R.H.R. Grand Knives
Dave Ruana started making knives in
1980 under the direct guidance of his Grandfather Rudy Ruana. All R.H.R
Grand Knives are made from start to finish free hand by Dave Ruana.
They are power forged from the finest hi-carbon or chrome-alloy spring
steel, zone hardened and differentially heat treated. All brass guards
are braze-welded for maximum strength and durability. Wood, Micarta
and Montana Elkhorn are used for most handles. Dave personally field
tests all of his knife designs placing emphasis on balance, form and
function. These knives have proven themselves in the woods and work
places of Montana, under extreme conditions.
