XTRUAMSMOKE: Americana Smokejumper
Ruana Americana Knives
 
This reintroduced American made design has been a proven duty and survival knife standing the test of time. Ruana Americana has these knives manufactured by TOPS Knives who are well known for excellent, American-made, tactical fixed baldes. The Ruana Smokejumper was originally created in the late 1930's and later became a favorite knife for Western Montana's brave parachuting firefighters that were first on the scene to battle forest fires in rugged and remote mountainous areas. The Smokejumpers would occasionally get hung up in a tree or have their parachute cord tangled during the jump and this compact knife would allow them to cut themselves free. The versatile Smokejumper blade shape has been tested throughout Montana, the United States, and other parts of the world. Its design is all any hunter, outdoor enthusiast, survivalist or anyone requiring an everyday quality cutting tool ever needs.

About Ruana Americana Knives:

Inspired by designs from 75 years of knife making at our small Ruana Knife Works shop in Bonner, Montana, we are proud to introduce our new line of Ruana Americana Knives. Our project and idea for this new line of knives has been in the works for the better part of the last decade, and come to fruition in December of 2012 in our joint venture with TOPS Knives of Idaho Falls, Idaho. We are grateful to work with Mike Fuller and the fine folks at TOPS to produce high quality, completely American Made knives. Ruana Americana knives are tested and backed by us and our partners at TOPS with the budget conscious knife collector and user in mind and are designed to our specs with the standards customers have come to expect from Ruana Knives.

Being firm believers in keeping the American dream alive and the importance of our country getting back to the principles and ideas that made it great, Ruana Americana knives will help support American craftsmanship, workers, jobs and businesses with an entirely American Made, value added product that is built to last and backed with a money back guarantee. Additionally, Ruana Knife Works will support Americans who have sacrificed greatly by donating a portion of the sales proceeds from the Americana line to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. This great non-profit organization is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans through fly fishing and fly tying education and outings.
