Order Details

A.G.'s FeatherLite One-Hand Knife was designed, and is built, with simplicity and strength. The handle is one solid piece of black fiberglass reinforced nylon shaped to guard your forefinger from slipping onto the blade and to keep the sharp corner at the back of the blade from wearing a hole in your pocket. The handle is injection molded in Taiwan using the same mold we have used since 1993. That mold was designed by Vaughn Neely. We shipped it from here to Taiwan when the manufacturing process we were using was no longer feasible.

This design combined a couple of construction methods that A.G. had developed, or enhanced, in earlier knives. In the 1970s, he and Bill Davis developed linerless folders. These were lockbacks with Micarta handle sides. There were no liners. The Brute was an example. In the 1980s, A.G. popularized a unique front lock in his all steel One-Hand Knife, the K87. In the model K93, he combined these two "thoughts", utilizing the lock concept from the K87 and the linerless construction from the Brute. The K93 has been in continous production since 1993 and is still one of our best selling folders.

Not at all large and very lightweight. It is engineered to give you the fastest and surest opening knife you can buy. The oval hole in the 3-1/8" hollow ground general purpose blade enables you to easily flip it open with one hand. Available in 8A at 57-59 Rc or VG-10 at 60-61 Rc. Measures just under 4" closed. Weighs 1.5 oz. Made in Taiwan.

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.

A.G. Russell FeatherLite One-Hand Knife - I find this the 1st neck carry worth a darn.   Light,  less politically incorrect than most and much easier to deploy than needing to dig thru pockets.  In police work a knife becomes your most used tool.  Harder to lose than pocket carry knife.

Featherlite one hand - This is the best edc i have ever had. I've had it for less than 1 week. I have used it at least 50 times. Now i know why a.g. uses it as his favorite go to. I started buying from you 15 years ago, wish i knew about you before i wasted all my money on Bad products. High prices thank you. Rating 10/10

The A.G. Russell K93 
Pros: thin, strong, good-looking, good steel, good materials, great design. It's lasted 20+ years of semi-hard use.
Cons: I never had a problem closing my K93 but some of my dumb friends could never close it after borrowing it. I finally fixed that by not loaning it out. really, what do you expect from someone that doesn't have their own knife anyway.
Even though mine has lasted forever, I never really liked the look of the tiny phillips screw that attaches the unlock button. Maybe a rivet or torx screw would look better. Of course a rivet would be horrible to service.
