    Can't speak on their knives. But their rubbers work alright.

    Their "Case-like" knives are worth the money. Don't know about collectability. Some are fairly nice looking. Their name was rough rIder until recently and they switched back to the Y. I have two or three.

    Good looking knives but the metal (stay sharp) is not so good. The
    old saying, "you get what you pay for" applies here.

    I don't think there's much collector value in them, but folks can collect whatever makes them happy.
    Are RR knives US or China?

    I have a bunch of RR's. At their price point you can "try" patterns that you normally wouldn't think about. The problem I have is I won't carry an expensive knife. I don't mind stripping wire or cutting vines from the tiller tines with a RR. A local vendor's mall has them for $9 each and I usually buy one or two every time I go. I have found them to be above their price point in quality and I have had zero issues with edge retention. IMHO they will never be collectable. There isn't a history or mystique with something made overseas.

    Im pretty rough on pocket knives. I have alot of good knives..but they usually stay at home. For every day carrying, i prefer old timers, but i do have a few rough riders. For their price, they are good knives. And i dont have to worry if i break a blade, or if i loose them.

    I like em, I my main gutting and skinning knives are rough riders they are a hard steel and I use a paper kit to resharpen, they are cheap, so if I mess one up I toss it and pull out a new one.
