I own about 6 RR knives now, varying patterns, and I"m just amazed by the quality for the price.  Have any of you had any quality issues?Continue

Charles, yes the hight model numbers do indeed mean newer knives.  For instance the slow burn series is in the 1430s or so.  I think the 14 stands for 2014 but I'm not sure.

Tobias, does a higher model number indicate a newer RR knife?

Also am I the only one who can't search on SMKW's web site?

Tobias,

not a great deal of anything in the "new" category for RR.  I like the Cotton sampler and intend to get one, I am waiting to see if other handle options are going to happen

Comment by Tobias Gibson on September 18, 2015 at 10:35

Has anyone seen anything new coming from Rough Rider.   The last I saw was the cotton sampler below.  Any new handle material or new patterns?  Any new fixed blade offerings?

Comment by Tobias Gibson on June 28, 2015 at 7:14

My latest Rough Rider is their new Cotton Sampler in the Appaloosa Brown Bone  It's  a hefty knife.  I'm pretty happy with it.  I hope they make it in a White Smooth Bone, and a few other handle materials.   I also wish they'd offer that fish-knife in a few more options.   It seems like SMKW doesn't pay much attention to Rough Rider Collectors anymore.  They're concentrating more on Colts.  (Sigh!)

The new shield. Tey are reissuing older knives with this one but offering very few new patterns or handle material.

Enough complaining!  Here's the knife.  It's pretty durn cool!

I should also mention the glow in the dark handles do not photograph well.  Or at least with my crappy camera they don't!

Comment by Tobias Gibson on March 9, 2015 at 21:38

I'm a sucker for glow in the dark stuff.  The liner lock was initially added to Case sodbuster sometime back but they discontinued the locking Sodbuster and have no plan on reissuing them.  The folks at SMKW took the Case model and released their work knives based on the Case.  They offer the locking work knives in the same sizes as the standard and junior Case sodbusters.   Here i smy tortoise shell locking work knife.  But you'll find the full size one in tortoise more appealing, Jan!

LOL, well it's not going to kill you if you live anywhere else so we are safe Tobias

I like the liner lock idea but the handles are not doing anything for me
