In the summer of 1898, Teddy Roosevelt began to organize the 1st U.S. Volunteer Cavalry for what seemed to be an inevitable and difficult battle with the Spanish. Over 23,000 men volunteered to ride with Roosevelt, but he whittled that number down to 2,000 handpicked cavalrymen. The men hailed from every corner of the United Sates. They were Princeton football players, full-blooded Pawnee Indians, trail-wise cowboys, aristocratic Englishmen, polo players, and even Rhodes Scholars. They came from every state and social class the United States had to offer. Roosevelt's quintessential choice was equal parts cowboy and soldier. He was a man who could ride out and defeat the Spanish every day of the week. He was the best of the best. These men, who defeated the Spanish at the grueling battle of San Juan Hill later that summer, became known as Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders. The Rough Rider brand honors the tradition of Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders by choosing the very best knife patterns and materials from around the world and building the perfect line of personal cutlery. From the classic Mother of Pearl Stockman with 440 Stainless Steel blades to the long, sleek lines of a Tactical Linerlock, Rough Rider offers the finest craftsmanship and the best cutlery, and like the Rough Riders, these knives are always ready every day of the week.


The Rough Rider Canoe is 6.1in overall in length and has two handle materials to choose from, Jigged Bone (Brown) or White Bone.

    standard

    Posted by Jon on 26th Mar 2020

    I'd say this knife hits the middle ground between a good and bad knife. It is very sharp and keeps an edge reasonably well but my knife did have a bit of side to side play and the main blade always got caught on the smaller pen blade when closing. Other than this though a great cheap EDC option.

    Brilliant knives!

    Posted by Michael on 24th Sep 2019

    I dont buy my knives from Heinnie because i live in Australia, but i couldnt resist the chance to add my two cents' worth about RR knives....they are always a pleasure to unwrap because they are so well built and beautifully finished. A real pleasure to own and use!
    My only concern is that they are such good value that traditional American makers like Case (and your own Sheffield makers) are perhaps going to lose some business (so I make a point of buying lots from them as well!!!).

    Not Good Enough

    Posted by DS on 17th Jun 2019

    I ordered one in white bone. It came with one of the scales 'chewed away' in the corner adjacent to the bolster. This despite my specifically requesting HH to check for this kind of defect when I ordered. Returned for refund but I'm not pleased. This is evidence that at least two people, one at RR quality control and one at HH, either can't be bothered to check or believe that this kind of defect is OK as far as the customer is concerned. I know this isn't an expensive knife, but this shouldn't be regarded as acceptable at any price. It's a shame because apart from this, the knife was fine, and the two other RR knives which HH have supplied me have been quite satisfactory.
    What online knife sellers in the UK need to appreciate is that just because we have a dearth of retailers where we can examine a knife before we buy it, that doesn't mean it's OK to try it on by passing substandard examples to the mail-order customer, however good your returns policy may be.

    Disappointed

    Posted by Florin C. on 17th Apr 2019

    A horrible knife for every day use. The back spring is loose. The tension is so weak that while I'm cutting into an apple, if I pull back the knife, the blade folds to close position.
    It was a waste of my money and time to manufacture it.
    Also a thicker stock for the main blade would be better,

    I gave it 2 stars because of the wonderful customer support @Heinnie and for the acceptable fit and finish + beautiful blade shape. It came very sharp from the factory ... but I can't say anything about the persistence of the apex.

    I own a RR Canoe Tabacco and a Copperhead.... which both have acceptable spring tension (I would say medium compared with my VictorInox Pioneer), but on this Canoe is weakest.

    Going for 20+Euro RR or perhaps a Canoe Buck would have been a better idea.
    I knew that RR suffers from bad quality control, I was expecting low quality on fit and finish... not on a basic functionality.

    Probably my last RR.

    White bone Canoe review

    Posted by Stevo on 27th Oct 2018

    With their Smooth White Bone series, Rough Rider have reached a level of quality that only a few years ago would have been considered unthinkable for a pocket knife made in China. The brand has from its inception represented surprisingly good quality and value for money.

    While it is true that a faulty or lacklustre pocket knife can be produced by any manufacturer, it has been my personal experience that the quality and consistency of Rough Rider models has been as good as any other make, and invariably at a fraction of the price of a comparable example.

    The Smooth White Bone series, if anything, only improves on the quality. Comparing the one recently ordered from Heinnie's to an earlier Brown Jigged Bone RR, the spring tension is improved, especially noticeable on the main spear blade, the polish on both blades is to a higher level, the action is smoother, and the bolsters have a nicer finish.

    Adding to the old fashioned charm of the very popular Canoe pattern, the white bone scales have some small mottled areas of light brown, with a few dark flecks here and there. This variance is actually an attractive feature. At first glance, this classic pocket knife could easily be mistaken for an heirloom passed down through generations.

    In terms of performance, the time tested design is comfortable and ergonomic in use and carry. The 440A steel sharpens easily, responds quickly to stropping, and offers excellent corrosion resistance. The size of blades are ideal for day to day tasks that one would normally expect of their pocket knife.

    For someone coping with arthritis, the Canoe pattern is a sensible choice, for a traditional slipjoint; easier to operate and maintain, in my opinion, than many other patterns where the blades may be smaller or more difficult to open due to strong backsprings.

    The Canoe pattern is UK friendly, and very easy on one's pockets, with smooth contouring and minimal thickness. The weight is a nice blend of comfort and reassuringly hefty presence. Ideal for picnic duties or an apple when one fancies a quick snack. The comfortable handle design makes for a good whittler, too.

    Overall, this white bone Canoe is one of my favourites from Rough Rider. It looks classy enough to suit fancy or formal occasions, and has the inherent dependable quality to serve any daily tasks within its capabilities. Very well recommended!

    Service from HH was superb, as ever!

    Superb knife

    Posted by Lee on 12th Jan 2018

    I needed a new knife to replace a SAK that had too many bells & whistles.
    I chose the white bone version of the Rough Rider Canoe (RRC) & I think it looks very stylish.
    Expecting it would need sharpening, as lots of knives do when you get them, I prepared my sharpening kit but surprisingly didn't need it; both blades were razor sharp & didn't need any work.
    The RRC was bigger than I expected but sits comfortably in the hand & I know will last me a long time.

    With regards to Heinne & their delivery .....what can I say? I ordered the RRC at about 15:30hrs on the 30th November & it arrived at 09:50hrs on the 1st December & I'd only chosen the normal delivery option (cheapest of course).

    So much potential

    Posted by Stephen on 12th Jan 2018

    This knife is a lovely size, feels really nice when you pick it up and has a smooth clean action. It wasn't sharp out of the box but then for the price... The pocket feel is excellent. But the blades bear no resemblance to the pictures. Both blades have what I can only describe as cocked eyebrows over the nail pick - in other words they have been poorly finished. They rise to a dull point over the nail pick and there is effectively no tip to the big blade. Unlike the Canoe Carbon there is no light between the scales and the spring but the blades look like seconds. It is sad I want very much to like this brand but the quality of finish needs serious attention. Once again two stars for the excellent potential.
