I designed this knife in 2008 and introduced it as the 2008 Texas Ranger® Knife. Each A.G. Russell™ Texas Ranger® model is limited to one thousand pieces. Each model will then be offered in civilian dress.
The lock is designed with a space saving coil spring which I prefer because it will hold up longer giving more life to the knife and it makes the action smoother therefore the knife is easier to open and close. A stop pin keeps the blade from ever meeting the back spring/locking bar, allowing more room for a wider blade than you usually find in a handle of this width. One of my pet peeves is the way the inside surfaces of most production knives are finished. Take a look inside this one, you will find the finish comparable to the high quality, high price semi-production knives being made today. This is a remarkable knife and will give you many years of pleasure and service.
Measures 4-1/4" closed and is available in three handle materials, premium Cocobolo from our own storeroom, a really good looking brown Rucarta™ and a bright, bright yellow Delrin® that will make your knife really easy to locate. The 3-3/8" flat ground clip point blade is 8Cr13MoV at 57-58 Rc and measures 3/16" thick and 15/16" wide. We have placed a deep notch on each side of the blade so the thumb can be used to swing the blade open with one hand, either hand. The liners, bolster, caps and the federal shield are all 400 series stainless steel. Includes a handsome braided brown leather thong for lifting the knife from the pocket. If you wish to carry the knife on your belt, a Dozier designed belt pouch is available. Knives and leather pouch all made in China.
