The Rockstead Kon is a fully functional, full tang, fixed blade knife. Utilizing Rockstead's 'Honzukuri' blade shape, this knife is an impressive piece to use, despite it's beautiful looks. The blade is made from ZDP189 powder metallurgic stainless steel, clad in VG10 stainless steel. Rockstead gets the ZDP189 to a Rockwell hardness of around 67HRc through the use of proprietary machines and nanontechnology (though the exact hardness is noted on the certificate, as Rockstead tests each knife individually).
The handle, as well as the sheath are made from wood micarta.
Not only the sharpness, but also the edge retention is unlike anything you've seen before. Rockstead has demonstrated this knife in numerous impressive cutting tests, including pushing the knife though a phone book like butter. There was also a test in which they cut tough, multi-strand Manilla rope 780 times. When they tested the edge afterwards, it was relatively uneffected. Despite all this, Rockstead advises against chopping with this knife. It is best suited for cutting tasks.
The total lenght of the Rockstead Kon is 254mm. The blade is 133mm, with a thickness of 5.2mm. The knife weighs a total of 236 grams and the sheath weighs 148 grams.
