A.G. Russell's 2014 Texas Ranger
King of the Woods

This is the 9th knife I have designed and produced honoring the Texas Rangers. With every knife I design, I think of my great, great uncle George Howell who joined the Rangers in 1870. Each year, I try to design a knife that young George would have liked to own if he'd had unlimited choices.

A.G. Russell™ Cowboy and Rancher

A.G. Russell™ Cowboy and Rancher

Rucarta™ is a very durable phenolic material like Micarta® that I started using in the 1970s for our Morseth® knives. Rucarta™ gave me the ability to add color that I could not get in any other material. Coral has always been the most popular color with our customers, after black of course.

A. G. Russell™ Arkansas Veterans Folder

A. G. Russell™ Arkansas Veterans Folder

As a veteran, 1953 –1956, the son of a man who spent over 33 years on active duty, and part of a family who has had family members in every war this nation has fought, I was appalled by the treatment of our soldiers returning from Vietnam.

AGLB-C1AV $19.95

A.G. Russell™ Cowboy and Rancher

A.G. Russell™ Cowboy and Rancher

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. Instead, I have created two variations: the A. G. Russell Rancher and the A G. Russell Cowboy.

A. G. Russell™ Pocket Beak

A. G. Russell™ Pocket Beak

The Beak, or "the A. G. Russell™ Hawkbill on steroids" as I like to call it, has been a very popular knife, but Goldie and I felt the need for a somewhat smaller version that would fit in your pants pocket, work apron pocket or garden basket.

A. G. Russell™ Reverse Congress Muskrat

A. G. Russell™ Reverse Congress Muskrat

I have always been partial to the Muskrat pattern. Over the past 47 years I have produced at least six different versions. This is the seventh and finest of all I have ever seen.

A. G. Russell™ Gentleman's Frame Lock

After the success of the Acies and the Acies2, I knew I wanted to design more Frame Lock knives, and to be able to offer them to my customers at every possible price level. I am well aware that not everyone who wants to own an Acies2 can afford to pay as much as it costs.

A. G. Russell™ Orca Frame-Lock

A. G. Russell™ Orca Frame-Lock

The Orca is a frame-lock folder that shouts BOLD in capital letters. There seems to be a current trend of wider folding knives than has been customary, with both large and small as well as "New" and traditional designs. If you have looked at my Texas Ranger traditional folders, you know that I like BOLD. In the Orca, I have chosen to make a folder in the new style.

A. G. Russell™ Sunfish

A. G. Russell™ 2012 Texas Ranger®

A. G. Russell™ 2012 Texas Ranger®

The Texas Hunter, the 2012 Texas Ranger Knife, may be my favorite knife in this series. I say that with caution, because I have really liked the four knives that came before it.

A. G. Russell™ Medium Barlow Lockback

A. G. Russell™ Medium Barlow Lockback

For many people the only knife for every day carry is a Barlow. Our new Medium Barlow Lockback is the perfect knife for that purpose. This is a Standard Barlow handle; that is a Swell End Jack shape with a Long Bolster. This is where we leave the Old Fashioned Barlow.

Mino Kami Japanese Folder

Mino Kami Japanese Folder

The Higo No Kami is a style of folding pocketknife native to Japan. Traditionally this is a friction folder, which simply means that the knife is held closed simply by the friction created between the washers and handle material in contact with the blade. The blade is held in the open position by your hand wrapped around the handle and the "tang" of the blade as you use the knife.

NER-LV203D $145.00

Loveless Gentleman's Folder

Loveless Gentleman's Folder

Sometime in the mid 1980s, probably 1984, Bob Loveless was a guest in my home. Bob and I had been close friends since we met in 1968. While visiting that year, Bob designed two knives for me, a lockback folder and an integral hunting knife.

A.G. Russell™ Wharncliffe Blade Sowbelly

A.G. Russell™ Wharncliffe Blade Sowbelly

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. I also designed blades that appear almost too long to fit into the handle, and added a stop pin that keeps the blades from ever meeting the back spring - no ding to the blade.

