 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.

One of the aspects of the earlier Rockstead knives is the unique Honzikuri Triple Grind which Rockstead no longer offers ~ the Bevel is shaped into Three Seperate areas.

 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. 


   The handles are precision cast Aluminum with a Black/HV400 Surface Coating.  Very few of each model are crafted, and each knife has an individual serial number.

This knife is Serial Number #215 of only 300 produced. 

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.   


The Pocket clip is set for Tip Up carry. Extremely impressive all the way around, a folder that looks great and would be a pleasure to use.
