A. G. Russell Pipe Knife
When I began to design the A. G. Russell™ Gentleman's Pen Knife, I realized that this was a perfect opportunity to also create one that is very specialized and was very much in demand decades ago. This is a pipe knife with all parts designed specifically for the pipe smoker. With the decline in the use of tobacco because of health risks, there is not enough demand today to produce such a specialized knife because of the minimum quantities we have to make. But, by making it a variation of the Pen Knife, I could produce smaller quantities. We expect to make this knife just this once, so the quantities are going to be small. I expect that it will appeal to pipe smokers and to a certain group of collectors.
The tools include a 2-1⁄4" bowl scraping blade, a 2-1⁄2" pipe stem reamer, and a tobacco tamper at the butt of the handle. The scraping blade and the stem reamer are 8Cr13MoV at 57-59 Rc. Bolsters, liners, springs and tamper are stainless steel. Measures only 3-1⁄4" closed. Weighs 1.5 oz. Made in China.
