CR2381: 2381 RSK Mk6
It's your pocket-sized life preserver.

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™ MK5™ is the original survival tin knife that fits in the smallest of kits. The RSK™ MK6™ is the big brother to the MK5™ and it's uniquely suited to tickle the fancy of bushcrafters, preppers and survivalists alike.

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 a 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 blade has a flat grind and a stone wash finish.

The MK6™ survival knife comes with a durable glass filled nylon sheath with multiple grommet holes for varied lashing and carry options. A belt clip attaches easily to the sheath with the included hardware.

The RSK™ line of knives is just small enough to do the big job of keeping you alive.

Kydex Sheath
Kydex Sheath
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Cons: Handle Material
Great small knife design
I really like the RSK Mk6. The design is very nice. It's comfortable in the hand with a superb blade profile. There's a well executed thumb ramp which enhances grip and control. I'm not really a fan of paracord wrapping on handles but in this case it's pretty comfortable (although I'm not sure how it will hold up to lots of use, or how it will deal with grime and water). Lastly the stone-washed finish is very attractive. It was a pleasant surprise that it came quite sharp OOTB, sharp enough to cleanly shave/pop hairs. Given the middle-of-the-road steel I don't expect outstanding edge retention over the long haul but as a survival knife it should do fine. A good knife can be hobbled by a bad sheath, and here CRKT did not drop the ball. The supplied plastic/kydex sheath is well made and very tight. Included is a belt attachment that mounts to the sheath with screws. This is a good idea IMO since those wishing to use this as a neck knife or for carry in a PSK can forego the weight and bulk of the extra hardware if it's not needed. Ultimately my rating depends on the price. I was lucky to get mine for $22 on sale. At that price it's hard to beat. For $30 or so there's more competition but I still think it's a good blade in that price class.

Great little Survival Knife
This was a great purchase from a local shop and I got to feel it before bringing it home. The ergonomics of the knife are pretty good and feels good and comfortable in your hand. I plan to use it when I hike and always keep it close at hand in the outdoors. The sheath was nice but it was a little rough around the edges on mine (not much of a problem, but I thought I'd mention it).
