Always a popular model in our A.G. Russell Knives catalog, this fruit testing knife is in its 3rd evolution. Developed a number of years ago in response to requests from orange and grapefruit growers in Texas and California for a quality testing knife that would standup to hard professional use. Our latest version has a ¼" longer blade than the original and now comes with a popular G-10 handle.
The 4-1/2" long spey blade is 8Cr13MoV at 57-59 Rc. with stainless steel liners and  black textured G-10 handle scales. It is a slip joint, blade does not lock. This is a hardworking tool for the professional. It is also a wonderful knife for those who camp, perfect for dicing meat and peeling and slicing vegetables for the camp stew; or carry it in your backpack, your pocket or the console of your car. Just keep it nearby so you have it when you need it. Slim and unobtrusive. Measures 5-3/8" closed. Weighs 2.7 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
