A. G. Russell Small Doctor's Knife White Pearl

about this product

Item #: RUS-CD13WP


Order Details


I try to design "traditional" knives in such a way that they resemble no knife the buyer has ever owned. Whenever possible, I include our "striker pin", which prevents the edge of the blade from striking the back spring, thus nicking the edge of the blade; and the knives are designed so that the blades all fit closely without rubbing. We have managed to accomplish all of those elements in our small Doctor's knife.

Measures only 3" closed with a 2-1⁄2" Zulu Spear blade and a short (1-1⁄2") Scalpel blade both of 8Cr13MoV at 57-59 Rc. This steel is very popular with our customers. It takes a razor edge and is easily re-sharpened on ceramic, diamonds, Aluminum-Oxide or Arkansas stones. With the striker pin, the edge of the blade will not hit the backspring no matter how roughly you close the knife. Made with the finest stainless steel bolsters, caps, liners and inlay. In an emergency, the knife would make a handy emergency "trach" knife; and it is a really nice dress knife for anyone's everyday carry. Each one weighs about 1.5 oz.

You will find it hard to believe that production knives are available that are so clean inside as these fine knives made in our tiny factory in China. It is true that I can match this quality from a couple makers in Japan, but the cost is three to five times more. These knives are the best value in the world. If you do not agree, we ask that you return them for a full and complete refund, including the return shipping.

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.

The design of the Smooth White Bone Small Doctor's Knife is outstanding. The parallel sides of the handle make it a very clean piece. The scalpel blade is the first time I have ever seen one in a folder and it's very nice. Also the striker pin (I'd call it a stop pin) and the modified blade tangs to accommodate it. It has a very high quality finish. I have several A.G. Russell knives that I like very much but this one tops them all. Frank, J. Eureka, CA
Just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the price, quality and associated value of this Smooth White Bone Small Doctor's Knife. I am a long time customer and have never been disappointed by anything I've ever purchased from you. But this one in particular is outstanding. Opened the package, checked it out and it will be in my pocket from now on. Sometimes I'll buy something from you with the idea of possibly giving it to someone as a gift at some point. But not this one! Mine! Lou, G. Page, AZ
