Rockstead NEHAN - ZDP Folding Knife 65mm Titanium Handle (#1 - Ebonite (ER))
Since its inception over 70 years ago, Rockstead Knives have been producing unique and extremely high performing fixed and folding knives. Rockstead specializes in unorthodox manual machining practices and modern materials to output knives that create a league of their own.
The NEHAN is a standalone flagship in the Rockstead catalog, designed by renowned knife maker, Koji Hara. The blade is ground with a “zero grind” (HONZUKURI), and made from an astounding 67 HRC hardened ZDP-189. This provides a razor sharp, stout, utilitarian blade profile.
The handle completes the package for the NEHAN. The sculpted Ebonite material mimics the likes of a Kimono flowing, and dances in the light. It seamlessly mates with the titanium liners and backspacer, in a faux-integral construction. Integrated into the show side handle is the polished button-lock mechanism. This provides the NEHAN a smooth, hydraulic deployment action, and a rock-solid lockup.
The NEHAN is the Rockstead embodiment of quality and elegance. It’s size and versatility makes it a valuable EDC companion to enthusiasts, or the centrepiece of any knife collection display. It is truly a testament to the precision and craftsmanship of Rockstead, without forgoing their unique blade geometry, hardness properties, and masterful finishing.
