Nehan, which translates to Nirvana, a Buddhist state of transcendence, was a model produced by Rockstead between 2007 and 2010. Now, they have re-released it with all their accumulated expertise and technology, refining and completing the Nehan into it’s superior form while staying true to the original design by Koji Hara. This specific model has Ebonite handle scales, which are often found in high end fountain pens. These are applied to a titanium frame and then the grooves are added. The grooves represent the folds in a Kimono. Meanwhile the thumb stud is designed after the shape of a flower.
The Nehan is an exquisite gentleman’s pocket knife and Rockstead has done everything to complement the look and use of it in such a manner. The knife is a accompanied by a beautiful leather sheath to carry it in, which can be carried on the belt, or simply in the pocket, while protecting the knife. The real mind-blowing detail about this knife is in its construction. The two handle scales are applied on top of the titanium from, but are fastened and bonded from within. That means that there are no visible screws, pins or bolts, otherwise ruining the peaceful design. The only visible piece of hardware is the Nehan’s button-lock mechanism. A simple, but effective way to disengage the blade after use. It’s very intuitive and a no-nonsense way to safely operate the knife.
The blade is made of ZDP189 blade steel, with a Rockwell hardness of about 67HRc, though the exact hardness can be found on the accompanying certificate, as Rockstead tests each knife individually. It is ground in their ‘Honzukuri’ style, meaning it’s a convex grind without a microbevel and the angle gradually flows from thick to thin (from handle to tip).
The knife has a full length of 147mm and the blade is 65mm, with a thickness of 2.5mm. The Nehan weighs only 58 grams.
