Designed by USA maker Ryan Johnson and built by CRKT for Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. the Powder-Keg is an explosive survival blade ready for any occasion. This fixed knife is big, bad and packs a lot of punch. The Powder-Keg is brand new and ready to go where the road takes you.
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 clip point blade will serve you well in many cutting tasks. Slightly hollow ground to supreme sharpness offering just over 4.25" 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: Black and tan rubber overmold handle scales with inset Ruger medallion provide cushioning in the palm and adds grip even when wet. There is a large finger groove cutout allowing a solid grip on this beast. The Powder-Keg includes two lanyard holes at the pommel and a Tan Leather sheath with belt loop and several lashing points plus hardware.
If you are in the market for a rugged, tough easy to sharpen field knife the Powder-Keg may be for you. It fits a medium-large sized hands perfectly and you won't have to worry about beating it up.This is an Officially Licensed Ruger Product built by CRKT Knives.
