Order Details

Over the past 50 years, there have been many changes in the knife world. Styles have changed, handle materials have changed, and in the past few years new blade steels are being introduced faster than most can keep up with them.

A. G. made a small Gent's Hunter in the 1970s and again in the 1990s. It was a handmade knife with a high end steel, a nickel silver guard and a handmade leather sheath. The price in the 1990s ranged from $115.00 to $175.00 for knives with handle scales of Rucarta™ or wood.  A. G. designed a new small personal hunter that we had manufactured by one of the best makers in China. The 3-3⁄8" flat ground drop point blade in this new knife is D-2 steel at 60 Rc. The contoured handle scales are black G10 and we have included a fitted black Kydex® sheath. The knife is available with a satin finish blade or with a black titanium coated blade. Measures 7-1⁄8" overall. The Kydex® sheath snaps on or off easily and the entire package weighs only 5.2 oz. Made in China. A knife with a left handed sheath is available on request.

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 thought you might want to know about a small problem I had with your A.G. Russell Personal Hunter (RU-C1153G) that I ordered recently.  The first time I wore it, the belt clip separated from the rest of the sheath, resulting in the knife/sheath falling off the belt.  It seems that the problem is that the rivets that attach the clip to the sheath are the same length as the rivets that hold the rest of the sheath together, even though they're going through three layers of Kydex instead of two.  Since they don't reach all the way through the third layer (the belt clip) they can't be properly rolled over to secure the clip. I'm a knifemaker and I work with Kydex frequently, so it was the work of only a few minutes to re-attach the clip.  There's no need for me to take advantage if your excellent warranty.  But I'm not sure whether my experience was a fluke or whether the problem extends to all the knives, so I thought you might want to know about it.  Aside from this, I'm very impressed with the fit/finish and design of the knife.
