For immediate release – from A.G. Russell Knives
A staple in the knife industry, A.G. Russell has a reputation for affordable high-quality knives. It is not unheard of to see knives with the same quality and materials going for twice the price. The latest A.G. Russell offering, the Mosquito Hawk, is no different.
Following design cues from a 2016 release of the lightweight, sleek little Light,n Bug A.G. Russell added the Doodle Bug. Although very different from the Light’n Bug, the Doodle Bug utilized the same materials and construction.
Utilizing carbon fiber scales and a single anodized Titanium liner (also forming the liner lock), the Light’n Bug remained a hit. But people wanted something similar, only a little larger. So, A.G. Russell addressed the requests with the Mosquito Hawk.
Using the same materials and build as the Light’n Bug, the Mosquito Hawk added .25-inch to the blade length. This brings the black Titanium coated 8Cr13MoV blade to 2.75 inches. The blade pivots on bronze washers for a smooth, long-lasting action. Although it doesn’t seem like much, a quarter inch can make a lot of difference.
Goldie Russell had this to say about the additional length, “I have to tell you, when I saw that first sample, my reaction was ‘Well, it’s really not bigger than the Light’n Bug.’ But lay them side-by-side, or hold one in each hand, and there is definitely a difference. There is a ¼ inch difference in the closed length, but the thing that is most noticeable is the blade, particularly the 7⁄8-inch width at the widest point.”
The carbon fiber scales help keep the weight down to a meager 1.2 ounces—perfect for dress slacks. The blue anodized Titanium liner and pocket clip, along with the gold titanium coated fittings really create an impressive aesthetic.
This is a true gentleman’s knife. K&G
