Description

RUDY RUANA  

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 also has a Rare Double M Stamp (where the M jumped when Rudy was hammering it on Bolster).

  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. img_1494_opt

   Never cleaned or altered, just an honest early Ruana made by Rudy.
