Rockstead HIZEN - ZDP Folding Knife 70mm
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 HIZEN is the compact EDC powerhouse of the Rockstead lineup. Featuring Rockstead’s high performing compound “zero grind” (HONZUKURI) made of ~66 HRC ZDP-189, the HIZEN makes no compromises on performance and edge quality/life.
The handle also follows suit with Rockstead’s design cues, and excellent construction. Two slabs of A7075 Duralumin are beautifully sculpted for a positive hand-feel, and visual intrigue in the light. The overall impression of the handle is a sturdy and lightweight, purpose built housing for the blade.
The HIZEN is one of the titans of compact EDC folders. At just 74 grams (2.6 oz), the HIZEN punches way above its weight. The handle is elegant and comfortable, and provides a great handle to the high performing, beautifully finished, blade. This knife perfectly compliments the EDC knife user who appreciates the quality and work put into these knives, but still puts them to use.
Rockstead knives can be registered online to access their lifetime warranty, and free sharpening programs. Rockstead suggests using their sharpening program exclusively. Disassembly does not void the warranty of HIZEN models, but we advise you to exercise caution.
