Rockstead Knives are, in our opinion, some of the best production knives available on the market. With Rockstead's meticulous craftsmanship and unique designs, this compact semi-custom neck knife is worth every penny. The CHOU-B neck knife features a 1.875" YXR7, DLC polished blade and a silk wrapped handle. Its slim compact profile makes it virtually unnoticeable when carrying around your neck or in your pocket. 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 because if any scratches occur during this process, the blade must be sent back to the previous step for refinishing. 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 sharp edge like no other. The CHOU-B neck knife fits nice and snug in the include Kydex sheath.

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.

Cons: None
This knife lives to its reputation!
Expensive? yes but worth every single penny and the pictures do little to show the true beauty o this piece of art! If anyone has seen the Rockstead demos where they just push their knives to a telephone book after chopping bamboo, you have to believe it. I did the same in front of an amazed crowd. This little knife does just that with ease. Finish is absolutely of best quality. I'd buy another in a heartbeat at the same price.
