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.
