Rough Rider’s RR 711 Large Toothpick (Rifleman Series)

See also: Large (5 Inch) Toothpicks


Currently Rough Rider offers five large toothpick knives.  In most cases, each of the five knives is unique unto itself with different styles of bolsters, blade etches and handle materials.  In every case, the large frame toothpicks are have been made as part of some other popular series of knives.  Despite every knife having unique features, they are all based on the same frame and same style 4 inch clip blade.  This frame and blade design is shared with SMKW’s Marbles Trademark line of large frame toothpicks. Schrade as well as Raging Bull Knives, (a small independent importer) apparently had their large frame toothpicks made on the same frame, as well.


\RR711- Rifleman Series Toothpick


Description:
Part of the Rifleman Series, this toothpick has chestnut bone handles featuring a checkerboard or gun-stock jig. The triple ringed nickel-silver bolsters are the same as those used on Marbles' and Raging Bull knives are are most likely the "standard" bolster for the 5 inch toothpicks made in the SMKW factory.

The shield on the knife is a 1873 Winchester lever action rifle. The knife features the "Rifleman" blade etch common to the series. The gun-stock jigging is exquisite and, , in my opinion., probably second only to the sawcut bone
