Ruana Knife Works

Oct 5, 1998
This family-owned Montana company made me a honey of a custom bowie! The blade and fittings are carbon steel and the handle is black micarta. I haven't torture tested it, but it definitely feels like a part of my hand in any grip I choose. It sharpens fast and holds a scary sharp edge through much use.
If you are looking for a durable knife (fixed-blade) for work, play, or otherwise give these guys a try. (ruanaknf@montana.com)

I have no vested interest in this business, I just like the people and the product is superior.
