This design is over 100 years old ~ the knife itself is from my personal Ruana collection. At one time I had accumulated more than 80 Ruana knives, I have decided to offer my collection here for those that appreciate history and Rudy’s work as one of the Founding Fathers of American Custom Knife making.
Fort Henry Custom Knives
This is an early original that was clearly made by Rudy.
This knife has never been used, it still has the Original Forge and Grind marks on the blade from Rudy’s stone.
This knife has the Traditional R.H. Ruana Stamp
The wide Skinning blade is 1 1/2″ wide with a Forged Custom Shape.
The Thick Elk Antler Inserts on this knife have dark Gnarly grain and they have been comfortably contoured. Still tight in the handle.
Never cleaned or altered, just an honest early Ruana made by Rudy.
Complete with the Original, Smooth Back, Right Hand Leather Belt Sheath.
