Up for sale is a signed RH Ruana 20A 6" Deluxe Skinner with Antique Black Micarta handle with sharpening stone.Also in this sale is an original copy from Ruana of a 1969 Ruana Knives price list and catalog. As displayed in the pictured documents, this is a 20A 6" knife which lists measurements and prices from that time period. Also a copy print of when Rudy Ruana was conferred with membership into the American Bladesmith Hall of Fame and an original letter from Michael H. Hangas telling retailers to give these out with knife purchases straight from our drug store in Great Falls, Montana. Going back to the Micarta handle, my father who graduated in Missoula, Montana knew Rudy personally and started selling knives in our drug store in Great Falls, Montana in the late 1960's. He sold Rudy's knives for over 40 years. My father told me that there was a short period of shortage of elk horn so there ismaybe 5% of thesebuilt pior to the M stamp let alone sighed and unusedand Rudy could not fulfill my father's order, but asked if he would like them made with Micarta handles and he would get them right out to him. Thus there are very few of these made from this time period. Knife has never been used and naturally aged. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, my name is Mike.
