With the 敬 KEI, ROCKSTEAD has designed a remarkably convenient and versatile small sheath knife. With a blade length of 90 mm, it weighs just 103 g and is therefore extremely light. The carefully designed handle construction offers various different positions for the fingers of the gripping hand. For example, the side thumb moulds at the front make it easier to grip the knife when making horizontal cuts.
The 敬 KEI leather sheath is the smaller version of the sheath created for the earlier models 仁 JIN and 礼 REI. However, ROCKSTEAD has added another detail: inside there is now a second sheath made of Kydex. On the one hand, this prevents the leather being damaged when the knife is sheathed, but it also ensures that the 敬 KEI slips securely into the sheath since, like that of the 長 CHOU, it is perfectly tailored to the blade shape.
Variation: 敬 KEI-ZDP
