Special Note:

Please note that all Rock Creek knives have been discontinued from production; don’t miss your chance of owning this rare knife! This is a knife that can be used for hunting (gutting, skinning) yet, is slim enough to fit comfortably in your pocket as an alternative to carrying it on your belt with the clip. Once you see and feel this knife, you will quickly recognize quality. If feels solid yet, isn't so heavy (only 5 oz) that it will deter you from carrying it around, whether you're on a hunt, or in camp, or in your workshop.

    About Rock Creek Knives by Hanwei

    Hanwei, a company that is widely acknowledged for producing first-class swords, is operated by Mr. Chen Chao-Po, also famously known by his alias, Paul Chen. The company was originally founded in Taiwan in the early 90's and is now distributed in the USA by Cas Iberia that's recently purchased by Mr. Chen. Hanwei's Samurai swords are currently viewed as contemporary pieces which give martial artists and collectors a unique opportunity of owning a fine, quality sword.


    Although Hanwei is best known for their line of well-made historic swords, they've also been doing fixed blade knives including a historical Bowie line, and line of military knives. New to Hanwei is their Rock Creek line of knives. The Rock Creek line moves Hanwei from a purveyor of fine historical and collectors blades to a line designed for use by hunters, campers, and outdoorsmen. Rock Creek knives are made to the same incredible standards as the rest of the Hanwei/Paul Chen line. All of these knives are made in China by Hanwei out of the finest materials and have the utmost attention to detail.


    Rock Creek knives feature Hanwei's proprietary forged HWS-1 steel. The HWS-1 steel is a martensitic stainless, high carbon; high silicon forging steel heat treated to a 58-60 HRc and provides good corrosion resistance and edge retention but is designed to be easy to sharpen, unlike some high-end specialty alloys. Overall, Rock Creek line of knives has a solid quality build, and old world style charm to them not seen in many knives today.


    The Difference in the Quality of Rock Creek Knives

    Rock Creek Knives is a handmade collection of fixed-blade hunting, utility knives, and lock-back folders manufactured by Hanwei.


    Hanwei, because of the scarcity of clean high-alloy cutlery steels from domestic suppliers, is melting its own steels and producing superior blade materials with excellent edge-holding and toughness characteristics. Additionally, trading on its sword making capabilities, Hanwei is able to forge knife blades, a quality feature now available only from custom makers and semi-custom manufacturers in the commercial sporting knife market."


    The two types of knives produce by Rock Creek:

    • Fixed Blades -The current 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 handle feature full tapered tangs. The guards and pommels are investment cast in stainless steel. The hand-stitched sheaths are 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.
    • Folders - The current folder series comprises twelve lock-back models. The blades are forged in either HWS-1K or HWS-2K, another high-alloy steel proprietary to Hanwei, formulated for toughness, abrasion resistance (edge-holding) and corrosion resistance. The blades are hollow ground for easy edge maintenance and ground from 1/8" stock. The frames are built in solid stainless steel with various handle treatments. Six models feature removable pocket clips of Hanwei's own design and four have bailed for belt-clip attachment. An innovative feature on certain models is the use of Hanwei's electroformed engraving. Handle materials are available in a choice of rosewood, stabilized leather, and mother-of-pearl/abalone.

    Hanwei distributes some of the highest quality historical reproductions available. The Rock Creek knives they supply are in great demand by collectors. Holding one of these knives is like holding a piece of history in your hands.
