“I just received the A.G. Russell 4" Sunfish Lockback with the black G10 that I purchased. It is a beautifully crafted knife and I am so pleased with it that I am going to order another, with stag. My question is this; for the $120. - $135. for the knife, why is the steel of such quality that would be a good buy at half the price? For the money, couldn't you have given us something better? (And maybe weight reducing titanium as bolsters and liners? A good liner lock would be great, too) I'd happily pay $$50. - $60. more! Just such boring steel on such a beautiful knife. Anyway, I just thought I'd share my 2 cents. Peace, Brad. ”
“I have already offered what I considered to be constructive criticism. Now I'd like to say how beautiful the design! The knife is practically flawlessly executed! Lines are crisp and elegant, with an action like butter! I can one hand open it with just a rapid down and up motion. Closing it is just too smooth. The back lock functions flawlessly,, no sticking or extra effort. I've been rubbing the stag with some polishing cloth and paper bag and it is starting to develop a great 'used but gently handled' patina.
It is a great hearkening back to times when titanium was only something on the periodic chart of the elements!
Yes, it could be much lighter with ti... but I think it might mess with the time frame/authenticity. I will still carry mine and use it! It is a beautiful example of the knife-maker's art!
[What would I] Change about it? Well, now that you ask, as I have mentioned elsewhere, a chamferring of all bolster exposed edges would be much easier on the pocket and hands! Chamferring the inside edges would eliminate the annoying pains of handling razor sharp metal edges while attempting to avoid the sharp metal edge of the blade. And it would take so little...
Speaking of the blade, what a slicer! Wouldn't it be nice if it would slice more than a sheet of paper before having to resharpen? A bit higher quality steel?
A certain amount of thought goes into ergonomics, lets put some more thought into the end user experience.

“AG Russell V-Sharpening System - Sadly, the quality of this sharpening system is terrible. I have similar sharpening tools from other manufacturers, and the tolerance on the rod holes is tight, so that the rods and angle do not move. On the AG Russell tool, there is tremendous slop in the rod holes (holes were drilled too big), so that the rods can vary by over an inch at their tips.
Better manufacturing, tighter tolerances and/or if my particular item is an anomaly, then better quality control.
