This is an easy maintenance knife that is an easy-to-use and cuts well. The handle is made from duralumin, which is light and  strong.This knife has a blade angle of 30 degrees near the half, and 24 degrees near the tip with one continuous, gradually reducing angle connecting them. The reducing blade angle is a product of Rockstead's continuing pursuit of superior sharpness. This knife is of preeminent sharpness. This is a durable knife with strong cutting capabilities that will last for a long time. The scales are attached by two screws, and so after cutting fish or wild game, the knife is easy to dismantle and clean.
The blade is convex on this both sides in the tradition of the highly praised Japanese sword. This shape is both sharp and strong, and can still slice cleanly through a sheet of paper even after 1,000 cuts through a hemp rope. Using this special blade shape is an excellent way of allowing an edge to be thick without sacificing any of its sharpness.

肥後"HIGO" in Japanese means "the old name of the "kyushu" district in Japan.
