Ruana Knives

Let's get away from politics for a few minutes and consider some genuine American craftsmen making some seriously beautiful and useful knives (not sure what the following will look like in your browser, but clicking on the link should work):

Rada Mfg. Co. is located in Waverly, Iowa and has been manufacturing cutlery since 1948?
I bought one their bread knives.
Im impressed by price and its performance.
Reviews were pretty good as well.
Beats the heck outta those cruddy Chinese made monstrosities that wont cut through warm fresh baked bread without crushing it.

Lots in my parts still make knives.
Eskimo country Alaska.
Plenty still make the traditional style.
And they can have specific uses.
Special types for cutting fur's when making fur hats and other winter gear, fish knives, knives for seal, cutting whale, and regular kitchen use knives, and sewing,
I have made several over the years (mainly kitchen), lost a few esp when kids or wifey threw away a pizza box without checking it for a ulu.
Some folks develop carpal tunnel while standing out in the elements so like them newer star treck looking push style ulu's = less wear and tear on your hands when processing a net full of salmon for the dry rack that day.
They can be found in right / left hand models with a single bevel or a double bevel cutting edge options.
And layout as to the particular angle you cut with (handle geomitry to cutting edge)
A poor fitting knife can make a tough job a misrable experence.
Or a big job enjoyable. 😄
