The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
The purpose of this discussion is to try to identify all of the Rough Riders Knives past, present and Future. I've only got around a 100 of the 1000 or more Riders out there. Most of those are currently at my Rough Rider Reviews web page. See (http://blindkat.hegewisch.net/RRR/).
Let's try and fill it in.
These are the series and handle material I know of:
A Stroke of Luck
Arrowhead (Brian Yellowhorse)
Brotherhood (Vitenam, now also Iraqi Freedom, Desert Storm, and Enduring Freedom)
Cherokee Feather Series (Original Synth Turquoise)
For The Cause (Breast Cancer)
For the Cause (Heart Disease)
Gunstock bone (checkered bone)
Heavy Hunter (mostly fixed blades)
Man Knives (Prostate Cancer)
Ocean Fire (Red Pearl)
Ocean wave (Blue Pearl)
Once in a Blue Moon
Saigon Sidekick (Fixed blade, tomahawk)
Silver Select (first series - Pearl/Abalone)
Silver Select (Second series, white bone)
Stag (first Release)
Stag (Second Release)
Toad Sticker Series (three melon testers)
Tobacco Smooth Bone (chess piece shield, not outdoorsman)
White smooth bone
Any one of others

Thanks so much for starting this discussion. I've just started collecting RR knives and the list and pictures will be really useful! I'm currently carrying two: the Armor Hide Canoe and the small Black Bone Stockman (love the filework on that one!). Next week will probably be different. ;-)
great discussion and lets see if we can come up with the rest!
The locking canoe lockbacks were whittlers
RR 1077 --Amber Jigged Bone
RR 1078 --Outdoorsman (tabacco smooth bone with acorn shield)
RR 1079 -- Yellow Composition
RR 1076 -- Red Jigged Bone
I've got most of the whitlers. Think I'm missing 2.
Bark pearl and imitation malachite are a couple I have that are not on your list
