The Ruana Smokejumper design was originally created in the late 1930’s, but later became a favorite knife for Western Montana’s brave parachuting firefighters. 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 the world. Its design is all any hunter, outdoor enthusiast, survivalist or anyone requiring an everyday quality cutting tool ever needs.
