Like a finely-adjusted rifle scope, the Ken Onion designed Windage with Veff serrations has been fine-tuned into the perfect knife. Boasting a stonewashed drop-point blade with flipper, IKBS ball bearing pivot system for smooth opening, Ruger call-out on the pivot and a tough anodized aluminum handle with innovative pocket clip for right or left-hand carry, this knife is game for anything.
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) and CRKT are pleased to introduce Ruger knives to the commercial sporting market. This complete knife line was designed exclusively for Ruger by CRKT master knifesmiths and is being built by CRKT, an industry leader in knives and tools. "Ruger is focused on bringing affordable, rugged and reliable products to our consumer base," said Chris Killoy, Ruger President and COO, "As we looked to expand our licensing program, we knew that we wanted a knife manufacturer that shared these goals. CRKT is a great fit," he concluded.
Columbia River Knife and Tool is proudly American and has established itself as a leader in developing unique, award-winning, innovative knife designs and mechanisms that push the envelope. Since 1994, this Oregon-based company has made tools that people are proud to carry - affordable, rugged and reliable products that perfectly complement Ruger firearms. "When Ruger approached CRKT to work together on a knife line, we knew that it would be a perfect fit for the commercial sporting market," said CRKT Chairman of the Board and Founder, Rod Bremer. "The parallels between how Ruger and CRKT serve the marketplace are uncanny. Pairing with an iconic American brand like Ruger was simply a no-brainer," he continued.
This exclusive Ruger knife line includes designs for everyday carry, hunting, tactical uses, and self-preparedness. The knives are crafted in varying sizes and finishes, with an assortment of blade edges. Developed by five master knifesmiths who combined their knowledge of the art with aesthetic details from Ruger firearms, the line offers unique knives with the important features that every good knife should have. These knives are purpose-built to be durable and highly functional in the environments where Ruger customers will expect them to perform.
Ken is the real deal. The youngest ever inductee into the Blade Magazine Hall of Fame in 2008, he is recognized as one of the most innovative and successful knife designers of all time. In 1996 he created the first commercially successful assisted opening mechanism, and 20 years later unveiled his award-winning Field Strip Technology. As the designer of the successful Eros folder series, as well as the award-winning Hi Jinx, Ken never seems to be at a loss for ideas.
