Doug Ritter's RSK® Mk5 (Ritter Survival Knife) is not necessarily a knife you would use all day for normal work tasks. But, based on Doug's philosophy that "if it isn't with you, it can't save you," it is compact and light enough to fit in almost any small personal survival kit, stash-away location or hang from your neck, yet robust enough that it's a knife you can bet your life on™.
Developed in collaboration with custom knifemaker David White, the RSK® MK5 weighs in at less than an ounce. The skeletonized fixed blade sports a 3Cr13 stainless steel 1.75" wide-chord drop-point blade with a high flat grind. The ergonomic curved handle provides a secure and comfortable two-finger grip while a nylon cord fob adds additional length and grip. It is available in Stonewashed and Black finishes.
Use it to make fuzz sticks, construct shelter, gut a fish, dress game or for self-defense. Whether it is wilderness or urban survival, the RSK® Mk5 will do its part to keep you alive and kicking.
Includes a GRN sheath and a mint-size bright orange Survival Preparedness Tin along with Doug's suggestions for building out a survival kit using the tin.
