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

The Price of this knife is $,2995 – a 10% Deposit is required to hold the knife.  

 The original design of this knife was created by George W. Sears, this is Rare Old Ruana Brassie was Rudy’s way of honoring that design.  


This knife does not appear to ever have been used, it still has the Original Forge and Grind marks on the blade from Rudy’s stone. Also, the Custom Thumb Ridges were hand applied by Rudy with a Hacksaw (another Rare feature). 


The rare Bow-Tie marking was applied by Rudy’s own hand.  


  The wide Skinning blade is 1  1/2″ wide with a Forged Custom Shape.    


The Thick Elk Antler Butt cap on this knife has dark Gnarly grain and it has been comfortably sculpted with Finger grooves to nestle into the palm.  This handle will stand up to years of use and with proper care will last a lifetime. 


    This knife will be the pinnacle of any Ruana Collection and certainly would occupy a prominent place in any thorough Custom Collection.


   Complete with the Original pouch Right Hand Leather Belt Sheath.
