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.

Strong, Sacred and beautiful… I carry it with me wherever I go

I absolutely love my Rosary and carry it with me wherever I go. I had another Combat Rosary for many years but unfortunately lost it recently when getting out of my car (it had been on my lap and I didn’t notice it falling off when I had to get out of my car for a moment) … I was SO sad when I realized I had lost it … by the time I came back to the area where I lost it, it was gone… but I am sure the person who found it really must have needed it 🙏😇🙏
I felt “bare” without my Rosary however, since I had carried that one everywhere …. I slept with it too. I had other Rosaries and really loved them too but needed an especially strong and durable one … especially for when I am walking my two dogs:)
So I found this one and ordered it ASAP… decided to get some extra medals as well… and I absolutely LOVE it. I had it blessed by a wonderful Priest as soon as I received it… and carry it with me everywhere :) I think the “upgraded” Crucifix is absolutely exquisite. Thank you for a wonderful Rosary, Rugged Rosaries, and May God bless each one of you, and all of those reading this review, and all of your loved ones, in a most special and beautiful way.

Excellent Rosaries

I'm very pleased with the battle beads rosaries and other small items like the scapulars I ordered. They are of excellent quality and the right size to wear around my neck. I already have a few nice RR paracord ones, so I expect nothing less from RR

Great gift

I received a single decade WWI Battle Beads rosary as a Christmas gift last year and I love it!
When we needed a gift for the RCIA candidate we sponsored this year, I immediately thought of another WWI Battle Beads rosary. He loved it!
These rosaries are designed to last and they feel substantial in your hands, making it easier to pray the rosary while wearing gloves. I pray the rosary while driving to work everyday and using this rosary is a blessing, especially on cold winter mornings when I must wear gloves.

Wonderful gift

I gave this rosary to my godson for his Confirmation, and he loved it. It is a great weight, and feels good in your hands. It has a masculine look that guys will appreciate. My godson especially like the cross made of nails. I will be buying more as gifts.
