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.

Here is another one: RR Large Toenail, retail price under $20, being auctioned, 26 hours to go and at $81 now.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/ROUGH-RIDER-KN ... 1438.l2649

I have about 200 RR knives but i did not keep all the boxes. They are very good knives and still widely available from retailers so i never thought i could sell them, let alone make a 500% profit on some of them.
I do not understand !

It is completely crazy. I have read comments on a couple of threads on this forum to the effect that China knives were not worth collecting, or even buying, because they would never ever be worth more than what was paid new, and probably not that. I have not bought a new Rough Rider for a year or two, I guess I need to get busy!

It might be because of the ACORN SHIELD.
Both knives that sold for a high price had the ACORN SHIELD.
