The UN is one of the premium models in the ROCKSTEAD Sheath Knife category. More than any other ROCKSTEAD knife, it is the manifestation of a combination of innovation and tradition. The perfectly formed blade of the UN represents the height of current technical feasibility in the manufacture of knife blades. The handle of the UN is manufactured specifically for the UN in a specialist workshop. It resembles a Japanese katana down to the finest details and is available in blue (TETSUKON), yellow (KINCHA), green (UGUISU) and red-brown (AZUKI). The elaborately constructed, very robust sheath of the DON has a friction-activated lock system and is manufactured from wood Micarta.
Note: The ROCKSTEAD model UN is a further development of the GI model. The shape of the blade, the mirror polish and the knife sheath have been further perfected. The handle of the UN can be swapped.
