The RSK™ Mk6™ is everything you need, nothing you don't™. It's an ultra-lightweight fixed blade knife that can be carried as a neck knife or belt knife. Carry this compact knife in your pack or in a pocket.
As the founder of Equipped to Survive™, Doug Ritter is a leading authority on the best gear to get you out of serious situations. So, naturally, his RSK™ (Ritter Survival Knife) models are born and bred to get you home alive. The RSK™ MK6™ is the big brother to the RSK™ MK5, the original survival tin knife that fits in the smallest of kits , and like the Mk5™was developed in collaboration with Georgia knifemaker David White. It is uniquely suited as an EDC fixed blade and will tickle the fancy of any bushcrafter, prepper or survivalist.
The MK6™ is a lightweight and compact survival knife, yet it's large enough to prep a deadfall trap or whittle a feather stick. It has an ergonomic skeletonized frame that fits comfortably in hand and a paracord handle wrap that prevents hotspots during prolonged use. A bright orange paracord lanyard can be unraveled and used for survival. The stainless steel blade has a high flat grind providing the perfect combination of good cutting geometry and strength and a functional stone wash finish.
The RSK MK6™ survival knife comes with a durable glass filled nylon sheath with multiple grommet holes for varied lashing and carry options. A paracord lanyard is provided for neck carry and a belt clip attaches easily to the sheath with the included hardware.
The RSK™ line of knives is just big enough to do the job of keeping you alive, but small enough you'll be happy to carry it all day long.
"Everything you need, nothing you don't™" is a trademark of Douglas S. Ritter.
First off I love the knife. The size, blade design, and the flexibility offered by the sheath are awesome. The blade unfortunately was about butter knife sharp and wandered from about 25° to a crazy almost 40° near the handle. Easy enough to grind out but a bummer in a new knife. In the first couple weeks I removed the weird paracord fob thing (surprisingly huge compared to the pic) and re wrapped the knife starting at the blade and ending in an overhand knot at the end of the handle. The original wrap creates an uncomfortable bump in the front of the handle. I wear it as a neck knife and don't have any issues with the weight, 2.8oz how I have it set up. The overall size and blade shape is more functionally useful than their dogfish neck knife which I have been using.
