Hi Everyone,
I am a new member of the forum. I look forward to participating in great discussions. Although I am new at collecting slipjoint knives, I have been able to acquire a listing or resource that I hope will be of benefit to those that collect Rough Rider knives. I have sent the administrator a spreadsheet that I am in hopes he will be able to post the spreadsheet so everyone can have this resource. I believe it lists all Rough Rider knives that have been sold by SMKW. I contacted them and explained that I was doing research and Mr. Pipes was kind enough to have his staff prepare a spreadsheet that listed by date sold all RR knives. The listing has the RR number or item number, year first sold, a description of the type knife (barlow, whittler, canoe, etc.), number of blades, length of blades, length of knife closed, handle material, color, etc. I do not know if the administrator will post the spreadsheet in this section of the forum or elsewhere, but I do hope it gets posted. The spreadsheet is in "OpenOffice format" but should be accessible to those that use 'Excel".
Although new to collecting knives, I have been able to acquire 30 Case and 36 Rough Rider knives in the last couple months. I enjoy reading your post about knives you have. Hopefully, I will be able to make a meaningful contribution in the future. :D

Welcome aboard! I hope to see that spreadsheet. I didn’t see if you are including number of knives produced or not? I would be surprised if Kevin would let that information out, but it would be great information to have.
Post some pictures of your knives.

Hopefully these pictures come thru showing the cobbled together effort to make storage cases/chest for my knife collection These are not all of my knives as these pictures are several weeks old. The one storage case is three tier, while the other is only 2 tier. The chest is used for the few non-slipjoint knives (fixed blade) and the original boxes that came with the new knives. I also use the chest to store my lansky sharpener, wiping clothes, etc.

No ringer here. Just an old retired Louisvillian (KY) that enjoys woodworking. I still have not heard from the administrator where he/she will be posting the spreadsheet on the RR knives. Kevin did not provide any info on the number of each item/model sold. Anyone else from Louisville on the forum?

Here is the link the administrator gave me so you can access the spread sheet of information on Rough Rider knives. I hope it is useful to those that collect RR knives. Thanks go out to Mr. Pipes at SMKW for getting his staff to prepare this spread sheet.

https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/pa ... dsheet.htm

UPDATE
This link only has a portion of the information submitted. It eliminated one of the most important columns that gave info on length of knife closed, in some cases additional info on the shield, etc. I have contacted the administrator to try to get the complete file posted. During the interim, if anyone wants the complete file in "OpenOffice" format, you can PM me with your email address and I will send you the complete file.
