The Rough Ryder Black G-10 Fixed Blade is big enough, beefy enough, and gosh darn it we just like it. The only thing missing is a catchy name. We’d like to suggest the Fatty McSheepscliffe.* This behemoth is a fat, fun chopper with a great profile and a budget friendly price of about $20.
With an overall length of 8”, this knife is actually sized about right for daily carry. We’re calling this one a behemoth not because it’s a ginormous hunk of steel. It’s not the length on this knife, it’s the girth. The 3.5” 440A sheepscliffe blade has a bit of a belly and a blade thickness of a whopping 0.19”. That’s a pretty danged fat blade for an under-4” blade length.
It’s a full tang fixed blade with a handle length of 4.5” and contoured black G-10 handle scales. it’s got a surprising comfortable grip. It comes with a black nylon dangler sheath with a leg tie, so the knife moves with you without repeatedly banging against your leg. It’s secured by frustration-free EZ Snaps and a secondary safety strap.
