A.G. Russell introduced the original Sting in the 1970s and the latest iteration, the Sting 3B, hails from a pedigree that is both proven and prodigious. The Sting 3B is a boot knife that is ultra lightweight, yet large enough for self defense in any close quarters situation. The satin dagger blade is sharpened on both edges and is ideal for self defense. G10 handle scales add texture to the skeletonized full tang knife and they're removable for easy cleaning or customization. A nylon fob adds real estate to the handle for a solid purchase in hand.
The Sting 3B includes a glass reinforced nylon sheath with a removable stainless steel spring clip for attaching to the boot, waistband or gear. The clip is reversible for tip up or tip down carry. The sheath has a molded lanyard hole for attaching paracord for tip up neck carry. The sheath retention is solid and strong.
The Sting 3B is lightweight, portable and ready to protect at a moment's notice.
Simply put, A.G. Russell eats, sleeps and breathes knives. He was the first member of the Knife Digest Cutlery Hall of Fame, a founding member of the Knifemakers’ Guild, founded the Knife Collectors Club™, and started the first mail order knife business. Even with a pedigree like that, if you ask him what he enjoys most, he’ll still tell you it’s designing custom knives.
