A.G.Russell Damascus Lockback.

Jul 14, 2000
I picked mine up today and I'm pretty impressed.
I bought mine used (got a hell of a price) so there are a few flaws,but this is a beautiful knife.the handles are chinese quince according to the website,and are almost perfect.nickel silver bolsters are lightly scrathed,but i can live with that at this price. the blade-SHARP. even used.shaves easily,although it does need to be cleaned up a little.what i think is real cool is the way the damascus lines go down inside the thumbnail notch.
this is my first "good" lockback, and so far I'm impressed.It is also my first damascus bladed knife.
If anyone has one of these could you fill me in how the damascus compares to other that you may have.

Overall rating,even for a used knife 8 or 9 (cant decide) out of 10.I like it.
