Thank you Sal, for letting us know.
A sad day, to be sure. A giant in the industry, and a fantastic human being.
Russell’s obituary says up until October 10, he was still working at his office designing knives and talking with customers.
“Saturdays were especially important to him. He would spend most of his hours that the store was open on that day, talking to customers. He especially enjoyed the little ones.”
On October 12, 2018, A.G. Russell III exchanged his earthly life for eternal peace with his Lord Jesus Christ.
During what was supposed to be a routine angiogram to check for blockage in a coronary artery, A G. Russell’s heart gave out and he left this world.
While his physical presence will no longer be here, the force that was A.G. Russell will always be with us, the A.G. Russell Knives staff members, friends and the knife community around the world.
