  • My Rough Rider Whittlers

    I bought these on Ebay and ended up paying less than $10 for both of them. I then ground the large spear point blade down to almost a warn cliff style. After that, I gave all three blades a flat ground to a razor sharpness. They both preform beautifully. The only bad part is that they aren't lock back, but I'm careful.

      I ended up with 5 pocket knives for just under $20. The other three knives haven't been worked on yet.

      I also picked up 6 of those United Cutlery Whittling Jacks for BudK for $12 plus shipping. I only have one of them sharpened up.

        Hi Ed,

        Great deal. I've been looking for an older model Rough Rider but no luck so far.

          Yeah, these are made in China, but they have 440 stainless blades. I hope you find the knife you're looking for. You never know what might pop up on Ebay.

            Bladematrix has Rough Riders at great prices. In fact, most of their knives are priced better than most places on the net. Good dealer too. I've ordered from them many times and never had a problem. They have a brick and mortar store as well and I've had quite a few friends who have shopped there.

              Thanks for the heads up, Terry. I'll have to check them out. As if I don't have enough pocket knives already.

                  Thanks, Tony. I prefer the Wharncliffe (thanks for the correct spelling) blade as well. I left a bit of up sweep in the tip on these and I like it. Now I have something to carry around with me.

                    Good buy on the Rough Riders.
                    I contacted SMKW last year with the suggestion that they put a wharncliffe blade on the sleveboard whittlers. Great choice.
