Russell Klingbeil Knife

Russell Klingbeil died in January 2004. He was a member of the USMC. An avid surfer and weight lifter. He was an accomplished designer and engineer of fire-sprinkler systems. He was very much into Harley Davidson motorcycles. Remarkably talented at drafting, he was also very good at drawing, often things that would make me laugh and my aunt smack him on the arm. He was an outdoors-man who camped and was an aficionado of the rugged mountain-man lifestyle of yesteryear. He was a black-powder rifleman as well as an accomplished knife-maker.

Here is a Spear Point Boot Knife he made. there were 67 of these made between November 1998 and January 1999. This one is numbered 001.
