    I am currious bout thoughts on RUKO KNIFES ...anyone else have one and using it....I got a non folding rukko from our local farm store fer bout 25 bucks and I have a very hard time keeping a user knife...if I dont like it it will end up in my knife drawer or????..
    this particular one I have has realey impressed me I have been cutting wire - to fish and it has held very well as a decent user knife..It started to get dull and I ran a still over it and the nicks and blade was back to way good with little or no effort ...I thought I would pass this on because a good knife is sometimes hard to come by...been a very long time since I have found a knife that is of this stature and price range ...I am gonna go get a couple more there knifes comming up and test them ....would like to hear what any of you think ...I am way hard on tools/knifes so qualitey is hard pressed less ya spend a fortune!

    Can't say I've heard of that brand either, but I have to agree about a couple of good knives for fishing.

    My main knife was handed down to me from my grandfather. It is a plain, bloodstained, carbon-steel fixed blade knife in the original leather sheath--his fishing knife for about seventy of his ninety years. There are a whole lot of knives out there with new-fangled laser-sharpened edges and so forth, but nothing cuts as well as this ol' knife in my opinion. I can sharpen it in a few minutes until it can provide a decent shave and haircut.

    Besides, I feel an electric-like, heritage shock run up my arm every time I use it. :wink:

    I just looked at their site. They seem to make nice looking knifes, they claim to have since 1956. They also say that they have 2,500+ different models. Not many companies offer 512 layer damascus for under $500.

    My personal favorite knife is a Russell Green River "Dadley" knife made from 1095 carbon steel. SUPER Sharp (razor), holds an edge extremely well, and sharpens up real easy.
