Rough Rider's RR383 Orange Smooth Bone Canoe-Whittler ( Canittler)


See also Rough Rider Canittlers

What's a canittler? A canittler is a knife built on a Canoe frame but has three blades set up in whittler fashion. That is, a Canoe with a large clip or spear blade at the top bolster, and pen and coping blades and the rear bolster.

As far as I know, the small canittlers are unique to the Rough Rider brand. That is no one has ever made a knife in this size or pattern and no one other than Rough Rider is currently making it. The knife is very small (2.25 inches closed). Despite this, it featers a split back spring just as you find on larger whittlers. Fitand finish is quite remarkable as is the knfe's finctionality. It easily fits just about anywhere and is as sharp as a razor blade, making ideal for small cutting chores. If you like small knives like baby toothpicks or peanuts, you will like this knife . If you like canoes or whittlers, then again, the canittler is perfect addition. Even if you're just looking for something that is out of the ordinary, you flat-out just can't go wrong with a canittler!

This is my only Orange Smooth Bone Rough Rider. They have made very few knives with orange handles. I intend to get more if possible. The orange looks exceptionally nice. That said, I assume that due to the lack of offerings it really isn't in high demand. Perhaps this may lead to it increasing in value over time. Then again, maybe not. Either way, considering the quality of the Rough Rider Canittler, you can't go wrong if you buy this knife.
