Nice looking knife.  AG Russell has had, and continues to have, some pretty neat knives from some great makers.

Very nice knife. Do you intend to really use it? I know I couldn't resist.

You bet. First thing I did was get the waterstones out and redo the edge. haven't really cut much yet, other than paper to check the entire edge for burs. took some time to sharpen, pretty hard steel. did make a few curls on some soft wood to help before stropping. I don't own a knife I don't carry and use.
