Rough Rider’s RR112 Peanut

Part of my White Smooth Bone Collection

Peanut (RR 112)

The first peanut I ever bought was the Rough Rider WSB peanut.  At 2 7/8 inches with the main clip and small pen blade it is as traditional as they come. The slight dogleg slant of the frame makes it easy to hold and pleasing to use.  The blade open quite smoothly, in fact the pen blade is easier to open than the pen blade on my Case Peanuts!  In many ways, I think the Rough Rider Peanuts (and there are lots of them) are probably the best peanuts currently being made, especially for the price you’re going to pay.
I’m going to sum up my WSB peanut in one word:  Flawless.  It is simply a terrific little knife.  If you want a better made peanut, you’re going to have to spend three or maybe four times as much as a single Rough Rider peanut.

Other patterns & handle Materials:
Rough Rider has an extensive selection of Peanuts in most handle materials. As this is a small pattern knife many of the series that feature only medium and large pattern knives omit the peanut due primarily to the complecity of trying to apply a reverse frosted blade etch to the main blade and/or scaling down the shields or bolsters to fit the tiny frames.
