Smaller version of the Medium Gunstock

We introduced the A. G. Russell™ Medium Gunstock Lockback in January of 2011. Customer response has been very positive, but many tell us they would like one in a smaller size. We have reworked the design a little to produce this great knife in a NEW, pocketable size.

Just like the larger version, the lock is designed with a space saving coil spring, which I prefer because it will hold up longer, giving more life to the knife. It also makes the action smoother; therefore, the knife is easier to open and close. A stop pin keeps the blade from ever meeting the back spring/locking bar, allowing more room for a wider blade than you usually find in a handle of this width. One of my pet peeves is the way the inside surfaces of most production knives are finished. Take a look inside this one and you will find the finish comparable to the high quality, high price semi-production knives being made today. This is a remarkable knife and will give you many years of pleasure and service.

Measures 3-5/8" closed and is available in three handle materials: premium Cocobolo from our own storeroom, a really good looking black Rucarta™ and a bright, bright yellow Delrin® that will make your knife really easy to locate. The 2-7/8" flat ground, clip point blade is 8Cr13MoV at 57-58 Rc. and measures 1/8" thick and 13/16" wide. We have placed a deep notch on each side of the blade so the thumb can be used to swing the blade open with one hand - either hand. The liners, bolsters, caps and bomb shield are all 400 series stainless steel. Includes a handsome, braided, brown leather thong for lifting the knife from the pocket. Made in China.


We have supplied the premium Cocobolo from our own inventory. This handsome material has been the premium wood for knife handles for over 200 years. Weighs about 2.9 oz.

A.G. Russell Knives

From the age of nine I made homemade knives until I was about twenty-four when I began to make handmade knives, crude but no longer made at home. A few years later, I had met and learned from makers like R.W. Loveless and R. L. Dozier. I made knives until the mid 1970s. I don’t make handmade knives anymore, as my hands aren’t what they used to be. However, I do have very talented makers in the United States and Japan who make knives that I am proud to put my name on. I design pocketknives, one hand knives, lockbacks, and fixed blade knives and have them made to our standards. ~A.G. Russell III

A.G. Russell has been in the knives and whetstones business for over 50 years. A.G. Russell knives are well known for their quality. A.G. Russell knives tend to be more traditional in style and look, with modern advances in material and design to create excellent knives.

The Large Folding Hunter and the Gunstock lockbacks are incredible. Solid as a fixed blade, classic as granddad's knife, and made with a modern flair. Dale D. Fayetteville, AR
