Rough Rider does a fantastic job of providing a razor sharp edge right out of the box, and they make their blades from quality 440 stainless steel. They use 440, because it holds an edge fairly well and doesn’t take a lot to sharpen back up. It’s very similar to having an old carbon blade, but without the corrosion issues. Rough Rider finished the blades with a beautiful reverse frosted etch. It’s the little details like the embellishment that scream high-quality and luxury knife.
The Rough Rider Bolster Stripes series features handles made of genuine jigged peach seed bone. The series takes its name from bolsters that feature predominant striping. It’s not only unique, but also shows off the wonderful craftsmanship that Rough Rider has to offer.

Rough Rider has done a fantastic job of being loyal to their customers. They continually increase quality, while not increasing cost to the consumer. I wish more cutlery companies would do the same, but at least Rough Rider is here to stay. I found the Rough Rider Bolster Stripes series at Smoky Mountain Knife Works – smkw.com.
