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

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.

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.

https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/dyeing-bone-a-tutorial.868446/

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!

Comment by Tobias Gibson on June 20, 2019 at 8:42

As the series lacked a large toothpick or scout knife it was ignored by me.  LOL.

That said:

The series was primarily 3 different styles of trappers:

Standard trapper

Slimline trapperlock with a disc style thumb stud for left/right opening 

Mini Trapper w/ locking clip blade

Then four other knives

Small lockback

Congress, 

Muskrat

Sowbelly

So seven in the series. They didn’t even bother with a canoe.  I almost bought the Sowbelly but the lack of my favorites left me cold.

SMKW may be the best place to look for the battle axe series. RR is their house brand. You might ask Tobias Gibson about a list. He would be the one that comes to mind that might have some type of RR listing. 

I only bought a trapper in that series.

Comment by Dewey treat on June 19, 2019 at 16:13

I'm looking for a list of all RR knives, from day ONE to the present including patterns in a particular series, RR# and other such info.   Is there such a list, and if so, where can I obtain a copy? 

Thanks,

Dewey
