Order Details

Harry Morseth began making knives by hand around 1925 using A-2 tool steel that he shaped, ground and heat-treated himself. Shortly after World War II he made a trip to his father's native Norway and bought a thousand rough ground laminated blades. Harry finish ground those blades and turned them into handmade knives. Those blades were heat-treated to 60+ Rc. and they held an edge to such a remarkable degree that Harry was able to build a reputation that kept he and his wife (she laced the sheaths) busy until their deaths in old age. Knives made using the Morseth® Laminated Steel, including those made in the A. G. Russell™ shop, sell in the secondary market today at high prices. They are still in demand.

Instead of allowing the fine old name of Morseth® Knives to die when we could no longer buy the laminated steel, we switched to a high-end modern steel and focus on making narrow tang knives with unusual handles like the African Ironwood we have used for the handle of these knives. We chose to make the first knives using Crucible's 154CM stainless which I purchased years ago.

These knives are handmade in our own shop using all possible modern techniques such as the use of outside water jet to cut the blades instead of band sawing, CNC grinders to rough grind the blades, and EDM to precisely fit the guards instead of hand filing; all of which cuts belt costs and our knifemaker's time. These cost savings help to keep the retail prices in a reasonable range.

The handles on all three knives are African Ironwood with an Ivory Rucarta™ front spacer. The guards are 420 stainless steel. Each knife includes a handmade sheath. Sheath and knife both made in the U. S. A.

The Morseth® trademark is still owned by A. G. Russell™ Knives, Inc.
