I have one of the Rough Rider Heavy Series, the Sidewinder.  Yesterday while out in my hunting area, I decided to see if I could chop down a tree with it.  I picked one about three inches in…Continue

New to collecting/ using. Have read some good reviews if both. Is either brand superior to the other, or are they pretty much the same. How to they compare with other SMKW and Frost lines?Continue

Rough Rider 980 Tortoise Shell Tiny Toothpick

Comment by Steve Hanner on August 4, 2014 at 21:06

I do like the look of the tortoise shell, might have to look at one or two. I think I have one the tiny peanut.

Nice looking Canoe Tobias

Good one Charles.  I love the RR 5 inch Toothpicks.  I just wished they made more than 5 of them.

My latest Rough Rider is an oldie but goodie.  The RR492 Canoe with tortoise shell handles.

It is part of my growing collection of Tortoise Shell.

RR 495 peanut

RR 505 Baby Toothpick

RR 492 Canoe

RR 514 Work Knife (Locking Soddy)

Marbles MR 207  5 inch Toothpick

Not sure ho many more RR Tortoise Shells I will get but I'll at least get the Reverse Gunstock and the Straight Razor.  There is also a nice Bever Creek (Frost) Trapper with a Sharps Carbine Shield) and Marbles Sleeveboard Whittler in tortoise shell that look enticing.

(And yes I know it is imitation tortoise. Many Knife Companies in America led the way in banning the use of tortoise shell for knife handles.  I think  many American Companies stopped using it before WWI.  Several other companies followed suit soon after WWI.   Other industries were much slower with many continuing to use the actual tortoise shell until the world wide ban in 1973.)

I really do like the combination of the rifle shield and that long blade!

Nice one Charles

I got this RR711 Rifleman Series Large Toothpick today.

So anybody get a new Rough Rider?

Comment by Steve Hanner on July 22, 2014 at 11:58

And thus concludes today's geological lesson!  My goodness, well synthetic sure helps explain the price differential!

Comment by Steve Hanner on July 22, 2014 at 11:54

Blade Etch though for sure would be unique.  I find this funny... Ralph operates out of his basement and has stock on some of these knives so keep him in mind for a hard to find or discontinued or just plain out of stock.
