Jess Horn Spyderco's

Postby Dave I » Sat Jun 28, 2003 12:00 am

What can you tell me about Horn Spyderco's ?

I have a chance to pick up two with Black Micarta scales. Both are Mint without boxes . Never sharpened never used one is larger otherwise identical. Thanks. Dave I

Welcome aboard, Dave I! Those are great knives. As you said black macarta handles, it also came in other colors of macarta, and an FRN model. They have a 3" blade, with a 4" handle, in other words the same size as the Delica. If I remember right the steel is AUS8A. I started to buy one years ago, I wish that I had! Good find! RKBA!

Alan-Thanks for the input. They are marked AUS8. TWO different size knives. I think the smaller one is or was called a BABY HORN.They are nice & slim and still feel light even with the Micarta scales. DAVE I

jess horn II, c34, black mic, 8a, pg 23 of 96 dealer cat.. intro'd 95

c38 is frn(8a, with "jesshorn" repeating for the handle grip), c27 is bone(ats-34)

ag russell has a SS version at: http://www.agrussell.com/spyderco/agsp-2ss.html

Dave I: Jess Horn is my absolute favorite designer. It is reported that he is near retirement. I am intent on acquiring as many of his designs as possible. If they appeal to your eye, I would suggest you do the same. A.G. Russell's website offers two Jess Horn models--an all--stainless steel Spyderco (3-3/4-inch handle) and a black micarta model (two sizes). Beautiful knives. A search of the Internet to see some of Jess's handmade custom models is a treat.

mmm... I have plenty of praises for the Jess Horn-Spyderco collaborations.. They are amazing! My favourite was the Jess Horn lightweight.. It was stolen some years ago! I really loved that particular <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>! Some small quantity are still available at AG-RUSSELL knives.. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Here are a few of the variations of the Horns. My fav is the flatground white micarta, a jewel.
