Order Details

With Interrupted Lockbar Pivot System (ILPS™)

A.G. was fond of large folding Rope knives and was especially proud of the Sunfish Pattern he designed for the 2010 A.G. Russell™ Texas Ranger Knife. When A.G. mentioned to Goldie that he would like to do another Sunfish pattern pocketknife, sometimes referred to as an Elephant’s Toenail pocketknife, she requested a smaller one with a 4" handle. A.G. said, "Fine, but it has to have the same size blade as the original". With the help of Phil Gibbs, and over a month of work, they accomplished just what A.G. wanted, a Sunfish with a 4" handle and a 3-1⁄8" blade. This was accomplished with the development of the new A.G. Russell ™ ILPS™. (Interrupted Lockbar Pivot System.) ILPS™ allows the blade, when closed, to occupy space normally used by the lockbar pivot pin. ILPS™ uses two separated pins, one on each side of the lockbar; consequently the blade can be significantly wider than would otherwise be possible in the same width handle. The steel in the wide drop point blade is 8Cr13MoV at 57-59 Rc. The bolsters, liners and shield are stainless steel. Measures 4" closed. Weighs about 6.3 oz. depending on the handle material. Made in China.

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.
