For years, I have been an admirer of the Sodbuster class of knives. My favorites were always those made by Eye Brand of Solingen Germany, sadly now gone. Sodbuster, of course, is now a Case® Cutlery trademark, so I cannot offer you an A.G. Russell Sodbuster. Instead, I offer two variations: the A.G. Russell Rancher and the A.G. Russell Cowboy. Both blades are 8Cr13MoV at 57-58 Rc. Very properly flat ground to a fine cutting edge, this shadow pattern slipjoint has the very dressy Federal Shield found on higher priced A.G. Russell bolstered knives. Both models have been cycle tested in our own shop to more than 200,000 cycles of opening and closing. To keep the price as low as we possibly can, they do not have belt pouches or clips - they are true pocketknives.

The Cowboy, a larger version of the Rancher, big enough to trim a hoof, butcher, skin or perform any of the other tough jobs a cowboy or farmer might be called on to do. This hand filling slipjoint measurers 4-3/8" closed with a 3-5/8" long and 1" wide blade. Makes a fine hip pocket knife or will ride with comfort in your overalls or chaps pocket. This is a knife for the toughest challenges a slipjoint can be put to. It is less than 1/2" thick and weighs about 3.4 oz. 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.

Love the A.G. Russell Rancher. Ebony Rucarta Handle looks great and feels durable. Light/great blade. Fit and finish fabulous for a knife in this price range. Rating: 10/10 Thomas M. Dallas, TX
I bought both yer Cowboy and Rancher pocket knives in yellow. I like the traditional yellow as when I was a boy and going to the hardware store with my Dad, would see lots of pocket knives with yellow handles. I am in my 60's now. Still like 'em. I keep the smaller of the afore mentioned Russell knives in my pocket each day. Larger one if out in the woods. Between these two knives do just about everything I ask. The steel works very well and the flat grind is done perfectly so as to slice well. Changes: Now, with everything else said about these knives, they would be perfect, PERFECT if you would also make them with the choice of 1095 steel. Would make an old man happy! Excellent knives though! Rating: 9/10 Frederick F. Eau Claire, WI
For over 3 years know I have carried the A.G. Russell Cowboy pocket knife 6 days a week (on Sunday I replace it with the dressier single blade Sowbelly with Brown Rucarta). This knife is rugged and the federal shield gives it a touch of class. It takes a good edge. I have only had to sharpen it twice after hard use. Most of the time all it needs is stropping it on the bottom of my ceramic coffee mug a few strokes to bring it back to shaving sharp. The quality is excellent. After 3 years of constant use it still opens and snaps shut like a bank vault. Paul B. Holly Springs, GA
