Rockstead KON-DLC Japanese Fixed 5.24" YXR7 DLC Polished Blade, Black Wood Micarta Handles
The KON-DLC fixed blade knife by Rockstead boasts a 5.25" YXR7 DLC polished blade with wood Micarta handles. The mirror finish is achieved by heat treating the blade and gradually hand grinding through 400, 600, 800, 1200 and 2000 grit wet-dry sandpaper. This is very intense and time-consuming because if any scratches were to 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. Each knife is individually numbered and includes a certificate of authenticity. Includes wooden storage box.
With proper maintenance, Rocksteads are known to keep a sharp edge for 2-3 years. Rockstead Knives do come with free sharpening and regrinding. You would be responsible for shipping charges to and from Japan.
