  • Size: Length overall: 8.125" (20.6cm), Blade Length:4.25" (10.8cm), Thickness: .1875" (.48cm)

  • Handle: Polished Geodic Agate
  • Sheath: Black Stingray Skin Inlaid in Hand-Tooled 9-10 oz. Leather Shoulder
  • Knife: The Ruidoso is named for a beautiful little town in the southeast mountains of New Mexico. The design is one of my most popular, as it is a comfortable, elegant, and sleek, a true gentleman's knife. The ATS-34 makes this a tough as well as beautiful knife, perfect for carry or your collection. It features a fully tapered tang, with full filework from spine to choil. The bolsters are super-tough and corrosion resistant 304 Stainless Steel, with 25% chromium and 8% nickel. Few engrave 304 stainless, as it is so tough and hard, but these are elegantly engraved with a brigh flourish pattern. The handle material is a hard polished agate, the center of a small geode, and features bands of white, cream, and tan, and is luscious to hold and will well outlast the knife! The glassy smooth agate scales are bookmatched.
  • Sheath: The sheath has five inlays of black stingray skin in hand-carved 9-10 oz. leather shoulder, lacquered and polished and stitched with tough black nylon.