A.G. Russell™ Clip Point Blade Sowbelly

A.G. Russell™ Clip Point Blade Sowbelly

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™ 3-5/8" Gunstock

We introduced the A. G. Russell™ Medium Gunstock Lockback in January of 2011. Customer response has been very positive, but many tell us they would like one in a smaller size. We have reworked the design a little to produce this great knife in a NEW, pocketable size.

A.G. Russell™ Rancher Pocketknives

A.G. Russell™ Rancher Pocketknives

For years, I have been an admirer of the Sodbuster class of knives. My favorites were always those made by Eye Brand of Solingen Germany, sadly now gone. Sodbuster, of course, is now a Case® Cutlery trademark, so I cannot offer you an A. G. Russell Sodbuster. Instead, I offer two variations: the A. G. Russell Rancher and the A G. Russell Cowboy.

A.G. Russell™ Curved Regular Jack Zulu Spear™ Blade

A.G. Russell™ Curved Regular Jack Zulu Spear™ Blade

We have taken a very old handle pattern and added a Wharncliffe blade made as the original designer intended. The blade measures fifty percent thicker than most other Wharncliffe blades and tapers to the edge and to the point.

A.G. Russell™ Titanium Button Lock

A.G. Russell™ Titanium Button Lock

The basic function of the button lock began with switchblades many years ago. Except for the William Henry Button Lock designed by Matt Conable, this type of lock never seemed to amount to anything. The William Henry Button Lock works wonderfully well, as you would expect from Matt's designs.

RUS-CZ13SWB White Bone $79.95

A.G. Russell™ Pinched Peanut

A.G. Russell™ Pinched Peanut

This version of the A.G. Russell Pinched Peanut is finished with gorgeous interior wooly mammoth ivory, hand chosen from our own ivory stock specifically for this knife.

A.G. Russell™ Sowbelly Trapper

A.G. Russell™ Sowbelly Trapper

The Sowbelly pattern handle, like the Dogleg, is smaller at the blade end and somewhat serpentine in shape. I have taken the commonly accepted serpentine sowbelly and swollen the large end until it looks like a very pregnant sow. Notice the curve to the bolster, allowing a very natural line for the open blade. Also notice the huge Wharncliffe blade that appears to be too long to fit in the handle.

A.G. Russell™ Dozier Tab Lock Trapper

A.G. Russell™ Dozier Tab Lock Trapper

For years, Goldie has wanted to produce this Dozier Trapper pattern. We have worked unsuccessfully with a couple of manufacturers, but in each instance they were unable, or unwilling, to produce the Dozier style lock with the exacting tolerances necessary, opting to simply use a liner style lock that they were already using on other knives. In the years it has taken us to find a factory that would produce the knife to our specifications, Bob has improved the lock design and we have applied for a patent. This is a lock that stops on a flat line tab, able to stand up to the battering to which we knife nuts subject our knives.

A.G. Russell™ Spire

A.G. Russell™ Spire

The Spire, a trim little gentleman's folder was designed by Matt Conable and produced in 2004 as William Henry's second model from Japan. While the Spire was a great success for A. G. Russell™ Knives, it was not particularly successful for William Henry® and they dropped the model after only one production run.

A.G. Russell™ 2.5 Titanium Lockback Folder

A.G. Russell™ 2.5 Titanium Lockback Folder

This tiny Titanium Lockback Folder is based on the A. G. Russell Ultimate Pen Knife which we introduced mid-year 2003. The Pen Knife is a slip joint and measures only 2" closed. While it is an extremely handy and useful little knife, I saw the need for a knife that is just as thin (to rest comfortably in your pocket) but is a little larger and locks.

A. G. Russell™ American Bicentennial Knife

A. G. Russell™ American Bicentennial Knife

When I bought the tiny Hen & Rooster firm in 1975, among the many things I found in the factory was a knife with a coffin shaped handle. This knife had not been made in years and was bladed in a way odd to an American eye. It had a large blade at the small end and a small blade at the large end. In my mind, I saw a bold saber ground blade with a strongly cut swedge and a long pull as a single blade knife.

Knife Collectors Club™ 35th Anniversary Knife

To commemorate the 35th Anniversary of the founding of the Knife Collectors Club™, A.G. has designed the Cattaraugus® Two Blade Whittler. While this is a Reverse Congress pattern, notice that it is like no other Reverse Congress you have seen.
