Here is one I recently got. It isn't on the shop Ruger page but came from them on a Sale.
It is pretty sweet.

These CRKT knives are all made in China but the quality seems to be OK.

The "China" markings bug the heck out of me, but they're built to CRKT's specs & are good quality knives. I haven't picked up a "Ruger" marked CRKT yet, but I've had a M16 "Big Dog" (below) & a M16-01Z spear point for years.

These look like very nice knives, where they are made in China they seemed to be priced too high. My first choice in knives are Kershaw I bought a made in USA Kershaw at Cabela's last year for $89.00 & a made in China Kershaw at Big 5 Sports for $22.00. Even though my made in China Kershaw folding knife was $22.00 the typical Kershaw quality is there and very great quality stainless steel blade. Now of the made in China CRKT knives were priced in the $40.00-$50.00 range I would buy one.

I have about a dozen CRKT folders, fixed blades, T-hawks, Parang/machetes, etc. in my collection. I only bought the first one directly from CRKT. All the rest came from other on-line sellers- Amazon, eBay, and other sources. All of those were priced significantly lower than buying direct from CRKT.

CRKT partners with blade-smiths from all over the world to offer unique knife designs from great designers. The quality of all of my CRKT collection is first rate.

Another great source for knives is Coast Cutlery. Fantastic quality tactical folders and equally fantastic quality LED flashlights. For knife-nuts like me, look up CFK Cutlery on eBay. They make unique tool steel and real Damascus blades in Portland, OR, from British and German forged steels.

In buying knives on eBay, look for sellers like Belote and Theknifeguy, and search Amazon also for good prices on all knife brands. Most of my Ka-Bars and Cold Steel blades came from Amazon, not direct purchase from the makers, and Amazon often beats eBay prices. If you are an Amazon Prime member, your stuff ships by two day delivery for free shipping.

Nice...thanks for the update...I've been collecting knives lately...mostly Cold Steel stuff...but am open to a few other manufactures...I have several Gerber, Cold Steel, Glock (knives), and lately, Kershaw knives!

I wasn't aware they were available with the Ruger name on them!

Nice looking knives! I prefer Benchmade and Spyderco for folders and Bark River for fixed Blades.

I like CRKT knives. While I have a number of skinning knives it is my CRKT Dragon's Claw Fighting Knife that is my CRKT knife. It sits beside me while I am in my favorite chair. You never know these days with home invasions. I am an old Eagle Scout that believes in being prepared and if you searched around my home or my person for that matter you just might be surprised. Some of my friends where I worked always came to me to ask advise about guns, calibers, and yes knives. They did't call me "Mad Max" for nothing you know, lol.
