A.G. Russell Push Dagger with Musk Ox

about this product

Item #: SMR-822-MO


Order Details


Very Limited

Push Daggers were highly favored by gamblers on the early riverboats and also in the gold fields of California and Nevada where they were carried concealed, usually along with a derringer, as protection. Ours was designed for a much less adventurous life. Along with the elegant deep chocolate brown leather sheath, you'll not find a letter opener that will generate more interest.

The material used for the handle scales for this version of the knife is from the skull cap of the Musk Ox and is held in place with mosaic pins. This material is very rare because the skull cap is not shed - it is harvested only once the animal has died. The scales are added in our shop here in Rogers, Arkansas from material A.G. purchased years ago. It looks like the dagger with this material will be limited to 25 or less. That will be determined by the material we have on hand. They will be VERY limited.
