 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.

 This is an elegant Gentleman’s framelock folder that is one of the most affordable knives in the Rockstead line.  This is a Rare Discontinued Higo HPC-ST model from Rockstead

Rockstead Closed

This knife has a Perfectly Ground Two-Tone Blade of Solid YXR7 steel.  This knife is approximately 8-10 years Okld ~ Very hard to find with the two-tone blade.  I have seen thousands of knives ~ Rockstead knives have the most perfect Mirror Polished blades that I have ever seen.  The Ventiliated handle Scales have a Turkish Inspired Grid Pattern ~ precision Cast Aluminum with a Black/HV400 Surface Coating.

Rockstead Open Blade

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! 

(Please excuse the Oil on the Blade in the pic below, it make the blade appear mottled ~ in fact it is perfectly polished)

Rockstead Blade

 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.  

Very few of each Model are made, each knife has its own serial number ~ this knife is Serial Number #134

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. 

If you want to experience the near perfection of what Man and Machine can accomplish in a knife ~ you need to own a Rockstead.

Comes with Rockstead Polishing Cloth but No Box, COA or Warranty 

This knife is previously owned but never used, carried or sharpened.
