With the Skorpion series, we introduced what we refer to as Featherlite™ steel. The weight is near what you would expect with Titanium handles. A.G. and Phil Gibbs engineered the handle sides in a way that has allowed the removal of all excess from the thickness of the steel. The steel is removed from the inside of the handle, so you have to look closely to see how they have accomplished this.

The Sea Skorpion was designed for specific usage, but also functions beautifully as an everyday knife. This is a highly useful frame-lock folder with a wider than normal General Purpose Blade, a flipper and a hole in the blade that allows for very easy opening and closing with either hand. Any Sailor’s knife must have a serrated portion of the blade for cutting rope, so we tested every serration pattern we could find and selected the one that did the very best job, adding it to the half of the blade edge nearest the pivot. It does not look aggressive, but it cuts the toughest rope as if it were soft butter.

The 3-1⁄2" general purpose blade is 8Cr13MoV at 57-59 Rc. with a satin finish. The marlin spike measures 2-1⁄4". Measures 4-1⁄2" closed. Weighs 3.6 oz. 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
