Rockstead Knives - Some of the finest Japanese knife technology in the world. Hardened to a Rockwell of 65-67 these razors just keep on cutting. They only need to be honed not sharpened. I believe Rockstead knives are amongst the finest available . I have use one for the past 10 years and found it to be more reliable in every way than any other custom or production knife. It has become my standard for quality.
