Rockstead SHU-C-ZDP Japanese Folding Knife 3.25" ZDP-189 Mirror Finish Blade, Titanium Handles
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 semi-custom folder is worth the premium price tag. The SHU-C-ZDP folder features a 3.25" ZDP-189, mirror-finish blade with blasted flats and lightweight titanium handles with apricot artwork engravings on both sides. The cutout in the handle scales provide good ergonomics while the finger choil allows you to choke up on the blade for more precise tasks. 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 included pocket clip can be attached for tip-up, right side carry. Each knife is individually numbered and includes a certificate of authenticity.
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.
