The Ryo, which is Japanese for “Good”, is a very unique everyday carry knife. It stands out for several reasons.
First, the blade. It utilizes the Rockstead ‘Honzukuri’ style blade, where it has been sharpened is such a way that it is convex, but without a micro bevel. Rockstead believes this is the ultimate shape and geometry for cutting tasks. Combine that with the ultra-smooth mirror finish of the blade and their ZDP189 steel and you get unbelievable edge retention. The hardness of the knife may vary, but the exact hardness is visible on the certificate accompanying the knife (Rockstead tests them individually). The shape of the Ryo is based on traditional Higonokami knives, which are very common Japanese pocket knives, often handed out at schools to sharpen pencils.
Second, the Ryo has a hide-away pocket clip. Pocket knife users sometimes dislike pocket clips, because it doesn’t feel comfortable when using them. The pocket clip of the Ryo can slide away into the handle, so you don’t feel it while cutting.
The handle itself is made of titanium, which has been DLC (diamond like carbon) Prism coated. Much like "regular" DLC coating, the Titanium is placed in an oven, where it is heated to 400˚C. This way they bond Carbon to the material, reaching a hardness close to that of a diamond. During the process, they add a special coating, giving it the 'prism' look. The handle now has a playful, multicoloured sheen to it, without compromising the class of the Ryo.
The Ryo has a total length of 196mm. The blade is 80mm with a thickness of 3.2mm. It weighs 124 grams.
