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 homemade. 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 but today seldom make a knife a year. 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 pocket knives, one hand knives, lockbacks, and fixed blade knives and have them made to our standards.

A.G. Russell™ Shopmade® Caper with Giraffe Bone

A.G. Russell™ Shopmade® Caper with Giraffe Bone

This is a knife I designed in 2000 for the caping of big-game. The first 100 were made using Stellite for the blades. Stellite is very expensive and is difficult to work with, so a few years ago I created this handy little knife with 154CM at the optimum hardness of 59-61 Rc.

Jerry Lairson says "I have been building custom knives for fifty-five years and it’s my favorite thing to do." He goes on to say "I learned more about what makes a knife work properly in ten years of competing in knife cutting contests than I learned in the previous forty years of knifemaking."

A. G. Russell™ Folding Cook's Knife II

The original A. G. Russell™ Folding Hocho, made for us in Japan for years, has probably been our second best selling knife ever, after the K-93 Featherlite pocketknife. Cooking personality Alton Brown bought several. He told me that he really liked the knife, but he would like it even better if I would put handle scales on one for him.

Pocket Safety Axe

Pocket Safety Axe

In the 1970s, I was an active outdoorsman. As a farmer and a hunter, I used knives daily, and hand and larger axes at least weekly. I found this small A. G. Russell™ axe, which was being made for me in Solingen at the time, so handy that it was almost always in my hip pocket whenever I left the house. If I was on horseback, then it was fixed to the saddle.
