A look at the Rough Rider Canoe Whittlers (Canittlers)

The way things are they smother small business's with overhead cost. I think, we should encourage small companies. They employ a few workers at first and then more if they are successful. That use to be the American dream.

I want to buy USA knives but it is hard to argue about the quality of most Rough Riders and several other knives that are made in China, Japan, Taiwan, Italy or Spain  by American several knife makers.  I also realize that most of the knife makers are not out sourcing  their manufacturing to these markets because they want to make a larger profit margin.  They are doing it to stay in business.  We blame the companies when we should be blaming our government for being so hostile to business in this country.  Most knife companies are small operations  employing maybe  hundred or so people, tops.  They are not going to be able to absorb the over regulated business climate  as easily as the Walmarts and big box stores.

And then you have the issue of quality. Rough Riders are solid well made knives.  If you get rid of the tang stamps and that "china" mark most people  would agree they are on par with Case and Buck. The blades are quite as well polished but build and quality is there.

Its really to bad, many things have gone that way. I'd rather have US made, but quality and price speak.

Im lost on the import thing... if imports are better and cost less there is no reason 

to waste our money on handcrafted USA made knives...Joe says he is replacing his case with a RR for EDC ... im just at a loss...

That's a great challenge. I carry a RR about 1/3 of the time. I like them.

Comment by Joe Jessee on March 23, 2014 at 14:56
I have 3 RRider canoes one is the lock back in red bone. I have carried each of them of and on everyday for the last year. I found them to be of better quality than most higher priced knives. They sharpen well and in my humble opinion will be my EDC's replacing a Case stockman.
