RR836 Canittler

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!

Think Pink! I'm guessing SMKW releases pink knives under the misguided notion they will be more appealing for women. Maybe so, but my money is on more men picking up the pink knives than women. (Sort of like what happened to Lionel's Pink locomotive and pastel colored train set.)

Rough Rider has a couple pink knife series. This canittler belongs to the "Pink Lemonade" series. Their is also a series that supports Breast Cancer Research. Hopefully the canittler will be released in that series as well as the other Support The Cause series. As with most of the Pink knives, the dye job is intentionally uneven. They are some of the prettiest knives Rough Rider makes. Real men are not afraid to put a pink knife in their collection!
