Here is a superb example of vintage Chopper by Rudy Ruana. This is a “Rudy Made” 27 C – Custom Finn with a Custom Ordered Blade Length.
This knife is a great representation of a knife Hand Crafted by Rudy. Like many older Ruanas I see, this knife has never been cleaned, sharpened or altered in any way!
This knife has a Big 9″ Blade and Mid Height Hollow grind and Tapered Perpetrator Tip. I have owned this knife for more than 12 years.
The Original Thick Elk Antler inserts show Great color and almost no shrinkage!
This knife does not appear to ever have been used or carried. The Guard area where the Aluminum melds to the tang of the knife is especially well done.
This Rare knife has Rudy’s Bowtie Signature.
This model was Discontinued from the Ruana catalog sometime in the early 1990’s.
The Sheath is the Original Deluxe Sheath by the Ruana Shop, with the old original Large Large Copper Rivets. Never Cleaned or altered in any way.
A Great Old Ruana, straight from my own Collection, Priced Right.
