Order Details

Limited to 120 of each handle material.

Many years ago we had a knife that was made in Japan with a handle very like this one. The blade, however, was so much smaller that the knives do not look alike. This elegant little knife has our preferred coil spring and stryker-pin that holds the blade above the inside back of the knife and is so smooth that you can pinch the hollow ground blade and snap the handle down to open it one handed.

The 2-3⁄8" drop point blade of Japanese VG-10 at 59-61 Rc., will take and hold an edge to please any knife lover. The 3" handle has a positive hook at the butt making a three finger grip solid as can be. The bolsters, liners and pins are stainless steel. Available with handle scales of Black G-10, Bugoora (my name for the previously unknown exotic wood the Government allows us to substitute for the now outlawed Cocobolo) and smooth white bone. The wood is every bit as fine as any Cocobolo we have ever seen. The fit and finish is very well done giving the perception of a much more expensive knife. Measures 3" closed. Weighs about 1.7 oz. Made in China.

The use of Rose Pattern Swedish Powder-Metal Damasteel for the blade turns this great little knife from pocketknife to pocket jewlery. The ultimate in edge holding as well as beauty.

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
