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.
Rockstead Knives are all individually numbered and come with a wood presentation box, microfiber cloth, warranty information and Certification of Authenticity specific to each individual knife.
Their Shin model, meaning “Trust”, features a mirror-polished Honzukuri/Hamaguri (convex) edge grind, 3D machined and contoured Aluminum handle scales that have beautiful fluting and Stingray inlays, blued steel tab-lock, and blued steel pocket clip.
The ZDP version of the Shin features a blade of ZDP-189 clad in VG-10, and the edge has been given a beautiful glossy mirror polish.
