Compact and lightweight are watchwords of today’s personal defense market, and to that end Ruger Knives, by CRKT, introduced the Lightweight Compact Knife (LCK). A folding, liner-lock design, two versions of the LCK are available, one featuring a 3.3", satin-finished, drop-point blade (shown), the other with a 3.2" modified sheepsfoot blade with a black oxide finish. Both knives weigh just 2.7 ozs., have an overall length of less than 7.5" and come with right-side pocket clips for ease of carry. Price: $40. Contact: Ruger Knives; ruger.com/crkt.
