the Morseth® knives, all of which were built with the narrow tang in our shop in Springdale, Arkansas. Today, most knifemakers and most knife factories have moved away from the narrow tang, favoring the full tang with handle scales for ease of construction. Keith, a Northwest Arkansas knifemaker with lots of knifemaking credentials, probably learned the craft of narrow tang construction in Bob Dozier's shop making the Morseth® knives.

While Keith is not limiting this model with stag and desert ironwood to a specific number, it will be limited by the availability of the stag and what he can produce. The 4-3/8" drop point blade measures 1" wide at it widest point, and 3/16" thick. The steel is D2 at 60-61 Rc. and the hilt is stainless steel. Measures 8-3/8" overall and weighs 7.6 oz. The brown leather pouch style sheath is handmade by Keith and his wife Linda.

Keith Murr Knives

Keith Murr is an knifemaker residing in Northwest Arkansas. He has been making knives since 1987. There are lots of knifemakers making handmade knives in their own shop, some just set up in their garage or a small outbuilding, and some with fine well equipped shops. Those who are making knives at the quality level demanded by our customers is much smaller. Finding makers who are producing the quality and can supply enough pieces for us to include in an A. G. Russell™ catalog is rare.
