Moose AntlersRuss was born and raised in the north woods of Minnesota, hunting, fishing, trapping and logging. After graduation Russ started his career as a big game guide in Idaho, hunting elk, deer, bear, moose and mountain goats in the Selway-Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho. From there his passion for hunting took him to the wilderness of Alaska in 1984. There he started hunting the remote wilderness areas of Alaska for the mighty brown bear, Alaskan moose, barren ground caribou, Dall sheep, Black bear, Sitka black tail deer, Mountain goat, all of the Alaskan big game. This is where Russ found his passion for knives. Having to dress big game as a hunting guide, Russ decided that a knife should not only be razor sharp but also comfortable and functional. Russ’ goal since then has been to design and make the most comfortable, functional, hunting knives possible. Russ started making knives in 1997 with these goals in mind. With all of his outdoor experiences from guiding to taxidermy, expectedly his designs reflect his experiences. Russ would like to thank all of the people who have helped him a long the way from other custom knife makers to his daughter and her encouragement.
