The online community of knife collectors
A.G. Russell Knives is the oldest mail order knife company in the world. We sell only the finest cutlery from William Henry, Randall, Böker, Columbia River Knife & Tool, Kershaw, SOG, Benchmade, Spyerdco, Canal Street Cutlery, and more.
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.
