Rockstead Knives are, in our opinion, some of the best knives available on the market. With Rockstead’s meticulous craftsmanship and unique designs, this semi-custom folder is worth the premium price tag. The HIZEN is the smallest folder in Rockstead’s lineup. It features a 2.875″ ZDP-189 mirror finish blade and duralumin handles. The handle scales are connected with just two screws which allows for easy disassembly for cleaning. The opening action is smooth with a solid frame lock to securely keep the blade locked in place. The incredible mirror finish is achieved by heat treating the blade and gradually hand grinding through 400, 600, 800, 1,200 and 2,000 grits wet-dry sandpaper. This is very intense and time-consuming. Once this is complete, the blade will be buffed for the final finish. The folks at Rockstead have mastered this process to give the knife a beautiful finish and an extremely sharp edge. Each knife is individually numbered and includes a certificate of authenticity.
With proper maintenance, Rocksteads are known to keep a sharp edge for 2-3 years. Rockstead Knives come with free sharpening and regrinding. You would be responsible for shipping charges to and from Japan.
