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

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!

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.

Found me a NOS RR323.  I wish that it was a squared bolster knife, but I'm liking it.  Way better blades than the current production knives.

Already have the edges of that scales contoured, so it feels right.  Next on the agenda is to attempt to re-dye the scales.  I'm thinking that a brown dye would look good, keeping some of the red undertones.

Yes they do.

Appears that I have upset someone affiliated with Rough Rider, with my comments about the thinness of the blades in the Large Stockman.

Someone responded to my comments saying that all traditional patterns have 1/16" blades.

Well, I've been known to be mistaken, once or twice, so I decided that I'd compare the 603 to a Little Barlow (RR901).  As both are in the Yellow Comp series, I figured that it should be close.

Compared the pin blade on the 901 to the spey, sheepsfoot, as well as the clip master blade.

Photos speak for themselves.
