Product Description

ROCKSTEAD KNIVES

 ROCKSTEAD KNIVES are easily recognized in an elite group of Production / Custom knives. They utilize the worlds most advanced machining tools and create parts to amazingly tight tolerances, but their small staff do all processing of the blades by hand. The factory-custom-knife is completely different from the mass-production-knife in  quality and fit & finish.

Rockstead uses the most modern equipment to maximize the qualities of the Blades –  be it the perfect grind or the Heat Treat of the Steel! 

 Here is but one Video that shows the amazing ability of Rockstead’s knives, a combined effort of the High Quality Blade Steel, Expert Heat Treat and the unique Honzukuri shaped blade! 

The blade Floats open effortlessly, perfect detent and excellent secure lock up.  One of the unique attributes of the Hizen is that it has a Replaceable Lock Face!

The ergonomics on this Knife are wonderful – Traction Ridges on the Frame and Thumb Ridges on the Spine aid the security but are still very comfortable.
