BLOOMINGTON, MN (BRAIN) — Q-Outdoor, a division of QBP, is now distributing CRKT (Columbia River Knife & Tool) knives and tools to the cycling market.
“A knife is as much an essential for bikecamping and loaded touring as it is for backpacking,” said Leigh Carter, Q-Outdoor's general manager. “CRKT also gives our dealers a great gift item for holiday sales, and an easy way to start an outdoor category with a high-turn accessory.”
Q-Outdoor is distributing many of CRKT’s top selling knives and mini-tools, including the Eat’N Tool and the ultra-compact Ritter Survival Knife.
CRKT joins MSR, Crazy Creek, MTI Adventurewear, Bertucci Performance Field Watches, Camillus Knives, Scotty Paddlesports, and Kiss My Face as new Q-Outdoor vendors in 2013.
CRKT is based in Tualatin, Oregon, and was founded in 1994.
