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 1997 has been to design and make the most comfortable, functional, hunting knives possible.
The Classic Alaskan is what the Kommer designed Fox knife of the same name is based off of. This Classic Alaska by Russ Kommer features a mirror polished RWL-34 steel blade with his classic logo and matching bolsters that have been nicely dovetailed over the snakewood scales with red liners. Full tapered tang construction with .128" blade stock and 1" blade depth. Knife comes in a hand tooled brown leather left handed sheath with belt loop. Knife is brand new.
