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.

Great looking knife!

I'm not sure how many people are aware of it but Moose is actually a fairly old pattern knife. It is said the pattern was developed by George Washington Sears - better known as Nessmuk. In its earlier days the knife was known as the the Nessmuk folder.

Nice one, Tobias. I like some of the new handles material that RR has come out with. I like the Moose pattern almost as well as Trappers.
