LETTERS OF AUTHENTICITY
We can document and add potential value to your old or new Ruana Knives with letters of authenticity.
Letters of Authenticity for Older Ruana Knives
Old Knife
If you have an older Ruana Knife that is being passed down as an heirloom or you are trying to sell it, a letter of authenticity will often times clear the air about your knife’s legitimacy and age while potentially adding to its value. Our letters for older knives will include your knife’s specs, offer an opinion on its legitimacy as being a Ruana Knife, and its production date as specifically as possible. We will also work with you if you would to include any certain message in your letter. We will not appraise your knife within the letter, other than offering a current replacement cost for a similar model if you wish.
Type 1: Old Knife Letter of Authenticity with Text only includes:
  • A description of your knife including its approximate date of production.
  • Our company letterhead, a signature, and embossed corporate seal.
  • One copy on plain paper.
  • Rate: $ 30 includes First Class Mail for mailing your letter. If your knife is included with the letter, shipping and insurance charges (for the value you wish to insure the knife for) will be extra.
Type 2: Old Knife Letter of Authenticity with Color Photo includes:
  • A written description of your knife including its approximate date of production.
  • Our company letterhead, a signature, and embossed corporate seal.
  • A color photo of your knife within the letter.
  • Two copies of the letter; one on plain paper and one on photo paper that is suitable for framing.
