    Hi folks, recently got in a peanut so that displaced the Rough Rider I had in my watch pocket, I have worked to thin down the main blade so while not pretty, she cuts well, as do both the small pen and coping blades.

    Terms of the Give Away;

    Must be living and a member of the forum....

    And must post an 'I'm In' in this thread

    Due to the inexpensive nature of this folder, it will be limited to the USofA

    On Sunday nite, August 12th, I'll run a random number generator to pick the post number of the winner.

    here are a few images of this folder, pretty nice one, but like I say, the main blade sides are now a more brushed finish as I was using my sharpening stones to thin the blade down to cut better.

    btw the tiger eye stone in this photo was a gift from my friend @Win Heger and is NOT being sent with the knife, actually Win was kind enough to send a box of stones from Utah for my grandson, and I was allowed to have one for my pocket, I have a good friend in Win and an very good grandson :)

    Not an entry, but I just wanted to say that is a nice looking whittler.

    Actually, if I can enter on behalf of @r redden I would like to do that.

    Thanks for the opportunity :)

    Not an entry as not qualified :cool: but no, I have one of these knives already-albeit in lowly delrin. A very worthwhile cutter and a decent pocket friend, thanks to Gary and all who take part in this thoughtful GAW :thumbsup:

    Regards, Will
