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.

    Cheap, but even so not what I expected

    Posted by Mothy on 10th Sep 2021

    Having watched some very positive reviews of various Rough Rider knives on YouTube, I have to say I was initially a little disappointed in this one, as there are several problems with it. The item description says "amber jigged bone", but the knife I received is a dirty yellow rather than the more orange colour pictured. It's not a bad colour, but it's not what I expected. The knife has a pen blade where I expected a coping blade, but on closer inspection I think the pen blade is cropped in the photo so it looks a bit like a coping blade. The pen blade also has a slight vertical indentation, as if the metal was perhaps rolled out with uneven pressure. The small clip point blade is very difficult to open, as the notch is too close to the joint. With some lubrication and a lot of playing, it has improved a little, but I can't see it ever being easy to open. The points of the two smaller blades both rest slightly proud of the handle when closed, so may catch on things in your pocket, and it's even possible to cut yourself on them when the main blade is open. Blade alignment isn't very good; the pen blade touches and rubs against the main blade, so the highly polished finish won't last. The blades are sharp out of the box and seems to be holding the edge well, so it will likely do a good job of whittling. I think this is an older model and I gather from YouTube reviews that Rough Rider have improved quality in more recent knives, so it won't put me off trying others. I bought the classic carbon II Wharncliff knife in the same order, and I think that is of much higher quality. Despite all the problems, this is still a nice little knife for the price. I even think it's growing on me as the problems give it a bit of character and a handmade feel, so won't be sending it back.

    Great little knife

    Posted by Martinez on 23rd Aug 2021

    Really impressed with this blade considering the price. Main blade is really well crafted, but a little disappointed that the second blade is really difficult to prise away from the handle, can't gain enough purchase. Apart from that its a great size, great weight, looks smart

    Lovely whittler!

    Posted by Wildy on 11th Aug 2021

    This is a great little knife that takes a great edge... a whittling sharp edge that hasn't needed touching up yet. It was edc sharp out of the box with nice even bevels , to get it whittling sharp didn't take long at all. All 3 Rough Ryder whittlers I have bought have been the same good quality fit and finish and edc sharp ,if you're after a traditional whittler theyre great knives for small whittling projects on the go and much more comfortable to whittle with than their carbon ii whittler with the fancy uncomfortable thumb splitter swedges!?.... and it's cheaper. Great service from HH as always.

    Excellent for the money.

    Posted by RD on 16th Feb 2021

    I bought this because I've been unable to find a split-back whittler anywhere else. I wasn't expecting this level of quality, it far surpassed my expectations. Fit and finish is extremely good - not perfect but I've bought knives 5x the price that are no better. The only minor issue is the 2nd clip point should really be a coping blade, but I'm not complaining for the price. Overall it's a lovely little knife in a pattern you don't often see.

    Impressed

    Posted by Richard likes pocket knives on 13th Jun 2020

    This is my first experience of a split-back-spring knife. It's clearly a feat of engineering to sort that out. Overall, for the money this is a brilliant knife. Thick, strong main blade. Sharp. Well finished considering the acknowledged difficulty of this pattern. For some reason it doesn't quite float my boat as much as my previous Rough Riders (especially the white bone Barlow which is gorgeous). Maybe just pattern preference. Worth the money certainly. Heinne Haynes service excellent again.

    Stunning

    Posted by Bam on 6th Sep 2017

    Not a bad word to say against this knife Fit and finish is excellent, no gaps anywhere and a beautiful colour on the scales No blade rub which is unusual for a three blade knife Has the split back, a spring for each of the two smaller blades tapering down to were the main blade uses both springs, very nicely done Absolutely stunning, have seen knives five times the cost that aren't finished as well Really, really pleased with this one, an absolute stunner Usual fantastic service from Richard and the guys at Heinnie

    Good for wood carving or EDC

    Posted by Stevo on 1st Jul 2017

    Very good value for money. Sharp and easy to keep an edge. Nice inexpensive carving knife, UK friendly and well made. Performance is excellent on most woods as long as material is not really hard, like hard maple, for instance. Classic proven pattern and many good things said below. HH, super quick delivery.
