I am "sure" that the Rough Rider Brian Yellowhorse and Custom file work models purchased for $15 each wholesale will increase triple in value within five years. The workmanship is astounding for the price. Someone else stated that they'd take Rough Rider over the current Case at twice the price which is what inspired me to look at them. The times they are a changing. . .
wildjim, IMHO I don't see that happening; at least in my lifetime. I have bought 3; just to see for myself. Two Marbles and one RR toe; I have to admit the Marbles toes are better made than the RR. To each his own; but they are not for me; I can't give these away for $0.95 on eBay.
Well Smokey Mountain Knife Works has a great investment in Rough Rider and they are a "huge" reseller. I'll defer to SMKW experience and insight ; ) as wishing and hoping and denial ain't going to change the current market trend of foreign manufacturing. . .
