A.G. Russell Light'n Bug
Item #: AGLL-C14CF
An A. G. Russell™ Exclusive
I was going to call this handsome little knife the firefly, forgetting that another knife company is currently using that name. To avoid confusion, I have renamed it the Light'n Bug, our childhood name for the firefly. This is a beautiful little gentleman's knife with Carbon Fiber sides and one blue anodized Titanium liner that provides the locking leaf. The 2-1/2" slim drop point blade is black Ti coated 8Cr13MoV at 57-59 Rc. The blue anodized titanium liner and pocket clip, and the gold Ti coated fittings make a beautiful contrast to the black handle and blade. Measures 3-3/8" closed and weighs just 1.0 oz.
While I think of this as a Gentleman's Knife, it occurs to me that it is also the perfect knife for the lady in your life. Slim, Delicate, Useful. If you are gifting this knife you might consider classing up the gift with an A.G. Russell Presentation box. Made by one of our top makers 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.
Light'n Bug - Edge needs to be polished more - easy to do.
Remove the clip, extend the thumb button so that the knife can be opened with either right or left hand.
Break the edges of the scales sightly. The butt end edges are too sharp and a fine diamond hone took care of it.
Call it the "June Bug."

I absolutely LOVE the Light'n Bug! And I'm NOT a knife person. My father carried a small pocket knife his entire adult and teenage life -- a small classic yellow-handled kind. But I was never drawn to them -- until I saw an article on the Light n' Bug last year (I'm 65, now, and semi-retired). I love it's feel. I love its LACK of weight. I love its look-- every time I reach for it in my pocket, I think "This was one of the BEST purchases I ever made!" It feels like finding a small hidden Christmas gift every day that I use it.

Dear A.G. --
Over the years I have purchased at least a dozen knives from you, and I have to say that my favorite is my most recent purchase, the carbon fiber-handle Light'n Bug.
Well done, A. G. and Goldie! Matt G. Higganum, CT
