    Thoughts on Steel Warrior Knives


    ADVERTISEMENT
    They have some nice looking classic slipies and traditional lockbacks. I believe they are made(or owned) by Frost.

    I love Case and GEC and old Schrade slipies and I was wondering how the Steel Warrior knives are viewed as I'm not familiar with them. They "look" pretty decent.

    Thanks.

    I prefer to buy American made traditional knives, so I've not tried Steel Warriors.

    As opposed to most things Frost, they aren't bad at all. I have had a few and while they may have resolved the issue by now (it's been a while), the slippies had a problem of scales/shields loosening. Otherwise they have been great in every reasonable department. I have a fixed blade "Coon Hunter" that I use a lot around the house. I like it so much, I'm thinking about having a custom made in it's image.

    As far as the whole "Chinese Slippie" thing goes though, I like Rough Riders better. I've carried a small Stockman in orange smooth bone for years and I love that little $5 knife. The blade shapes are perfect and unlike any other stockman I've handled and the orange bone is gorgeous. If an American company made this exact knife, I'd be all over it as a replacement, but as far as I know, they don't.

    Steel Warrior and Rough Rider knives are probably produced by the same manufacturing companies.

    I own examples of both brands and they are both very well made for the money. The only thing I don't like about SW knives is the logo. The picture of the Samurai Warrior or whatever he is, doesn't seem to match well with a traditional knife. But I have a SW stockman with some of the nicest stag scales I've ever seen.

    If you shop for Rough Rider knives you'll find more choices. Rough Rider makes a few different knives with yellow synthetic scales that I really like.

    Was checking one of these out...under $20.

    Just bought a sweet vintage Schrade and a new Case this week...I think I'll try one of these.

    The above SW's look pretty nice.

    IMO Rough Rider knives are better F&F. If they are made by the same producer it gets me because the SW i own and the ones I have seen were not as nice as the Rough Riders.

    And then won this sweet Case also.
