RR: A.G. Russell Walker Lock in ATS34

Mar 15, 1999
I was curious to whether anyone has had any experience with this knife (model AG-CJ1). I’m looking for a fairly nice-sized “dressy” folder to carry on occasions when one of my black tactical monstrosities may not be appropriate. I’ve gotten spoiled by the convenience of one-hand opening and closing and I’m ashamed to admit that I’m hesitant to carry some of my custom pieces for fear that they may get “dinged”…I was thinking that this knife my be a good candidate for a non-tactical daily carry. It appears to be a good-looking knife, with a drop point blade in decent (if not exceptional) steel and nice organic materials for the scales (Chinese quince burl?). I’m not sure if I’m really thrilled with the “long, sky blue titanium bolsters” (having never seen one of these knives in person), but the overall package sounds very attractive, if a bit pricey.

So does anyone have any thoughts about the relative merits of this knife? I’ve heard really good things about the quality of A.G. Russell’s products, but since I’ve never handled any of his knives I thought it would be a good idea to see if any of the Forumites knew anything about this blade. Any input will be appreciated…

I've seen that knife, I think it's a beauty.
The best part it's from A.G.Russell. Order it, if you don't like it for any reason send it back. I'm not a gambler, but I would be willing to bet, once you get it, you'll feel like you got a real bargain.
Thanks Phil...I'd just about talked myself into ordering it as a Christmas present for myself, and your post was the last bit of encouragement I needed (like anyone really needs to twist my arm for me to get another knife
). I'll let you know how I like it when it arrives...
