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'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?

Mr. Smith, how does one go about dying bone scales?  I assume it's done without removing them from the frame, correct?  Very nice job, by the way.    It appears to be a deep plum color.  Have you ever tried to "pattern-dye" the scales.  That's a term I just conjured up.... but I think you know what I mean.  Kinda' like the old hippy "tie-dying" technique only maybe something along similar train's of thought with bone.

 I'm looking for RR knives in the Battle Axe series.  Of the seven in the series, I have two, the mini-trapper with locking clip-blade and the muskrat.  If anyone can steer me toward the remaining five.... the standard Trapper, the single-blade Trapper, small Lockback, Congress and Sowbelly..... I would be eternally grateful.

Even dyed mine, Dewey.

Like J.J. Smith III, I too recently found a nice RR 323.  I was glad to see I'm not the only one who likes to "contour" the edges of the scales.  I do the same with bolsters and springs.... to some extent.... just enough to give it a "pocket-worn" feel.  The 323 is a nice knife, but I prefer the smaller stockman at 3 1/8" - 3 1/4" for EDC.  It's just a personal preference, the 323 is a beautiful knife.

So being a pipe smoker along with a knife collector, I was happy to see the new pipe tool/knife for RR.  Bought one for myself and one for a raffle in my pipe club.  Just got it but I like it so far!

Cool sunfish and holster, Ron!

Comment by Ron Gabriel on September 12, 2018 at 9:32

I started carrying my Rough Rider Sunfish while Cowboy Action Shooting. The holster shaped sheath is by Moore Maker and took a little stretching to fit the big Sunifish. Great addition to my Cowboy outfit and as a conversion starter.

Not "knives" related, but I saw this on Facebook.  Brigadier General Teddy Roosevelt Jr., during WW II.
