As you have all guessed by now I'm a huge fan of quality American Made Products. And when it comes to Made in America you just can't do better than the guys from Gil-Tek.

Gil-Tek is famous for their RUK-2 utility knife, and rightly so because it is second to none. While others charge an outrageous price for Chinese made knives, these guys offer a grade A fully American designed and made product.

Now they have come out with the RUK-S.

The RUK-S is the same as the RUK-2 but better. It actually does the same thing, but it's only made out of one piece of Aluminum, Brass or Titanium, so in a way it's more heavy duty although it's actually lighter and more minimalist. Only things missing are the bottle opener and the wire cutter. As for myself I can't really recall when I used either since almost all tools come with bottle openers and I really don't cut wire.

The RUK-2 is an ECD knife that's always in my pocket and the RUK-S is even better if all you want is no frills solid cutting at an even lower price tag than the original. Another winner from GilTek!
