"There is no wrong way to group them.  At knife shows most of the collectors displays will be single brand and frequently single pattern or single handle material of that single brand.  I only have a small number of my knifes out on…"

"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. "

"I say, display them the way that makes you smile. I used to have some of them in a large display case in our living room, now we have a TV hanging in that spot. The knives are all in boxes. I may display mine again someday. "

"I've got a bunch of Rough Riders/Ryder's, and have always felt that they were good quality knives.  Great to use and didn't break the bank.  My only complaint has been the reduction in steel in the blades, which I've…"

"I agree with what others here are saying -- arrange them in whatever way works best for you.  Whatever you like best.  It's fine if you really want a very specific order, and it's fine if you prefer something really subjective…"

"I have to agree on he RR's!  My first RR was actually a prize from iKC, & I was quite impressed, so I've picked up a couple more since then.  The prospect of spending $50 on a Rough Rider is a bit odd, but I really like the…"

"However you like it I guess. Theres no right or wrong way in my opinion. I bought some wooden Tea boxes, painted them dark on the outside but left them as is in the inside. Then added some pins, dog tags ect. Grips are empty 45 shell cases. And I…"

"I have 3 or 4 RR & I find them pretty nice. However, I also have 4 or 5 (Made in China) Robi Klaas Kissing Crane knives and I love them! Same price range as the normal RR knives but I find them even nicer than RR. If you haven't had one…"

"You are so right. For the price point a RR makes a good knife. They have a good assortment, various handles so something for everyone "

"I have a few RR's in my collection, as well as a few others. I don't think I have 30 or more brands/makers though. :) Pretty darned good for a "beginner"!"
