My take on the RR850 Mountain Man Bowie

Started by Tobias Gibson Nov 13. 0 Replies

The knife is about what I expected for the $20 asking price.  What you get is a Bowie knife with an overall length of 13 inches and an 8 inch clip point blade.  The style is very much like that of a…Continue

One of my favorite Rough Rider's is the RR-078.  A small lock-back that looks similar to the Moki-Meek.  Here's why:

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.
