CRKT Expands Line of Ruger Products


    Ruger teamed up with Columbia River Knife & Tool a few years back to produce a line of Ruger branded knives and tools. It seems that line has been successful, and the two companies have further expanded the line this year. The new products include a fixed blade knife called the Muzzle-Brake and a pair of writing instruments: Bolt-Action Pen and Bolt-Action Pencil.


    The Muzzle-Brake is a large fixed blade knife designed by Ken Onion. It is a Bowie style knife that has a 7.5″ blade and full tang. The blade has a clip point and a plain edge. It is made of 8Cr13MoV steel with a 58-59 HRC. CRKT gives the blade a black powder coat finish.

    The 11.1 ounce survival knife has an overall length of 12″ and comes with a injection molded nylon sheath. The sheath is adjustable for multiple carry positions. A Ruger emblem is molded into the flass filled nylon handle. This new knife will carry a MSRP of $99.99.

    Writing Tools


    bolt action pencilThey say that a harsh word can cut deeper than a knife. If so, CRKT has you covered with a pair of new writing tools that have a bit of firearms flavor. Both the pen and pencil version of these instruments use a rifle-like handle to deploy the writing tip.

    The pen uses Fisher Space Pen refills while the pencil uses the Schmidt Pencil System. These sell individually for $49.99. I suppose these would go well with your bolt action flashlight.
