My first theory is that this is a placeholder price, as it's "ON HOLD"
But in my opinion, you're only missing a lack of common sense and money without brains. The stimulus checks were unneeded and many people just wasted them on junk they did not need--it's part of what's driving the collectibles market nuts. That's part of the reason this ended up at $468 for a RR. With mine, I paid off a new computer that fully suited my needs (after having to put up with a refurbished pile of junk for a year and a half), bought a new pair of boots (I didn't have any hiking boots that fit), some clothes that actually fit me, and will start an IT course over the summer. Yeah, I bought some shiny stuff as well, but that was less than $200 worth. I still have enough to cover other expenses as they come up.
I know it's been a while since I last saw these in an SMKW catalog, but they were $20. I understand some people like collecting Rough Riders, and will pay more than MSRP, but I won't. They're my "So I don't have to use my good Case, Schrade, Camillus, Queen or Buck" knives; but some patterns, like the Work Knife (linerlock Sodbuster) get EDC'd regularly.
Secondly, this is about the dumbest intended design of a knife ever made. It's a hawkbill, and I like the pattern, but it was advertised as also being a hoofpick. One WILL damage a horse's hoof, especially the sensitive frog with it. The current Trapper-based equestrian's knife Case and RR make is better. I always carried a dedicated pick (fixed and folding), a cheap tack store horseman's knife, or a really nice one a local blacksmith gave me made from a horseshoe.It's a great rope, baler twine, and feed sack knife (which is why I have several USA Kleins), but that's it.
