Order Details

The A.G. Russell™ Rancher is a knife that A.G. created based on the Sodbuster, a pattern that he had always admired.  His favorites were always those made by Eye Brand of Solingen, Germany, sadly now gone. Sodbuster, of course, is now a Case® Cutlery trademark, so our smaller knife is the Rancher. This knife was offered in 2011 as a slip joint. As he talked to customers about those knives in our store here in Rogers, A.G. began to see the knife as a lockback with a pocket clip. He designed the new knife as an ambidextrous one-hand opening lockback with a reversible/removable pocket clip & a wider blade, all while maintaining the classic lines of the original.

The Rancher is a perfect size to do any of the jobs a rancher or a ranch foreman might be called on to do, such as cutting calves or colts, notching ears, and cutting rope or bailing twine. The 3-1⁄8" x 7⁄8" drop point blade is 3⁄32" thick 8Cr13MoV stainless steel at 57-59 Rc. It measures 3-5⁄8" closed and weighs 2.3 to 2.5 oz. depending on the handle material. Available in brown jigged bone, ebony Delrin, or smooth white bone. 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
