A change in the seasons always signals a time to check old gear and loosen the purse strings for something new.

Ramakko’s Source for Adventure is fully stocked with outdoors equipment for any season and any time of the year. Here’s a quick look at some items for October, November and December that are sure to be a hit on the trail this season.

Make the cut

The Outdoor Edge Razor-Blaze series has fast become a staple in the hunting field. It is easy to see why. It is affordable, durable and practical. It is also sharp as can be. The company boasts the knife is the sharpest, strongest, replacement razor- knife available, with blades that change safely and easily at the push of a button. The blade is 3.5-inches long and the knife is eight-inches overall. The steel is Japanese 420J2 stainless. The knife also comes with a pack of replacement blades. It is made for heavy duty field work and gets the job done. It retails between $50 to $80.

“With the replacement blades, you always have a sharp blade in the field,” Ramakko’s sales consultant Derek McDonald said. “They have been out for a few years and they work well. We sell a lot of them.”
