    I locate you on the site and I'm looking for a expert like
    yourself to give me some information on an old knife that I have had
    for over 30 years. I made a web site to make it easier to view the
    pictures. Your help would be greatly appreciated. www.bowie.s5.com

    This is a bowie-style hunting knife made in Solingen, Germany, in the 1950s or 1960s. The marking out on the blade (Original Bowie Knife) was widely used during that time period, on hunting knives made in Germany for export to the U.S.

    I suspect (but I am not certain) that this "Buffalo Brand" drawn to look like a buffalo belonged to the Missoula Mercantile Co of Montana, and was last used in 1972. This firm would have imported and sold the knife.

    Where do you find the word RUKO?

    For additional information, please visit my Knife questions page.
    Be advised that this knife is not worth much more than my appraisal fee.

    At my web site on the picture page you can see that one of the pictures has two letters "KO" stamped on the blade. I also did alittle search and found out that Ruko did make a Buffalo Brand Bowie Knife. That the Buffalo Brand stamp is to signify that the knife was made in Buffalo, New York. I can't say for sure that its a Ruko. I did get ahold of the Ruko Company and they will be in touch as soon as they identify the knife. But you may also be right because below the "KO" there is some letters "INGEN" to make up the word Solingen.
    I will paste the information I get back from Ruko. Back soon.
