RUGER® CENTENNIAL KNIFE
Designed by award winning knife maker Bill Harsey, this knife incorporates a rugged full tang and handcrafted laminate wood handles with embedded Ruger® eagle medallions affixed with stainless steel grip screws. The handles are contoured for positive grip even in wet conditions. Harsey gave the Centennial knife a sturdy, long swept, semi-drop point satin finish blade; this blade design is field proven for cutting efficiency. A 154CM blade steel was selected for excellent, long lasting edge retention. The design, shape, deep bevel grind and finish speaks to rugged, reliable Ruger®.

This whole knife making thing started out as a combinations of my growing up hunting and fishing in the outdoors of Oregon and an interest in working steel which had me welding on logging equipment at the age of 15 years old. My interest in heat treating and manufacturing tool steels is a core to what I do. Design is a core issue to me while the knife continues to be a useful tool in the human hand and it continues to be important even in the day and age of all this electronic technology.
