Tualatin, Oregon, U.S.A.— January 19, 2010

Here’s the CRKT® RSK Mk5™. This lightweight skeletonized fixed

blade fits in a mint tin, yet it’s a knife you can bet your life on™.

Doug Ritter’s RSK Mk5™ (Ritter Survival Knife) by Columbia River Knife & Tool®

(CRKT®) is not 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 or stash-away location, yet robust enough that it’s a

knife you can bet your life on™.

Doug is the founder of the Equipped To Survive™ web site (www.equipped.org) and an

international authority on survival equipment. The RSK Mk5 is a collaborative effort based on

Georgia knifemaker David White’s custom Shrewd Survival Knife, itself the result of

collaboration with Dr. Andrew Osbourne.

Weighing in at less than an ounce, the skeletonized fixed blade sports a 1.75” wide-chord

drop-point blade with a high flat grind. The high-carbon steel blade has Doug’s preferred

stonewashed finish for improved corrosion resistance.

The ergonomic curved handle provides a secure and comfortable two-finger grip while a

brightly colored nylon cord fob adds additional length and grip.

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 Mk5 will do its part to keep you alive and

kicking.

The RSK Mk5 includes a custom-fitted Zytel® sheath and a mint-size carrying tin along

with Doug’s suggestions for building up your own personal survival kit. Considering that it

could save your life, it is certainly worth its MSRP of only $26.99.
