Design by Dirk Pinkerton
Ideally, the knife at your side should be able to tackle any situation while still remaining unobtrusive and ready. Dirk Pinkerton's newest design perfectly encapsulates this idea. The Ruffian is a stout 3" Wharncliffe that is slim and lightweight in the pocket while being an absolute cutting machine. The thin blade stock paired with the wide Wharncliffe blade shape and slightly canted cutting edge give this blade outstanding cutting performance. The long opening hole provides multiple quick deployment options, and the wide handle allows for comfortable use in almost all situations while staying thin and discreet. We've also added a 4-position carry option to make this knife even more accessible. While it may not be the biggest knife, the Ruffian will put in just as much work as a large folder and come out on top!
- Black PVD AR-RPM9 Powder Steel. The Ruffian’s blade is constructed from our proprietary AR-RPM9 steel that perfectly blends edge retention, corrosion resistance, and ease of sharpening. This is the ideal option for an everyday carry knife that will stay strong through all of your adventures.
- Cutting Profile. The Ruffian’s wide Wharncliffe-style blade is designed to maximize cutting power while minimizing overall edge length, meaning that even short cuts bite deep and separate materials with ease, making the 3” blade of this knife effectively do the work of much larger knives. The fine tip is ideal for piercing cuts and tip work, and the slight angle to the blade adds just a little bit more versatility when working on a flat surface, helping to keep your fingers elevated away from the cutting surface. Additionally, the shape of the blade allows for very easy sharpening and maintenance.
- Blade. The Ruffian features a razor-thin 0.11” thick blade stock which allows this knife to glide effortlessly through cuts with incredible accuracy. Coupled with the slim handles and aggressive milling the thin stock also helps to significantly cut down the overall weight of the knife.
- G10 Handle. For people who want their knives to perform under any condition G10 is an excellent handle material option. G10 is temperature resistant, water-resistant, non-reactive, non-conductive, and exceptionally tough under pressure.
- Designer. Dirk Pinkerton is an established knife maker who has been designing for a wide array of knife companies for over a decade. His designs are distinguished by crisp lines, exceptional ergonomics, and blades that are practical and purpose-driven. We’ve been very happy to work with Dirk over the last several years and the Ruffian is his first model in our CJRB line of knives, which we believe is a perfect fit, combining Dirk’s crisp, practical design language and CJRB quality to create an incredible value-oriented knife that performs flawlessly.
