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

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!

So anybody get a new Rough Rider?

And thus concludes today's geological lesson!  My goodness, well synthetic sure helps explain the price differential!

Comment by Steve Hanner on July 22, 2014 at 11:54

Blade Etch though for sure would be unique.  I find this funny... Ralph operates out of his basement and has stock on some of these knives so keep him in mind for a hard to find or discontinued or just plain out of stock.

Oh yeah.  There ain't no such thing as red turquoise.  The red stone is synthetic bloody basin jasper which is a red jasper with spider vein of black, brown, or green.  (Not to be confused with Bloody Jasper which is a green jasper with red veins.)  The yellow stone in the Stoneworx line is yellow jasper.  These stones are often called red and yellow turquoise but the stones are NOT turquoise. 

Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrous phosphate of copper and aluminium.

Jasper, a form of chalcedony, is an opaque, impure variety of silica, usually red, yellow, brown or green in color; and rarely blue.

Well I did see a difference in the stone layout but was not sure if they produced them all identical?

Comment by Tobias Gibson on July 22, 2014 at 11:42

That Stoneworx looks a tad different than the ones I've seen.  I only have one of the Stockmans(RR914).  The other ones are RR913 and RR915.  Does this one have a pattern number.  The stone layout is different than the other Stoneworx Stockmans and I've never seen that blade etch.  Pretty cool looking stockman.
