I've had the Russell #3, with overlap sheath, for over 15 years. My girlfriend at the time bought it for me as a gift, so I bought her a ring. She still has the ring, and I still have the knife, so I guess that worked out. wink

Thanks all for your suggestions, it certainly is keeping me busy on the net with research, I do like the look of the Buck Mayo kaala as a back up.
Cheers

You really have hundreds of good options. I would look at Ragweed Forge for many Scandi choices at excellent prices. Ragnar's service is top end.

The Grohman choices are also really good.

I liked the Grohman shape so much I had Rick Frigault make me his custom version…a Basadie along with a Chinto companion knife.

There are literally hundreds of great custom makers out there who can do just about anything you desire....but I would likely give Ragnar a look.

The birchbark handled Iisakki Järvenpää 1244 is one of my favorties from him.



Note...not the standard sheath.

Yup. It's top notch. And works quite well just tucked into a cargo pocket on your pants/shorts.

Moab you should not get any problems with carrying a knife or two in your hold luggage but i am sure you are quite aware of that.

Look at the Randall RAT knives.

I have their 3" fixed blade in 1095 and really like it. Not too big...not too small.

I've got the same Iisakki Järvenpää from Ragweed, and it's one of my favorite knives as well!

Some good "neck" knives are the A.G. Russell Woodswalker, Hunter Scalpel, and Bird&Trout models. They come with kydex sheaths and the Woodswalker is also available with a really nifty leather pocket sheath. They have other, larger models available with kydex sheaths as well. They also have the Canadian knives, by Russell rather than Grohman, which are really well made and well shaped blades. Check out www.agrussell.com.
Knives in checked luggage is usually not a problem with airport security, just don't try to board with one in your carry-on bag or in your pocket.
Hope that helps.

Those are, in fact, by Grohmann. The confusion arises because A.G. Russell calls them D.H. Russell knives, which is the proper name of the Grohmann knives ... the design is by D.H. Russell of Toronto, who went into partnership with Grohmann to produce the knives.

Everyone I know always just called them Russell knives.
