We are honored to be an officially licensed supplier for Knights of Columbus rosaries. These are the WWI Battle Beads versions handmade daily in the Rugged Rosaries workshop. 

The WWI Battle Beads are a historical design inspired by the pull-chain rosaries distributed to soldiers, sailors, and flying aces during WWI. Our thoughtful reproduction of the original vintage rosaries is a close duplication with the addition of the emblem of the Knights of Columbus. You can carry it proudly as your Spiritual Weapon!

These rosaries are quite strong, do not tangle, are small and portable, and very easy to carry in your pocket. The Rugged Rosaries' WWI design has slightly larger Our Father beads to aid your meditative prayer. You can feel where you are on the rosary without looking at it.

The beads feel natural, strong, and weighty in your hands. You will LOVE this rosary!

Please see the reviews below for our WWI Battle Beads... over 3000 5-star reviews. 

A portion of all Knights of Columbus sales goes directly to the Knights of Columbus Warriors to Lourdes program. We also donate these rosaries for that same program every year.

My favorite rosary makers!

I have now purchased at least 5 or 6 rosaries from Rugged Rosaries and each one has been made beautifully and strong! I would (and have) recommend them to anyone looking for a rosary that won't fall apart about a year. In my experience there is no other company that can compare to Rugged Rosaries!

Great Rosary

This is a great rosary. Solid construction and it feels really good in hand.

Seven Sorrows Battle Bead Rosary

I bought two of these, one for me and one for Mrs. Me. They are perfect rosaries for us because we wind up with a lot of broken rosaries, with 6 grand kids just around the corner from us. I used to be good at fixing the broken ones, but now that I'm 75, not so much. I have about six rosaries from Rugged Rosaries and I love all of them.

A Blessing and a Lifeline

The rosary is a lifeline for my care of veterans wounded by war
