Rough Riders!

Whether we like them or loath them, Chinese manufactured knives have found their way into collections of all sorts across the entire globe. The intent of this forum is to offer a place where AAPK members can discuss the knives and not the politics.

Thanks, Jerry.

A couple other shots, it seems like it would work.

I picked up a few new ones this past week. The whittler and stockman came as amber jigged bone and I dyed them to the red/brown color. Was gonna dye the smooth tobacco bone sowbelly trapper too but kinda like the mottled look it came with. All three are nicely made with smooth blade action and near perfect pulls.

Nice Ladies Leg knife & capable too, just show it a beer.
And super nice Sowbelly knives too. Rough Rider knives are such an incredible deal. If that smooth bone one was a Northwoods (similar bone) it would cost you 20 times as much.

It was 2007 when i bought my first RR just to see what a $8.00 knife was like. It is amazing how good the Traditional style RR knives are, regardless of price. I think if there was a performance test between Rough Rider & GEC knives, there would be little difference. The slickest whitetail field dressing i ever did was with a RR jumbo trapper.

I believe Rough Riders become more popular with every passing day.
They are certainly popular in my pocket. (And on my pocket)

I just bought a RR1810 dagger and like it. It is likely to see a tour of the streets of Tijuana from August 20th - August 26th, 2019. ::tu::

I agree about not drinking the water. But if a person goes to Tijuana then drinking water is probably just about the last thing he is likely to do. I just hope the tests come back negative!
