RSSHUNZDP: SHUN-ZDP
Rockstead
 
The Rockstead SHUN-ZDP Japanese folder is a design by well-known Belarusian knifemaker, Dmitry Sinkevich. With his creative and innovative design combined with Rockstead's meticulous craftsmanship, this semi-custom folder is worth the premium price tag. With the 4.125" ZDP-189/VG10 clad steel, mirror finish blade, the SHUN-ZDP is the largest folder in Rockstead's lineup. The opening action is incredibly smooth while the titanium handle frame lock securely keeps the blade locked in place. The 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 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. Tip-up carry clip. 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.
