Well done and high quality!

All three models where made while Pete Kershaw was still at the company. The construction of the above knives is very similar to the original A.G. Russell Sting Boot Knife. They are drop forged one piece all metal with scales added to the all metal frame. I had a customer in Austin, Texas back many years ago that took one of the sand blasted German models to his work place and X-rayed it to see how it was made. He said it had a hollow cavity in the handle with an adjustable weight added to make the knife balance well. I think the same manufacturer in Germany made both A.G. Russell and Kershaw models and that was Othello in Solingen. Othello went out of business in the late 1990's. All three have the word Rostfrei on the blade.
