ROCKSTEAD HIGO II TI-ZDP (M)

$1,250.00

Rockstead Knives produce some of the best knives in the world due to their outstanding choice of quality materials, their cutting edge manufacturing techniques and processes as well as their attention to detail in regards to the fit and finish of the knives they produce. These knifes features phenomenally smooth action, resulting from phosphor-bronze washers and tight tolerances. The knives have dual thumb studs on the blades to aid in easy, ambidextrous one-handed opening/closing.

Rockstead knives are known for their phenomenal sharpness and boast producing the world’s sharpest knives. They are able to achieve this with their Honzukuri/Hamaguri (convex) edge grinds, which allow for having a thick blade without sacrificing any sharpness. The polishing process takes the knives from #400 grit, then #800, #1200, and finally to #2000 grit before final buffing to achieve that gorgeous mirror polish. This ensures an edge that is mind-blowingly sharp and one that will stand up to rigorous use while maintaining and edge that will last for quite a while.

Their Higo II model, Higo meaning “the old name of the ‘kyushu’ district” in Japan, features a mirror-polished Honzukuri/Hamaguri (convex) edge grind, 3D machined and contoured Titanium handle scales that have beautiful fluting and a matte DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) finish, strong frame-lock, and blued steel pocket clip. This model differs from the Higo-JH, which has hard anodized Aluminum front handle scale, whereas both the handle scales on this model are Titanium.

The ZDP version of the Higo II features a blade of ZDP-189 clad in VG-10, and the edge has been given a beautiful glossy mirror polish.
