Rudy Ruana handmade knives hunting knife. This vintage model 14B skinning knife has a 4" hand ground blade. The aluminum alloy handle is stamped with the three line: "R.H. RUANA / BONNER / MONTANA" logo and a large "M" on the reverse front bolster. T is also a small capital "T" stamped into the handle back. This knife has the typical elk horn inserts sercured by two rivets. Overall I would grade this vintage knife as in good plus condition. The blade has traces of it's original finish; t are some sharpening marks and other usage dings. The handle also shows moderate usage with some minor dings to the aluminum. The elk inserts are in good condition. This knife has been lightly used but not abused. I believe that this model with the "M" stamp dates to the 1960's.

Also included is the original leather sheath. This sheath is contructed with light colored stitching and has five small copper rivets to reinforce the edge. The front is stamped with "RUANA" and the "stag head / crossed knives" logo. This sheath is in good condition: the stitching is tight and the rivets and snap are sound. T is some light usage cuts in the throat area and other small handling marks overall. A very nice, gently used Ruana with a pleasing mellow patina.
