Based on having carried one of the prototypes (Carbon Fiber) in my pocket for the last few months, this is already one of my favorite designs. It is actually the second version of this knife. We made a Folding Gents Hunter beginning in 2003 which we sold through mid- 2005. That knife was made in the U.S.A, before we lost all of our U.S. manufacturers. It was made with both a Talonite® blade and with a 154-CM blade. I regret that I did not manage to get everything just as I wanted it to be in that knife. I am designing better knives today than ever before. Phil Gibbs, our very capable engineer, has played no small part in this. He puts my ideas into CAD, engineers all the working parts and together we make changes until it suits. Needless to say, this new design suits me very well. I am especially fond of the Featherlight™ Stainless Steel liners. They are skeletonized to reduce weight, then heat treated to give the necessary strength. Like the original, this is a lockback, one of the safest and most secure locks you will find on a folding knife. The 3-5/8" drop point blade is 9Cr13CoMoV hardened to 58-60 Rc. The clip is reversible (right or left) for tip up pocket carry. Handle scales are available in Carbon Fiber, Cocobolo, or Green G-10. Measures 4-3/8" closed. Each knife weighs about 3.2 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.

I'm just writing to say that the Medium Folding Gents Hunter is amazing! I've owned hundreds of knives over the years, and this is without a doubt the smoothest opening lockback I've ever handled. Great fit and finish as well. Changes: The pocket clip tension is a little bit high, but only noticeable with thicker pant pockets.
Rating: 10/10. 
You've got the large gents hunter and the medium gents hunter. The natural next step is the mini gents hunter! A sub-3" blade would be great (especially for people who live in cities with blade length limits, like Los Angeles).

I just received a Folding Gent's Hunter II (in Cocobolo) and it is a stunner! The design and fit and finish are fantastic. I really like the simplicity of the design, but the subtlety of the shapely handle scales and minimalist pocket clip and the way it is integrated into the frame and handle are examples of great design, sort of the "less is more" philosophy of one of the great architects from the past. Was the knife "cheap".........no. Is it a great value at the price......... yes. A.G. and his Chinese Skunkworks can really hit em out of the park in terms of quality and value. Jim S.
