Gear New: the Ruger Muzzle-Brake by CRKT Industry News March 7, 2017 Join the Conversation We recently got word of the Ruger Muzzle-Brake by CRKT. It's an old school knife style manufactured with modern design technology. Industry News: New: the Ruger Muzzle-Brake by CRKT Here's what they want you to know about it. The Muzzle-Brake, designed by Ken Onion, has elements from a traditional Bowie design but is developed with the construction techniques of today. With its stout full tang blade, it can be used as a chopper in camp or for fashioning a quick shelter in the forest if needed. Its clip point blade shape, featuring a blood groove, is perfect for making quick work of butchering an animal after a successful hunt. The handle is glass filled nylon construction that wraps around a thick blade tang. The sure-grip surface matches the Ruger American Rifle stock texture with Ruger eagles embossed into both sides of the grip. The Muzzle-Brake is part of the exclusive Ruger knife line; the 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 six master knife-smiths 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.
