Rockstead factory custom knives (Sakai, Japan) are known to be among the finest in the world

We released the 涅槃NEHAN from 2007 to 2010. At this time, we decided to reproduce this model designed by Koji Hara. He is also very famous custom knife maker in the world. Almost a design is the same compared to the original model. However, all structures are totally difference. Consequently, new 涅槃NEHAN is more high-completed than original one. Also, this is the highest quality folding knife with Rockstead's expertise clutivated through knife production.
Manual button lock mechanism as used in the 秀SHU and 良RYO model.

The handle is made from Ebonite, an extremely durable material used high-end fountain pens, bound to a titanium handle.

This design was imaged by the folds of a Japanese Kimono, whilst the thumb stud was designed in the shape of a flower. These heterogeneous materials SIMULTANEOUS PRECISION FINISHING are accumulated technologies by 鈍 DON"s handle manufacturing process.
These external design features are by no means the only elements that reflect the love of detail and the pursuit of perfection. The real innovation of the 涅槃 NEHAN is hidden within it and consists of the way in which the two halves of the handle are joined together. This construction was developed by ROCKSTEAD and means no externally visible screws are required as these are contained entirely within the handle. Hence nothing can affect the harmony of the external image. Also new is the design of the knife sheath. Whilst the first version of the 涅槃 NEHAN still incorporated a belt loop, the new one has a practical belt clip. The "NEHAN" was designed as a gentleman's knife and is manufactured exclusively using ZDP189 blade steel. The unique ROCKSTEAD mirror polish and the HONZUKURI blade geometry for maximum performance are featured. Comes with a leather sheath with belt clip.
