After cutting and chopping through dried bamboo and cutting through a manila rope 350 times, this blade is still able to slice cleanly through a sheet of paper. This knife has a blade angle of 30 degrees near the haft, and 24 degrees near the tip with one continuous, gradually reducing angle connecting them. This reducing blade angle is a product of Rockstead's continuing of superior sharpness. This knife is of preeminent sharpness. This is a durable knife with strong cutting capabilities that will last for a long time. One KOU is a little different in that it has an improved clip, improvement to the internal structure and an increase to the embellishments.

孝"KOU" in Japanese means "filial piety".
