Shipping Reduced When Ordered Alone

My nails are becoming more and more like my hair - thin and fragile. Slipjoint and square tanged knives have become very difficult for me to open without an assist.

Always a believer in never using a crow-bar when a simple jimmy would do, I have designed a very simple tool. It measures only 1-7⁄8" long and 5⁄8" wide and it is a mere 0.038" thick. The curved front edge has been machined to a precise bevel for a secure fit into the nail mark on any antique or modern slip-joint knife. I have added a positioning button for the thumb. This is the tiniest of tools and is made of spring tempered stainless steel for many years of hard use. 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
