HTM Madd Maxx 7 with Mammoth Ivory

An A. G. Russell™ Exclusive - Limited to 30 Pieces

Phil's Gibb's association with this monster of a knife (the Madd Maxx 7) stems from Darrel Ralph's presentation of the Madd Maxx 5.5 to Camillus Cutlery in late 2002. Phil, somewhat in jest, asked Darrel if he was ever going to make them in "men's sizes". Shortly after that Darrel presented Phil with the "Gibbs" prototype. Camillus put the knife into production, but only made 125 before the company closed. Today those knives go for absurd prices whenever they show up on eBay®.

Phil now works with us here at A. G. Russell and because of his history with the knife, between us and the folks at HTM the knife is simply referred as "The Gibbs". In 2012, Darrel, under the Hand Tech Made label, began to produce a version of the Madd Maxx 7 again. We offered them in our catalogs with great success and HTM has been producing limited quantities for us with a carbon fiber onlay.

To take the uniqueness of this knife to a different level, we worked together with Darrel and HTM to create this unique and outstanding version with a onlay of interior Mammoth Ivory on the obverse side of the Ti6A14V titanium frame and a 7" sabre-ground blade of CPM-S35V stainless at 57-59 Rc. with a handrubbed finish. The blade is engraved with DDR on the obverse side and HTM on the reverse side.

Like the original, this is a Frame lock. Measures an impressive 8" closed and weighs 11.7 oz. Ships in a black zipper pouch. Made in the U.S.A.

It's a very handy little blade. It's just long enough to do almost everything. Thick enough to feel solid enough while doing it. (1/8" thick steel or close to it)

The bone scales will acquire some nice character over the years. The titanium liners and backspacer make it lightweight and the deep carry pocketclip make for very unobtrusive carry. Honestly, there isn't a thing I don't like about it.....ok, maybe the thumbstud is a little sharp. But a little sandpaper will fix that in seconds.

The VG-10 steel is also a treat. Very good edge retention, fairly easy sharpening and will take a KILLER edge.

That's a nice one, Alex. I see it has VG-10 steel, what do you think of it?

A quick pic of one of my favourite knives. My A.G. Russell One Hand knife with titanium handle and bone scales.

I've been carrying that little knife for over a year now (not every day but at least once a week) and I'm still in love with it. The lock/closing system is simply one of the coolest ones on the market. It closes FAST, and smoothly. It looks great. Is comfortable in use and looks great.

If you've never used a knife with the A.G. Russell frontlock you owe it to yourself to at least give it a try.

Does anyone know what the January release is?

If you scroll down (or to the next page) there was this comment from the company  a little while back:

We will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the founding of A. G. Russell Knives in 2014. Each month during the year we plan to offer a different knife marked with our 50th Anniversary logo to commemorate this milestone. Knives will range from limited editions of 50 handmade knives to 500 of some production knives, and others with quantities in between.
Be sure to follow announcements on facebook and in our weekly e-mails. Please share this information with your friends who have an interest in knives.

So I suspect he's got something in the pipeline. When I was over a year and a half ago they were working on some models that I haven't seen come out yet. So I'm sure they'll be coming along at sometime.

Alex, you usually keep up with the latest news on here. Have you heard anything about a Anniversary knife, for Mr. AG.?
