Designed by USA maker Ryan Johnson and built by CRKT for Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. the Cordite Compact survival blade is the ultimate camper's pal. Mr. Johnson crammed so many awesome aspects into this compact package. The Cordite is brand new and ready to hit the trail.
The Blade: Immediately noticeable is how thick (0.185") the full tang blade stock is. It gives you confidence right off the bat. Its utility drop point blade will serve you well in many cutting tasks. Slightly hollow ground to supreme sharpness offering 2.25" of cutting edge. All of the steel here has received a dark black stonewashed finish that will hide a lot of the wear and tear.
The Handle & Sheath: A skeletonized handle helps lighten the carry plus allows for a nice Paracord wrap which CRKT has already taken the liberty of doing for you. The camo cord wrap provides cushioning in the palm and adds grip even when wet. There is a good-sized cutout creating a choil to keep your fingers out of harm's way. The paracord extends off the handle, ties at the end and has a revolver-cylinder styled heavy duty black bead attached. The Cordite includes a GRN black sheath with several lashing points and pocket/belt clip carry attachment.
If you are in the market for a rugged, tough easy to sharpen field knife the Cordite Compact may be for you. It fits a medium sized hand perfectly and you won't have to worry about beating it up.This is an Officially Licensed Ruger Product built by CRKT Knives.
