Here is an example of Ruana Knives Unofficial Bird N Trout Blade, this is of course the Steel Head
I have an older example of this Model and it is the Ruana that I personally carry the most
This knife was most likely made in the Early 90’s ~ it has a couple of slight differences to the model currently available; This example appears to have a bit more Recurve to the blade, it has a Larger Finger Choil in front of the Guard and it has a Thong Hole (which I believe is no longer an Option).
It has a Forged 1095 High Carbon Steel Blade that is 3 1/2” long, still as sharp as the day it was made. I have owned this knife for close to 15 years ~ it has a couple of tiny Spots on one side of the Blade and some surface marks on the Cast Aluminum Handle, but otherwise it is in Superb Shape.
Original Elk Antler inserts show Great color with No Shrinkage. Very Comfortable and Secure Full Grip Handle.
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 model is currently still being made and the current Retail Price from Ruana is $375 Plus Shipping.
The Sheath is the Original Full Leather Sheath by the Ruana Shop, with the Large Copper Pins.
Some tiny dots of discoloration on the blade and the Copper Pins have Green Build Up. Never Cleaned or altered in any way.
A Great Custom Ruana, straight from my own Collection, Priced Right.
