Rockstead CHOU-IW Fixed Blade 45mm Ironwood Handle
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 mirror-polished blade features a symmetrically convexed zero-grind, referred to as “Honzukuri”. This provides both a robust and fine edge, suitable for most daily cutting tasks. The polished YXR-7 blade is hardened to an astounding 65.2 HRC to stay razor sharp for years. The diamond-like coating (DLC) on the blade is as hard as it is thin, protecting the carbon steel from the elements.
This neck knife has Ironwood scales for the handles. Rockstead CHOU models also come with a custom Kydex Sheath, for a versatile and slim carry.
Rockstead knives can be registered online to access their lifetime warranty, and free sharpening programs. Rockstead suggests using their sharpening program exclusively.
