The dynamic duo of Elliot and Chris Williamson, better known as Ferrum Forge, has earned a solid reputation for their large, aggressively styled custom knives—but the adept brothers have other tricks up their sleeves, too. Their latest? The RUK: a small keychain-ready utility blade for any light-duty task. Measuring 2.6 inches long and weighing just 1.2 ounces, the RUK is compact and out of the way. It features a slim body made from your choice of copper or brass, both of which will develop a natural patina over time. The spring-loaded blade is designed to retract automatically and stay put safely inside the body. To access it, just slide the stainless steel button forward as far as you need.
Note: This drop is limited to 2000 total units. At checkout, choose between brass and copper.
When you join a drop before it goes into production, you’ll get a few exciting perks:
Don’t have room for a folding knife in your daily carry? Need a secondary edge for smaller cutting tasks? Want an office-friendly tool that won’t raise eyebrows every time you take it out? The RUK covers all the bases. Milled with a textured case back and finger groove, it’s designed for a secure grip. The domed button slides easily on the track when you're ready to put the RUK to work, but it won't catch easily on your pocket. Among the tool’s many uses are opening packages and letters, cutting threads, crafting, and scoring paper, plastic, and cardboard. Carry one every day and you’ll find plenty more.
Founded in 2009, Ferrum Forge started from humble beginnings in Elliot Williamson’s garage in Southern California. Using found pieces of steel like old files and leaf springs, Elliot gradually taught himself the art of knifemaking and metallurgy. As his skills and passion grew, so too did the demand for his work. Luckily, Elliot’s brother Chris joined the team in 2012 to help expand Ferrum Forge to what it is today: a small operation dedicated to designing and producing custom knives through a rigorous process of development, machining, iteration, and quality control.
Since its founding in 2000, WE Knife has set a new standard for manufacturing in China. With a professional research and development team, high-quality facilities, and a commitment to precision manufacturing techniques, the company produces a wide range of cutlery manufactured to the highest tolerances.
