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

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.

Wish I had known you were there Tobias, I would have made the 3 hour drive to see you there!  Nice knives you picked up though!

Nice one, Tobias. I really like the scales on that one.

the backside showing the blue pocket clip. the blade is also stone washed blue.  440a stainless steel blade and G10 handle. . i’ve been using it for the last week. its a super cutter. the blade is staying tight and is holding its edge and blue color. It also feels good in the hand.

picked up the Rough Rider Hatchet Linerlock last weekend at Smoky Mountain Knife Works. (and a half dozen other knives!)

its a pretty slick little knife. not too shabby for $13.

Ron, there area lot of nice RR if you go back on the threads. Wow, I didn't realize it had been this long since someone posted on here. I may have to dig out some pictures to post. It has been a while since I have bought a RR, but I have plenty.
