All of the HYPE about this product was 100% accurate..!! The fit & finish are superb. The blade is CRAZY sharp!! Overall the knife is a work of art although it will be treated as my "EDC" to be used when needed. I own many knives but none of mine compare to this top of the line "BEAST". Well worth the money!!!

This is for me, the finest pocket knife in the world. It's built better than any other knife. You can find similar steel on other knives but it's not the same. I like the DLC coating on this blade because I generally like black blades but also, this coating lets you use the knife without scratching it easily and on an expensive knife you don't want scratches but you also still want to use the thing. A knife this expensive is not for everyone, some people can't understand buying the best when something almost as good can be had for only about 100 or 200 bucks. I have those knives too. I have many knives just as sharp that look just as good, but they just aren't the same animal. This is my fourth Rockstead knife and until you have had one in your hand, you can't understand what all the fuss is about. They just get everything so right. If you are a knife lover, you need at least one Rockstead in your collection. They don't make many so if you see one you like, you better grab it while you can. I waited 8 months for this one to be available. It is my favorite BTW, but if you like smaller knives, get the KOU, it's almost the same but smaller size and price. If you need to sell a few knives to buy one of these, do it. Rocketed is so worth owning and using.

Masterpiece of functional art/craftsmanship.
Amazing design and execution. Amazing finish on the scale and blade. Amazingly sharp. Perfect lockup with no stick. Smooth, buttery pivot. Zero blade play. Comes with a nice deer skin chamois for wiping off smudges. Knife is a bit heavy due to blade thickness but not heavier than same size knives with same blade gauge. Knife is not a flipper or assisted so it's not as easy as some to deploy. It's easy to open one handed for young dextrous people, using the thumb stud. Would kind of expect a deep pocket milled clip rather than cut/pressed stamped but that's ok sometimes clips catch and get bent.
