question on knife


Apr 25, 1999
Can anyone tell me about a knife I just bought? It says "A.B. Russell" and "Springdale, Ark." on one side of the base of the blade. On the other, it says "CM-4 Germany." On the blade itself is an etching signed "Shaw-Leibowitz." On the handle is a number, like it was one of a limited series. It's small about 4 inches long when closed. Does anyone know when it was made and why? Value? Any info at all would be appreciated.
not sure exactly what you have there, but you can go to and maybe get a little info there or email him and ask him if ya cant get an answer here.

Can tell you that Bruce Shaw and Lebowitz who's first name eludes me at the moment are two of the best embellishers in the business.
