Order Details

The Large Folding Lockback was the second of our current series limited edition Texas Ranger® knives with ebony rucarta™ scales and the Texas Ranger inlay.  An A.G. Russell design, it was introduced in 2009.  Each A. G. Russell™ Texas Ranger® model is limited to one thousand pieces.  After those one thousand special knives, each model will be offered in civilian dress. 

This is a large Lockback folder measuring a full 5-5/8" closed. We have used a space saving coil spring, which I prefer because it will hold up longer giving more life to the knife, and it makes the action smoother therefore the knife easier to open and close.  The extra space allowed by the coil spring and the addition of a stop pin which keeps the blade from ever meeting the back spring/locking bar, allowed us to design a blade that is a full 1" wide, much wider than usually found in a handle of this width. One of my pet peeves is the way the inside surfaces of most production knives are finished.  Take a look inside this one, you will find the finish comparable to the high quality, high price semi-production knives being made today.  The manufacturing is remarkable, the best we can find anywhere in the world today for this type of knife.

The 4-5/8" flat ground classic clip point blade is 8Cr13MoV at 57-58 Rc.  and measures 5/32" thick and 1" wide.  The liners, bolster, caps and the federal shield are all 400 series stainless steel. Includes a handsome braided brown leather thong for lifting the knife from the pocket.

Available in two handle materials, premium Cocobolo from our own storeroom or a bright, bright yellow Delrin®.  If you wish to carry the knife on your belt, a Dozier designed belt pouch is available.  Knife and pouch 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.

The Large Folding Hunter and the Gunstock lockbacks are incredible. Solid as a fixed blade, classic as granddad's knife, and made with a modern flair. Dale D. Fayetteville, AR
