- Rudy Ruana began making knives for local outdoorsmen in 1938 as a side job in Bonner, Montana.
- In 1952 he began making knives full time after demand began to grow and the reputation of their quality spread.
- The early knife blades were commonly made from Studebaker leaf springs.
- Elk antler stag has been a fixture for handle grips over the years.
- The cast-in-place aluminum handles are very characteristic of these knives.
- Knives are still being made in the same location today.
