Doug Ritter has announced that the Mini-RSK Mk1-G2, manufactured by Hogue, is now available exclusively from KnifeWorks.com. The fully ambidextrous Mini-RSK Mk1-G2 (Generation 2) features Ritter's signature 3-D milled G10 handle. The blade on the knife is 2.9 inches long and has a signature wide-chord, high flat-ground drop point blade in super-premium CPM 20CV steel. It has an ambidextrous ABLE Lock and other refinements, including G10 grips and a stainless steel liner. The Mini-RSK Mk1-G2 weighs in at just 2.6 ounces and has a closed length of 4 inches.
The Mini-RSK Mk1-G2 is a compact, conveniently sized version of Ritter's highly praised original RSK Mk1-G2. This utility folder will meet blade length restrictions that exist in some jurisdictions or locations which still limit carry knives to a maximum 3-inch blade length.
Ritter says that creating the Mini-RSK Mk1-G2 was not as simple as just scaling down the full-size RSK Mk1-G2. “The smaller the knife, the trickier it is to get the ergonomics right. But, with Hogue's perseverance, we have created a Mini without sacrificing stellar ergonomics and performance.”
The Mini-RSK Mk1-G2 is initially available with either a Black or Orange G10 handle and a stonewashed CPM 20CV high carbon powder metallurgy stainless steel blade.
