Rough Rider Gunstock Knife Review

Postby TripleF » Wed Apr 26, 2017 8:55 pm

Amazing what a phenomenal knife this is......and for the money, oh it's just hard hard to believe.
My wife gave this to me for Christmas 2016.

F&F - Amazing. Clean. Crisp. Tight. Perfect.
Walk & Talk - WICKED half stop....be very careful......great snap.
Sharpness - Not amazing, like hair cutting sharp, but truly SHARP straight out of the box!
Sharpening - Used a sharpening steel to hone the edges. Easy peasy.
Price - $15.00, shipped.
Functionality - A workhorse of a knife. And keeps on cutting.

I finished the review today by whittling this small branch in half and then creating a point, with a rope hook on opposite
end to finalize as a tent/tarp stake.

Mel, your request has been ringing in my head.....lots of pics!

Good review, Scott. Those are nice photos of that Rough Rider. Just looking at those photos makes me want to order one of those Gunstocks! It has been a while since I bought a Rough Rider ...

You didn't get chintzy on the pictures Scott. Good review.

Great post Scott ! I have loved Rough Riders since i bought my first one in 2007. They were even cheaper back then, rarely over $10.
By 2012 i had about 200 of them and even now i still pick up the newest ones that really speak to me. What i find surprising is that i get as much enjoyment out of looking at & playing with my RR knives as i do from my much more expensive and valuable vintage knives.
