About 10 ? years ago Rough Rider made a variety of lockbacks and they are very good knives. I have quite a few. Zero blade play & sharp.
You have a top notch collection. There are so many different lockbacks it could be the focus of a huge collection, at least a few thousand knives.

So true, KJ! It's very easy to get carried away!

That's a awesome collection :shock: I've a few kickbacks including a gifted Buck 110 from this very group , my second knife I owned as a kid was a copy of a buck 110 so always had a thing for them , sadly one of the uk laws is no lock :( so rarely carry one unless camping, but I carried my 1973 puma game warden 970 yesterday , I had a 1980 puma cadet but i gifted it to my nephew when he joined the RAF 7yrs ago and he still carrys it ::tu::

Somebody, with any level of intelligence, explain to the world any rational reason at all for banning a knife that locks back ????? Are straight, fixed blades banned too????? ::facepalm:: J.O'.

And there's still several I left out (about ten). This was just what was on-hand. These range from bargain bin specials (Kabar 3189, Bear Hunter, Nite Ize, Stone River Gear/Stihl), to budget FRN models made in USA (Gerber, Camillus, Schrade, Buck), to the standard Buck, to everyone's clones of it from the '70s-present. No offense, but I think the Browning Sportsman and Gerber Folding Sportsman II are better done.

I just noticed the Stone River Gear is a linerlock. D'Oh!!

In the UK the blade has to be under 3inches and non locking to be a legal carry , fixed blades are illegal to carry so they class lock blades as fixed blades, if camping etc and if you have good reason to carry then a fixed blade and lock knife is ok ::tu::
