This is a knife that is different. Instead of the blade folding between two handle sides, this one pivots twice, the handle containing the blade pivots out of the frame and then swings around the frame, exposing the blade. With a blade of VG-10 at 60-61 Rc., a stainless frame and a titanium handle, the materials are the same that you will find in handmade knives that sell at much higher prices. The blades are deeply hollow ground from stock that is just under 1/8" thick. The general purpose blade shape makes it ideal for picking splinters, opening letters and boxes or cutting articles from newspapers. This design, when made as well as it is here, is one of the finest dress knives you can own - slim, compact, interesting to everyone who sees it. You'll want to show it off. Measures 2-7/8" closed and 5-1/8" open. Weighs 1.0 oz.

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.

A.G. Russell Funny Folder - This is the third one of these I have owned over the past few decades. I seem to be able to keep one for about ten years before I lose it. I love the design of this knife! It is extremely practical, occupies little space in my pocket, holds an edge for a really long time. Unfortunately, this new one from China has such sharp edges on parts of the handle that it will wear through my pocket in no time. I will have to smooth those out somehow to carry it. I would rate it a "10" if it were not for this problem. Changes: I would pay $10 more if you had it made somewhere other than China. Please hide the word "China" somewhere else so I don't have to see it every time I use my knife. The outer handle is missing one final step in the finishing process: all edges need to be slightly smoothed to keep from wearing holes in my pocket. I will include a photo showing how the sharp handle edges can scrape up fingernail shavings. Rating: 8/10 Royal K. Anchorage, AK
