    Rough Rider set of 3

    Posted by Craig Pickersgill on 19th May 2021

    These are actually throwing knives, there is a youtube page which shows the knives being used. I bought a set and did some alterations to the larger one and now have a usable knife.

    Rough Rider blade blanks set

    Posted by Rich on 6th Dec 2020

    I bought these to practice on and for that you can't go wrong for the price. Surprisingly light weight but then, I don't think these are intended for hard use! The largest size blade is too big and bulky to be useful anyway but it will make an impressive finished knife. The two smaller ones are more useful sizes. The tangs on all three will need grinding to remove the stupid point that sticks out exactly where your middle finger wraps around the tang. They feel too light to stand up to everyday use but good for the price as it gives you three blanks to practice your skills on.

    Great way to start

    Posted by Gareth on 8th Jul 2020

    As other people have said, this is not the greatest steel ... but you get three blades for under £14, and they will take an decent edge. Great way to start, as you’re not going to feel bad about messing up on the grind on a £4.65 blade. Well worth it! Will be buying another set.

    My first blank blades - Perfect for beginners

    Posted by A J Smith on 28th Oct 2019

    These were the first blanks I ever bought (Thank you Hennie Haynes) and I think they're great. I did get a little over zealous with the grinder on the smallest one and turned it into something that looked like a prison shank but I was able to learn a lot about what to do and what not to do for a great price. I think these are perfect for beginners and am happy to have the finished products on my wall.

    Update

    Posted by 243 on 2nd Nov 2018

    I've upgraded my opinion of these blades since my April review of the smallest. I've now got a set of 3 excellent kitchen knives which rival any we've owned over the last 40 years. I've enjoyed every minute of the learning process & have made a matched set of knives using salvaged English, American & European Oak with pins & lanyard pins made from aluminium, brass , copper, SS & even wooden dowels with pins through the centre. Cutting, shaping & fitting the scales was great fun & I even put blue plastic liners on the mid-sized blade with filework along the spine. I also made a knifeblock by gluing together various offcuts of scrap wood. This learning project turned out so well that I've just bought another set of these. It IS possible to put a good edge on these by doing a slow. Careful freehand grind on a belt sander. The only drawback to these blades is they don't hold a good edge for very long but that is true of most knife sets under £50. To get a 3 knife set as unusual looking as these would set you back hundreds of pounds & I can't recommend these highly enough at only £12 for the 3. Even with the other materials required plus electricity this set cost under £35. Several people have seen them & been fascinated by their appearance & the fact that they are uniique. Apologies for the verbosity but I really am over the Moon with these blades - try some yourself & see!

    Worth a go!

    Posted by 243 on 26th Apr 2018

    I got these because I am new to knifemaking as a potential hobby for when I retire next year. i've seen them criticised for poor steel, edge quality & finish but at £11 for 3 I don't think you can go wrong if you want to practise without wasting cash. I'm making my own Micarta for scales & have also found that a piece of microbore flexible copper pipe is a perfect fit for the smallest blade, being 8mm diameter & 6mm bore. Using this I've made a lanyard pin, a mosaic pin with various sizes of electric cable & another mosaic pin with 6mm brass through the center. I've altered the shape of the handle with a bit of subtle grinding & am so far very pleased with my progress. I look forward to moving onto the bigger blades soon. These blanks are perfect to learn with. Thanks HH for good service & value!

    Cheap and cheerful

    Posted by MikeB on 26th Sep 2017

    Great deal if you want to practice making a knife or just want to make a set for occasional use. The steel isn't great and the pin holes are way too large, but for what you are paying it's great value. Pictures of completed knives here http://lumberjocks.com/projects/338753
