Honoring, our father, Vic Hangas
In 2017, we honored our dad, Vic Hangas, and his 52 plus years of making Ruana Knives with the V. N. Hangas Special knife. The prototype and first 100 of these knives were made with special engraving, numbering, a certificate, special leather for the sheath and other bells and whistles that will never be used again for this knife and sheath. We anticipated this design being popular and are offering it for sale as a non-catalog, but regular production knife.
Knife & Sheath Features:
The blade is hammer forged, flat grind 4” 1095 carbon steel blade made from 3/16” stock with a hybrid shape between the Custom Finn and Steelhead blades. It has thumb notches at the hilt and would work well for hunting, fishing, camping, anything in the outdoors or an everyday carry knife.
The 4 ½” cast aluminum handle has elk antler inserts secured with aluminum rivets and is a shop favorite of all of us in terms of comfort and functionality.
The boot style, full sheath is handmade in our shop with chestnut colored English Bridle leather.
