Welcome Home

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/).

Okay, it apeears that Rough Rider has released  some new stoneworx knives now with a  blade etch and new stone configuration

Tiny Toothpick - RR1420

3 inch Leg knife - RR1417

3 7/8 in stockman - RR1419

Standard Trapper - RR1418

If I'm correct the numbering means 14- year 2014, and knives 18-20 for this year.  I'm not sure what box they will show up in.  but that brings the number up to 19 in different knives in the Stoneworx line.

Now if they would only re-release the large toothpick in new stones and maybe add the camp knife to the stoneworx line!

There are five knives in the Moonshiner Series (I have two)  I believe the series was only issued twice, with the first run being 1,250.  These had a lighter color corncob jig handle.  The second time around the corncob was darker.  Both releases featured the knife coming in a wooden barrel with etching and a small two ounce flask.  The barrel came in a plain white box.

I have a first release Sowbelly and second Release Canoe.

Number for all five Moonshiner knives:

Muskrat - RR867

Sowbelly -  RR871

Congress -  RR868

Trapper - RR870

Canoe -   RR869

Now if Rough Rider would add their camp knife to the line!

This is a list of the the Rough Rider Fixed Blades that I know of.  I know there is also at least one more but I can't find the info.  How do i know there is at least one more.  Because it was one I was thinking about buying.  It was a wide bellied skinner with a kraton like black handle.

The Colt G-10 handled carbon steel knives have been moved over to Rough Rider.
The earliest of these have an interesting factory "defect" that was not caught by QC.
The tang stamp claims stainless steel.

According to SMKW these were the first carbon steel Rough Rider knives made at that particular factory, and the wrong tang stamp was used. They ARE carbon steel, but have the stainless tang stamp. The correct tang stamp is being used now.
