This awesome vintage 1992 A G Russell Knife was custom made in the USA in their custom shop in Arkansas, for L. L. Bean's 80th Anniversary (1912 -1992).
The information sheet included with this knife says "The knife has a blade of 440 high carbon stainless steel, a guard of nickel silver (German silver) and the handle scales are India Stag from antlers harvested from the forest after being shed by the male Sambar stag. The knife is ground by hand by a highly skilled American knifemaker. The knives are serial numbered 001 to 1000. The serial number is on the top of the blade in front of the guard. The knife was shipped in its hand-crafted leather sheath. The guard was covered with masking tape to protect it from scratches which occur when the knife is removed from and replaced into the sheath."
This knife is number 025 of 1000. The stag handles are awesome, with a steel tapered full tang,set with 2 Loveless style pins.
This knife has never been used or sharpened. It is in excellent +++condition except for some discoloration on the guard. The double-stitched, handcrafted,leather sheath with belt loop is in excellent, unused condition. The information sheet is folded, withtears along edges.
Thank you for taking the time to look at this great knife. I will be listing more knives from this collection in the coming weeks.
