Inquiring minds want to know.

Nice USA Barlows! The Rough Riders are mostly made in China these days Bill....I have some of their Sod or Dirt buster models as work around the garden knives and they are fairly well made for $10.....

Not the Barlow model, but I'm still daily carrying this little Rough Rider since getting it in December. Thing is holding up well to light daily use and keeping a good edge. I have buffed it up on the wheel a couple times to remove scratches and nicks from my keys and coins etc.
Little guy cuts tie wraps, strips wire, and has a needle enough point to remove about a half dozen splinters (so far)....This is my first and only Rough Rider, but I'm liking it...

I was looking at that knife on the Internet. It's a small version of the Puma and/or Italian knives. I like the style. The size is attractive.
