The Rockstead Chou is a small fixed blade. The blade crafted from YXR7 with a Diamond Like Carbon coating. The etching on the blade represents either waves on both sides a plumtree. Both are common in traditional Japanese art. This particular piece shows the beautiful wave etching.
Its Shinogizukuri style blade gives it strength and excellent cutting capability. Gradually reducing the angle of the blade from 30˚ (15 per side) at the handle to 24˚ (12 per side) at the tip, gives the blade a durable edge close to the handle and a thinner edge towards the tip. This gradual change in angle is, Rocksteads opinion, one of the best geometries for cutting.
The YXR7 steel, is a very tough tool steel, which reaches hardness levels of up to 65HRc. The exact hardness of the blade is tested individually and is visible on the certificate accompanying each knife.
Every YXR7 blade also features a Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating, which gives the blade a beautiful black sheen op top of the already impressive mirror finish. It also protects the blade from corrosion with an incredible hard layer.
The Chou is accompanied by its kydex sheath, as well as it's certificate. The total length is 120mm. The blade is 45mm and the knife weighs 57 grams. The Rockwell hardness is around 65Hrc (though it may vary slightly from model to model). The actual hardness is tested per individual knife and can be seen on its certificate.
