The ROCKSTEAD RYO-H-ZDP (DP) is another ROCKSTEAD gentleman's knife alongside the SHU model (SHU-C and SHU-CB) and the NEHAN.

With the HIGONOKAMI blade, ROCKSTEAD opted for a blade shape that is traditionally widespread in Japanese culture and is particularly well suited for many cutting tasks in everyday life. For example, it enables more comfortable sheathing on supports, as the knife can be guided almost horizontally when making precise cuts.

An outstanding feature of the RYO is the clip system developed by ROCKSTEAD ("concealed clip system"). The possibility of concealing the movable clip in the handle improves the hand position enormously when cutting. The elaborate, internal construction is extremely robust, ensures smooth movement of the clip and fixes it in its respective end positions. The slim design of the titanium handle scales, which taper in the middle, is reminiscent of the SHIN-Fumon produced in 2005, but appears much more elegant and harmonious in its lines. The handle scales of the ROCKSTEAD RYO-H-ZDP (DP) are coated with the special DLC coating "DLCP" (DLC-Prism). It is much thinner and harder than the usual DLC coating used by ROCKSTEAD.
