Rough Rider’s RR1035 Big Daddy Barlow

Part of my White Smooth Bone Collection

Big Daddy Barlow (RR 1035)

I’m guessing “Grand Daddy Barlow” like “Sodbuster” is trademark protected by someone or maybe Rough Rider just likes to set its five inch Barlow apart from the others.  Either way, the Big Daddy is very big and it is also an excellent build.  The huge four inch clip blade has a nice swedge on the top which just adds to the knives beauty.   Like its smaller brother, the Big Daddy has the Rough Rider Horseshoe stamped in the bolster. 

The big blade features a nice swedge and is razor sharp from the factory.  The blade walks and talks nicely; snapping to the half and full open position.  Stay and place is also exceptional with minimal, if any blade wobble.  Despite a nice strong back spring, the length of blade makes opening and closing very smooth.  SMKW has used this same Barlow frame and clip blade for other trademarks they own, primarily Marbles and Colt including the Marbles Scrimshaw series.
