Order Details

One of my recent goals has been to produce an American made, entry-level, hunting knife.  For the design, I began with the outline of one of Bob Loveless's 4" Drop Point Hunters. To keep it simple and inexpensive I left off all except a vestige of a guard, added handle scales of G-10 (Green or Black) and balanced the knife by creating holes in the tang which are hidden under the handle scales.

This hunter has a 4" drop point blade of stone-washed American made D-2 at 60-61 Rc. The blade measures 1-1/8" wide and 1/8" thick with a full flat grind to create the best slicing blade. D2 gives us really great edge retention and is resistant to rust. The G-10 handle scales combined with the shape of the handle create a positive grip. Measures 8-1/4" tip to butt. Weighs a really light 4.2 oz. Knife and pouch style leather sheath are both made in the U.S.A.

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.

By the way, I also bought an A.G. Russell U.S.A. Made Drop Point Hunter (RU-U1310GR) “second” at the same time.   I have to say that if it weren't for the notch in the choil, I would never be able to tell it was a second – I still have no idea what the visual defect that relegated it to “second” status is!  A very well made and useful knife. Rated 9/10.  Anthony S. Albuquerque, NM
