Rough Rider patterns

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.

I agree Phil - I already have plenty of knives with the blades worn down to half a nub... :lol:

I have to agree that it looks funky but if your wanting to make a pile of shaving it is about just right. But it is purpose driven in design.

I have one of these large 2 blade RR's said to be for whittling. This pattern first came out about 7-8 years ago and is a very well made knife. Have any whittlers 'out there' tried it out ?

Nev52, that one looks like it will be a good user! I like the belly on the spay blade and of course the good point on the clip is always necessary in my way of thinking. My limited experience with RR was really an eye opener. An anonymous donor sent me a RR Trapper and right out the box I was able to completely dress a deer without having to touch up the edges of the blades. It was as sharp as any new knife I'd ever handled. In fact if I recall most of the work was done with just the clip blade.
Except for the where the RRs are made, they seem to be good knives! Just being honest about liking a knife that says Made in USA. ::dead_horse::
Yes sir, that one will probably do the job! ::tu::

Thanks' Treefarmer,
I like USA made knives. But I have to say these Rough Riders are a lot of knife for the money.

They seem to have the gift of picking nice desirable patterns and executing them well. The Half Hawk has caught my eye. Why Case stopped making the Loom Fixer is beyond me. Ed

Thanks! I use to use facebook groups but there all ....um lets say "Butts" about a "girl" being into knife collecting. I only recently started looking up some knives when trying to decide what to keep and what to let go for a downsize otherwise I probably buy more than I should and probably some I should leave in the bargain bin , lol.
