Rough Rider RR1078 Outdoorsman's Canoe Lock-Back (Canittler)

See also Locking Canoe Whittlers

I'm not aware of another company making this pattern. Rough rider offers it in four handle patterns. All blades operate on their own springs with the spear master using the center lock back spring. This spring protrudes ever so slightly when the knife is closed. I don't consider this a reason not to but the knife but more an inherent design flaw caused by the location of the center lock. The lock is positive and all knives in the series are excellent.

I have several knives in the Outdoorman's Series but I like this one the most. The tabacco smooth bone seems somewhat splotchy which adds to the character.
