Though it says the knives are made the way they always were, I'm not sure the blades are laminated now, as they were when I bought one from Harry in the mid-1960's.

Thanks Steve. If it's okay, I'd like to share this article with the Buck Forum guys. They will really enjoy it too.

Hey Steve,
it's exactly this book that I had bought in the PX in Heidelberg in 1981 along with my Buck 112. It had opened my eyes... Thanks for posting it! (and sorry for getting OT frown )

Hi, I recently bought an old, unfinished blade, AG Russell made.
He has a defective stamp - apparently on impact he bounced several times.
Steel laminated carbon, has a point from the test hardness.
The blade was given to my friend, he gave it to his friend,
who made a knife in the image of Harry's Morseth knife
(which is shown in the photo with binoculars and ammunition).
I'm interested in your opinion about what happened?

what happened was a nasty looking old blank was turned into a gorgeous knife....just guessing, there.

As for the stamp, if manually stamped, which I suspect, yeah, it just bounced, with the hammer. If a machine press, it shifted and nobody caught it. I have no idea how Harry's son was doing things before AG bought him out, nor if blade predates the son trying unsuccessfully to keep the shop going.

Thank you!

I know for sure that this is a stamp A.G. Russel
after they bought Morseth trademark.

Finally there were qualitative photos

Harry would have approved far more of that one, than quite a few which came after.

When you tire of looking at that one, I shall be glad to give you my address.
