The Roman historian Livy reported that the razor was introduced in ancient Rome in the 6th century BC. Priscus was ahead of his time because razors did not come to general use until a century later.
Vic Hangas, Ruana’s son-in-law and eventual next door neighbor, began making Ruana Knives side by side with Rudy in 1964 and did so for 20 years until Rudy’s retirement in 1984.
Mark Hangas, Vic’s son, began putting his skills to work along his dad and grandfather in 1976.
While there have been a few minor changes over the years, Ruana Knives are still hand crafted with the same methods and much of the original equipment Rudy used.
Many knife models have remained in place as long as the company has and the Hangas trio has carried on Rudy’s work ethic and emphasis on uncompromising quality over quantity.
Ruana Knives are proudly American Made as much as a product possibly could be, with a continued commitment to creating a functional product that is usable, durable, and increasingly collectible.
