Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Outstanding. This piece is my introduction into Rockstead knives. A bit steep, but I took the plunge based on the all of the hype. doesn't disappoint. Perfection in every area, especially blade sharpness. I have full customs that aren't this good. And to agree with one reviewer, it is so good that I would buy it again at the same price. In fact, I'm selling off some other items so I can get one of their folders. And I'll definitely being buying from Knifecenter. This was also my first time to buy from here. Very pleased with everything so far. Thanks!

So good I would buy another one, even at the price!
Spectacular small knife. Even at the price of rockstead knives, the materials and quality make this knife genuinely worth the price for a blade that is sharp, stays sharp, and performs much better than it's diminutive size.
