Available Only from A. G. Russell™

Realizing that many people may not be able to afford a true "handmade" knife, Wayne Hendrix and his wife Ruby are producing his semi-skinner pattern utilizing some outside production. The blades come to Wayne fully ground.  He adds the cocobolo handle scales and the final finish.  Ruby makes the leather sheaths.

These are high quality knives, designed for the outdoorsman. The blade will be marked with a laser signature of W. Hendrix to differentiate it from a completely handmade Hendrix knife.

This semi-skinner is hiltless, with a tapered tang and Cocobolo handle scales.  The 3-1⁄8" blade is 440C stainless at 57-59 Rc. with a satin finish.  Measures 7-1⁄4" overall. Weighs 3.2 oz.

Wayne Hendrix

Most knife people know Bob Dozier as a great knifemaker, but few know him for the open hearted and generous person that he is. He told me of a remarkable knifemaker in Carolina who made great knives which were really under priced. Seeing him as totally honest and straight-forward, and producing top notch knives, Bob thought he warranted more recognition. After a year's work by Bob, Wayne and his wife Ruby, together with Goldie and I, we are happy to feature his knives with sheaths made by his wife, Ruby.

Wayne was trained by George Herron, a very early Knifemakers Guild member and founder of the "South Carolina school of knifemaking". You can see that influence in his work. In addition to being a knifemaker, Wayne is a hunting guide. His knives are built to function for both the novice and the expert and to hold up to hard use.
