Ruger and CRKT introduce Ruger knives to the commercial sporting market. This complete knife line was designed exclusively for Ruger by CRKT master knife-smiths 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 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.

The initial full line of knives is available for sale on ShopRuger.com. A select assortment of Ruger knives also is available at major, national retail outlets.
