Rough Rider released an ingenious series of knives. The Rough Rider Easy Money series has genuine shredded money in the acrylic handles. Since they’re available for less than $15, you can also get these unique knives without breaking your piggy bank.
Rough Rider secured shredded US currency from the federal reserve and created some amazing handles out of it. Mounted on a brass liner, the handles have an acrylic overlay so you can see all the “Easy Money” right in the handles. The pinched and lined nickel silver slant bolsters also feature the “Slant ‘R” Rough Rider emblem, and as with most of the Rough Rider series, these knives come in a magnetic collector’s box.
Each knife in the Rough Rider Easy Money series features stainless steel blades with half stops and match strike pulls. The blades are mirror polished and the main blade has an “Easy Money” blade etch. The spines all have a swedge which adds a clean, old school touch to the knives.
The Easy Money series is available in the following patterns: Trapper, Congress, Canoe, Straight Razor. Coming soon: Stockman, Small Moose, Hawkbill, and Lady Leg.
