The current Rock Creek fixed blade series encompasses nineteen models of hunters and utility/survival knives. All have forged blades in HWS-1K, a high-alloy steel proprietary to Hanwei, with an edge hardness of 58 - 60HRc and excellent corrosion resistance, edge-holding and ease of sharpening. The blade thickness is either 3/16" or 1/4", depending on blade length and the blades are flat or saber ground as appropriate. An aggressive thumb grip is provided on the back of each blade and finger grooves are provided at the choil of certain skinner/caper models for blade control. The tangs of knives with stacked-leather handles and full stag rolls are very substantial, terminating in a short thread at the pommel. Knives with stag scale handles feature full tapered tangs. The guards and pommels are investment cast in stainless steel.
The hand stitched sheathsare made in bark-tanned leather with stainless steel reinforcing at the wear points and are of either pouch-type or have strap-and-snap retainers.
