Besides the ROCKSTEAD UN and the ROCKSTEAD KON, the DON is the third large ROCKSTEAD fixed blade knife. As with all large fix knives, the blade is made of ZDP-189 laminated with VG-10. The intricately designed handle consists of ten ironwood rings interrupted by two rings of artificial opal. These in turn are framed by narrow silver rings and further enhance the look of the handle. The end cap of the RFOCKSTEAD DON is made of titanium. The sheath of the DON has a friction-based "lock system" and is made of wood micarta.
