The factory custom knife
ROCKSTEAD KNIFE is recognized as the factory custom knife. We use the advanced machine tool. But the eight staffs do the specular processing etc. of the blade by the hand work and we accept improvement according to customers’ needs. The factory-custom-knife is completely different from the mass-production-knife in the quality. Caution The coating on the blade surface is removed. Please wipe it after use,for rustproof.
1. The blade shape is unique.
We adapted the shape of the traditional Japanese sword blade to our knife. The basic shapes is known as the HONZUKURI. We have made the KATAKIRIBA style for several years, and have recently introduced the HONZUKURI style. This is excellent blade shapes based on our research of the time-tested traditional Japanese sword. They have this most important features of a quality blade ― strength and cutting ability. The ROCKSTEAD blade shape makes best use of Samurai sword tradition to create the perfect knife. And now this fine blade is available to you.
2. The blade surface has a mirror finish.
The mirror surface on our knife goes continuously to the edge of the blade. You will never see another knife like our knives. After comparing photomicrographs the difference becomes apparent. The tip of the blade of ROCKSTEAD is smooth, while other knives are more like the tip of a saw blade. Roughness in the tip of the blade is the cause of nicks.
3. The steel material is different.
YXR7 steel is a material that is not easy to make into a knife. However, its high hardness and high toughness make it an excellent choice as a cutlery steel material. Its one fault is that it rusts somewhat easily. However, when it was coated with DLC and given a mirror finish to make up for this fault, the added benefit of a permanent beauty was obtained. The ROCKSTEAD knife is the strongest knife in the world. We think that the ROCKSTEAD knife would be the perfect addition to your collection.
