Many of the Rough Rider patterns I own are similar to some of the Case patterns I own. When comparing the quality, fit and finish these knives are a great value. What really makes them great is I…Continue

Hello, new member, I have gathered a bunch of RRs and put together nearly every known toothpick scale, bolster and shield combo in multiples. Is it acceptable to buy, sell or trade on this site?

I just received all three of the RR knives from the Tiger Stripe collection (RR 2218, 2221, 2222). They look and function great Just cant beat RR for the price.

Anyone else have the RR1838 "Hopalong Cassidy" moose, or one of the other "Riders of the Silver Screen" series moose?

The mailman dropped off a very nice 3 1/2" RR #737 jigged brown Gunstock Jack Knife today.  I really like the scales.  A nice, tight knife.... NIB.

Dewey,  I used the method that I found over on BF.


Figured it couldn't hurt.  It was a matter of preference...I don't like red scales, so anything had to be an improvement.  I'm pleased with the results.  The combination of the brown dye on the red scales gave them some depth and warmness.

As for a list of All RR knives. I have a list of the first four years of production somewhere.   But RR just celebrated 25 years of knife production.  It would be hard to come up with a list of series let alone knives in each series and the year introduced. This becomes even more problematic at RR is now producing series that once were under the Colt Brand.   

Not to mention, RR also made several “one off” knives that never made it in a series, as well as numerous fixed blades and modern folders.  And then there is the Red Ryder conundrum.  Sometimes SMKW lumps them in the RoughRyder line and other times they don’t!
