The sheath Russ designed makes this knife even more unique with the extra pouch. Russ explains: "For me, a horizontal sheath makes getting around easier. It doesn't interfere with your rifle or back pack, and it's not always banging the bush plane or fouling the pack horse rope. I never carry a box of shells out of camp . . . usually just a magazine and the two cartridges in my sheath. They won't rattle around, and the pockets will handle ammunition from .243 up to .338.
No matter what happens, you'll always have those two shells to get you home.

To say Russ is an outdoorsman is a bit of an understatement. A professional fishing and hunting guide, he started making knives when one of his clients brought him a custom knife and dressed an entire moose—without sharpening it. Since then he’s made it his duty to build the kind of tools only he would use. It just so happens his Bear Claw’s™, and Hoist’N Lok®, are the kinds other hunters use as well.
