Thanks for the post I have 3 Ruanas left but only two are Rudy knives and one is autographed in electric pencil
They are fantastic knives and I knew a Marine once who had two identical knives...just in case he lost one Cool
It looks like the two Ruana brothers are turning out a traditional and excellent product.
The statement he made about Rudy being mainly concerned about the knife's function over finish is true, the ones made by Rudy are less finely finished than the newer ones.

there was also an excellent article after the Ruana about Al Pendray and the rediscovery of Wootz steel
Put in Pendray Wootz and it is about 50 minutes in length

I have friends around Missoula who bought all their hunting knives from Rudy,and used them for many years. Then one day they found out how much they are worth now. The knives are now all in their safes,and no longer used for hunting.
