Buying American-made products helps support our businesses born right here in the USA and we believe in doing that, so we always make sure to stock them on our shelves. We have a variety of Made in the USA items to choose from and you might be surprised at the range of things you’ll find. I’ve selected a few that shows the diversity of products that you can get right here, at CH Kadels.
One of the best examples of a tried and true red, white and blue company is Case Knives and the American Red Workman Trapper Pocket Knife embodies their spirit. The robust trapper is ready to take on any task with its Tru-Sharp stainless steel clip and long spey blades. The special, high-carbon steel helps the blades hold an edge longer than conventional steel and to be extraordinarily strong and corrosion-resistant. The contoured handle has smooth, red synthetic handle scales with the Case Stars and Stripes shield and user-friendly contours that rest easy in the hand of its hard working owner. Making a bold, rugged statement, the Case American Workman Trapper backs it up with outstanding performance.
The high-quality UTG Leapers AR15 30-Round .223/5.56 Magazine is what you should be using in your AR-15. It just makes sense to pair an American-made magazine with a rifle that was proudly designed and made in the USA. This magazine gives you reliable feeding from a high-longevity stainless steel spring and features a four-way anti-tilt, high-visibility blue follower, along with, a removable, flared floor plate. It’s made of glass-fiber reinforced, matte black polymer that’s impact and heat-resistant and it features a molded-over travel stop and grip texturing. The 30-round magazine also offers open surface areas for applying grip tape.
ReadyWise is one of the premier makers of emergency food and that’s because the fresh ingredients that they start with were grown here. We carry quite a few of their food kits in different sizes perfect for SHTF prepping or for camping trips. The Grab-And-Go Gourmet Food Bucket contains 60 servings of hearty, nutritious and delicious entrees, which is two serving per day for one adult for a month. Each of the meals is made up of both freeze-dried and dehydrated components sealed in Mylar pouches, giving them a 25-year shelf-life. The bucket contains a variety of meals including savory stroganoff, pasta alfredo, chili macaroni, teriyaki rice, creamy a la king and rice, creamy tomato basil, loaded baked potato casserole and creamy vegetable rotini. Simply add water and heat to enjoy the delicious ready-to-eat meal!
One of our most popular American-made items is the Nomad Compact Take-Down Survival Bow. It has an ambidextrous, powerful, resin-infused fiberglass riser and limbs that, when strung, have a 45-lb draw weight and is 16” in overall length. The beauty is that it will disassemble to store in its nylon pouch/quiver so that you can carry it with ease and reassemble it with no tools whatsoever. With the bow, you get three break-down survival arrows that can also be stored in the case, which has a shoulder sling for carry.
