    That canoe looks really nice! I really like the swedge and long pull on the main blade.

    I first became aware of these Damascus Rough Riders in the "Totin' Today" thread a couple of months ago:

    I was fascinated to see that Rough Ryder's Sous Chef has a 'Granton Edge', like on the vintage Sheffield knives below, for example:

    The Granton Edge was patented in 1928 by William Grant & Sons, a Sheffield firm, which date back to the early 20th century. Their knives are still manufactured in Sheffield.

    So, an American-designed knife, made in China, with a blade with Sheffield heritage :) :thumbsup:

    Congrats! The RR1740 Classic Carbon "large" stockman makes for an dandy EDC. Not "too big" and not "too tiny". :D

    I got this on a whim. $15 I couldn't go wrong. I have got to say this is really nicely done. Perfect centering, symmetric grind lines, no gaps, the spine edges are nice and crisp without being sharp, nice snap/pull, and it's VG-10. I also really like the texture of the aluminum.

    - well, tbh, that looks rather good.........and for $15 that is, well, crazy..........difficult to believe it can be that good, but certainly willing to try one

    Would happily pay $15 more if they put a decent swedge on it though..........it really finishes it off :thumbsup:

    30 seconds on a belt sander will give you your own swedge.

    .....proper swedge takes a wee bit longer than 30secs

    I might have gotten lucky, but the only ding I can really give it is the black coating for the bolsters. It's a little funky. They would have been better off leaving it the same green anno.
