I founded A. G. Russell Knives in 1964. Along with Bob Loveless and Dan Dennehy I founded the Knifemakers Guild in 1970, the same year I founded The Knife Collector's Club, Inc. In 1968 I started The A. G. Russell List of knives for Immediate Delivery, the very first aftermarket for knives, in 1990 this became The Cutting Edge® now Cuttingedge.com
I am interested in designing great knives and maki8ng them so everybody loves the fit and finish and pricing them so anybody can afford them.
Yes, appreciate the information on the steel. Will pass it on.
Beautiful facility you have there in Rogers, AR. Mr. Russell. Stopped in your store. Really nice people. Tried to get a tour of your facility as I do short videos for a TV station where I come from [KLHU TV 45 Lake Havasu City, AZ.]; possibly next time on our return trip from the Atlanta show. Pictures/videos of yours and one of your competitors businesses in eastern TN. will be shown locally to the knife collectors who watch our station. They seem to appreciate candid views of popular "far away" knife businesses.
One thing for sure: CAN NOT MISS, from the freeway, that A.G. Russell sign on your building! Just sorry I could not get a picture of it when I came upon it.
well, live and learn i say! sounds like i have learned from one from one of the very best too. we all make mistakes, and hopefully i have learned from mine. look forward to any of your wisdom you can pass along to me my friend.
