I had a chance to pick up a pair of Rudy M Ruana knives. Does any body know when they were made with walnut slabs.

Where is the "M" marking? The name was Rudy H Ruana. The M marked knives would date from 1962-1983. I have the book HEAR THE HAMMER about Ruana knives. A quick scan of the book shows wood slabs or inserts was an option in place of the normally seen elk antler handles. Do the sheaths have a Buck head with 2 crossed knives below? That also ended in 1983. Rudy retired in 1984. Rudy had his son inlaw working in the shop starting in about 1964. Good knives.

I stand corrected. They are Rudy H Ruana. Yes the one sheath I got was stamped with the deer head and crossed knifes. The sheath also has a square bottom with holes in the back piece of leather for a strap to tye down to your leg. There is no "m" on the stamping by the arched R.h.Ruana

A pic of the knife would allow a definitive answer... some early knives were only marked R.H. Ruana...and the very last knives were also only marked R.H. Ruana... I've had a few.....
