A. G. Russell™ Cowboy - seconds

A. G. Russell™ Cowboy - seconds

As a long time admirer of the Sodbuster-type pocketknife, I naturally wanted to add one to the A. G. Russell™ line of knives. Sodbuster, of course, is now a W. R. Case® trademark, so I cannot offer you an A. G. Russell Sodbuster.

A. G. Russell™ D'Holder Hunter with Faux Oosic & Amber-Seconds

A. G. Russell™ D'Holder Hunter with Faux Oosic & Amber-Seconds

A few years ago D'Holder designed a knife for me to make and sell. I found handle materials that looked like the natural oosic and amber that D' had used in the prototype and then began to look for someone who could do justice to the original knife and sheath.

Queen® Muskrat - Seconds

Queen® Muskrat - Seconds

The Muskrat pattern has always been a favorite of mine, so in 2012, when we introduced a series of eight classic style knives from Queen Cutlery, the Muskrat was a must. With the popularity of that series with torched stag, we decided to offer those same models with Amber Stag and Ram's Horn.

Queen® Two Blade Serpentine with Amber Stag-Seconds

Queen® Two Blade Serpentine with Amber Stag-Seconds

Those knives were very popular with our customers, but there were some limitations on the available quantity of that stag. At the beginning of 2013, Queen asked us to switch to Amber Stag and Ram's Horn for handle materials on the new knives we ordered. The Two Blade Serpentine is the fourth in this series to be offered in these two materials.

A.G. Russell™ Skorpion™- Seconds

A.G. Russell™ Skorpion™- Seconds

If the Skorpion™ looks sort of familiar, it may be because you have seen the handle shape used in other A. G. Russell designed knives. The K-87, K93, K12 and our new mid lock 3" lockback all have this basic handle shape. This is the first time I have used the handle in a frame lock.

A.G. Russell™ Clip Point Blade Sowbelly - Seconds

A.G. Russell™ Clip Point Blade Sowbelly - Seconds

In early 2011, I introduced my version of the Sowbelly Trapper. The Sowbelly pattern is smaller at the blade end and somewhat serpentine in shape. In my version the large end is swelled until it looks like a very pregnant sow and the bolsters are curved allowing a very natural line for the open blade.

A.G. Russell™ Dogleg Trapper - Seconds

A.G. Russell™ Dogleg Trapper - Seconds

This is a wonderful example of the BEST of Japanese folding knives! In our quest for the best quality for the money, we sometimes accept knife designs from the companies or individuals who make knives for us. This beautifully made Trapper was designed by the maker for A.G. Russell™. With the much prized square tang, it is not quite as I would have designed it. I have a personal preference for tangs that offer walk and talk without stopping in the middle. When we were offered a sample of this knife a little over a year ago, though, the design was so superb and the craftsmanship so good that I had to ignore my opinion of the square tang.
