Knife Collectors Club™ CM-10

In 1984, an opportunity presented itself to work with one of the best manufacturers of traditional folders in Seki, Japan. The CM-10 was the first of many folders produced for us by this fine Japanese maker. We have a VERY small quantity of the Collector Grade (serial numbers 301-1000), the Excelsior Grade (serial #26-300) with etched blade and with etched blade and engraved bolsters and the Premier Grade (serial numbers 1-25) with etched blade and special engraved bolsters. There are very few serial numbers left. We will ship the smallest numbers first within the grade you order.

This blade was my first using the now highly respected AUS-8. I worked with the maker to accomplish a blade ground very thin, the way I like them ground. It measures 2-1/2", is beautifully hollow ground with a mirror polish and is tempered to 57-59 Rc. The obverse tang is marked "Cattaraugus, Springdale Ark" in two lines and the reverse tang is marked "K.C.C.™, CM-10, Japan" in three lines. Made in Japan in 1984-85.

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.
