The Portland-based crew at CRKT have teamed up with Ruger to develop a range of knives exclusive to the firearms maker. The range includes a handful of options from hunting to tactical use blades, and we decided to focus on one built specifically for everyday carry – the CRKT Go-N-Heavy Compact knife.
Developed for EDC, this folding knife comes complete with locking liner and thumb stud. It was designed Bill Harsey, and is just as tough as it looks. The blade itself is a stonewashed 3.5-inch drop-point blade constructed from 8Cr13MoV steel, and is mated to a rugged, hard anodized sure grip handle. It also comes with a nylon fabric sheath for convenient transport. The knife is currently for sale through Ruger’s online store with a price tag of $79. [Purchase]
