He made and designed many cool knives and helped many knife makers along their path throughout the years.

His heart gave out on him at 85. RIP

His catalog is one of the reasons I got so heavily into knives. That was what I waited around for to see what the “new” hot knife was that came out....way before the knife/internet craze.

Just saw this. RIP Mr Russell. I have one of his Lockback Folders with the VG-10 Japanese steel. Probably my favorite knife. Knife world will miss him.
