When Ruger—the popular firearm manufacturing company— decided to get into the knife business with a line of knives designed to bring the company’s essence to blades, they went with CRKT.

The result of the partnership is a knife line that’s built for everyday carry, self-preparedness, durability, and affordability. No better knife embodies those elements than the Accurate.

The Ruger by CRKT Accurate is a simple yet effective fixed blade hunting knife designed by Bill Harsey, a man with 21 years of designing knives in his back pocket.

Here is an excellent video from Deer Hunting:

Take one look at this knife and you’ll understand why it’s called the Accurate. The 4.4-inch blade is made from functional 8Cr13MoV with a hardness level of 58-59 HRC. This iteration comes with a versatile drop point blade, but you can also get a clip point version if that’s your preference.

The full tang is covered with rubber overmold scales that give you a reliable grip when field dressing an animal in the cold. Separating the blade from the handle is a stainless steel bolster with finger guard. This adds even more security when wielding the knife in the field.


A Ruger medallion adorns the black handle, and the CRKT logo is laser-etched into the back of the blade. The knife also comes with a reinforced fabric-nylon sheath because you’ll be carrying this knife wherever you go.
