Ruana model 13A hunter-skinner knife, traditional elk stag handle, original leather sheath. Handmade the 1960th-1970th; rare type.
Excellent quality model 13A Hunter-Skinner handmade by the famous RUDY H. RUANA (1903-1986) of Boner, Montana; slightly used condition. This is a superb hunter-skinner handmade by the master himself circa 1962-1970th; (M-marked on the handle near ricasso). Ruana Knives is one of the best makers of hunting knives in the US since the early 1940th. I have a number of vintage American-made collectible knives in the store, please take a look at the store’s American Blades section.
The knife is about 7-3/4″ / 19.7 cm overall; the blade is about 4″ / 10.2 cm. High-carbon steel blade is hammer-forged, heat treated, and oil quenched to provide a superior edge for years to come; the edge is razor-sharp still, the tip is intact. Cast aluminum handle with Ruana’s traditional elk stag scales. All parts are tight with no play; the handle is stamped R.H. Ruana / Bonner / Montana / M. Original vintage “stag-n-knives” logo Ruana leather sheath with copper rivets; typical oxidation around copper rivets is noted for accuracy. The sheath is hand-signed 13A on the back; all stitching and rivets are intact; the leather is still soft and supple.
This knife is of excellent quality overall, with proper care this original vintage Ruana model 13A hunter-skinner knife will last you a lifetime; you will not be disappointed.
