Gear CRKT and Ruger Knife Collaborations Recoil Staff November 3, 2015 Join the Conversation Ruger and CRKT got together to produce a series of blades. And not just one or two knives with a Ruger logo, but 11 different base models with a variety of blade grinds and configurations. Here's what they have to say about it: “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. To purchase or for more information, follow this link.
