Doug Ritter

Doug Ritter is an internationally acknowledged authority on survival equipment. He founded and publishes the renowned Equipped To Survive web site (www. and is Chairman of the nonprofit Equipped To Survive Foundation. Doug doesn't claim to be a knifemaker, but he is not shy about promoting the practical design features that he prefers to see in a functional survival tool. In the past few years that has evolved into successful limited production collaborations with a number of makers incorporating his functional knife design philosophy and an eye for simple, practical and beautiful blade design. Doug's aim is to maximize functionality and minimize all else, "everything you need, nothing you don't," as he puts it. The compact RSK Mk5 is his first CRKT collaboration and the first to be distributed widely through normal knife sales channels. Columbia River Knife & Tool is extremely happy to have an expert on personal and outdoor survival on board, and we hope to find other outlets for Doug's specialized expertise.
