The Sowbelly pattern handle, like the Dogleg, is smaller at the blade end and somewhat serpentine in shape. I have taken the commonly accepted serpentine sowbelly and swollen the large end until it looks like a very pregnant sow. Notice the curve to the bolster, allowing a very natural line for the open blade. Also notice the huge Wharncliffe blade that appears to be too long to fit in the handle. The addition of a stop pin that keeps the blades from ever meeting the back spring, allows us to make blades that are wider than those in knives by other designers.

The manufacturing is remarkable, the best we can find anywhere in the world for this type of knife. An example of the fine workmanship is the finish on the inside of the knife which is comparable to the high quality, high price semi-production knives being made today. Before putting this knife into production, the prototypes were mechanically opened and closed over 300,000 times. I do not want my customers to ever have to put up with a broken spring.

This is a 4-1/4" closed two blade slipjoint folder with a 3/32" thick blades of 8Cr13MoV at 57-58 Rc. The clip blade is 3-3/8" long and 1" wide. The Wharncliffe blade is 3-1/2" long and 7/8" wide. Both are flat ground. The liners, bolster, caps and the federal shield are all 400 series stainless steel. Includes a handsome brown braided thong for lifting the knife from the pocket. If you wish to carry the knife on your belt, a Dozier designed belt pouch is available. Knife and leather pouch 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

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.

Awesome knife. Excellent build quality. I own 3 of them (one is the single blade design). I believe your products are extremely high quality - and that's based on my use of them. With the possible exception of a great custom made knife, I don't think there's a better made knife on the market. Mike K. Milleville, NJ
