An A.G. Russell™ Exclusive
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. This first knife is a very basic knife for the outdoors. The 3-3/4" mirror polished drop point blade is deeply hollow ground from 1/8" thick ATS-34 at 59-61 Rc. to a fine edge before being expertly sharpened. The blade measures 7/8" wide with a sharply tapered tang. Tthe stainless hilt is silver soldered with an expert touch. Measures 8" from tip to butt and weighs 6.7 oz.
It would not be unusual to pay twice the money for knives of this quality. One thing you can be sure of: they will never cost less than they do here. This is a great handmade knife at a great price.
If a Hendrix knife is not in stock when you order, delivery time could take 2 to 3 months.
