There is a discussion within Rough Riders called:  Rough Riders and other SMKW House Brands

I think it would be interesting to have groups devoted to SMKW house Brands and a group for the Frost House Brands, especially if people were unbiased in their comments.   Not every thing Frost sucks!

Comment by Steve Hanner on Thursday

Giving some thought to a Group in Box of Blades for Colt. It is a House brand of SMKW but I and some others like to collect them and show off our collection.

I do like the look of the tortoise shell, might have to look at one or two. I think I have one the tiny peanut.

Good one Charles.  I love the RR 5 inch Toothpicks.  I just wished they made more than 5 of them.

My latest Rough Rider is an oldie but goodie.  The RR492 Canoe with tortoise shell handles.

It is part of my growing collection of Tortoise Shell.

RR 495 peanut

RR 505 Baby Toothpick

RR 492 Canoe

RR 514 Work Knife (Locking Soddy)

Marbles MR 207  5 inch Toothpick

Not sure ho many more RR Tortoise Shells I will get but I'll at least get the Reverse Gunstock and the Straight Razor.  There is also a nice Bever Creek (Frost) Trapper with a Sharps Carbine Shield) and Marbles Sleeveboard Whittler in tortoise shell that look enticing.

(And yes I know it is imitation tortoise. Many Knife Companies in America led the way in banning the use of tortoise shell for knife handles.  I think  many American Companies stopped using it before WWI.  Several other companies followed suit soon after WWI.   Other industries were much slower with many continuing to use the actual tortoise shell until the world wide ban in 1973.)

I really do like the combination of the rifle shield and that long blade!
