Titanium Frame and 9Cr13CoMoV Blade

When I designed the original One-Hand Knife™ in 1986, I used the following year as the model number - K87. As costs rose, the retail price had to rise as well. I quickly needed a new knife that would operate in the same fashion, allowing the owner to open and close the knife with only one hand, either hand, but with a lower price. This led, in 1992, to the A. G. Russell FrontLock™. The first knife made with this lock was the K-93 with a handle molded of Dupont Zytel®, fiberglass filled nylon, followed by the K-94 with stainless steel handles. In 1995, we made a few handmade knives - the K95 - using the same mechanism, with handles of black and coral Rucarta™.

Our newest in the K series One-Hand Knives™ is the K12, using this same FrontLock™ mechanism. This is a new size with a blade that measures just under the magic 3". We have replaced the glass-filled nylon lock bar stud with one of die-cast stainless steel. The frame, including the back-spacer, is titanium, creating a very lightweight knife. The blade steel is 9Cr13CoMoV at 58-60 Rc. with a handsome satin finish and a very sharp edge. Includes a reversible tip-up titanium clip.

This remarkable One-Hand Knife™ is available with textured green G10, cocobolo or smooth white bone. Measures right at 3-3/4" closed and weighs 2.5 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.
