We received so many requests to do the Richmond Addict with a western handle that we just had to oblige. So here it is. The Richmond Artifex Extra Tall Gyuto 240mm. A classic Richmond Gyuto with the nice tall profile many of you love.

The knife measures 240mm along the blade and it has an impressive 55mm of depth at the base. Like the other gyutos in the Artifex line, it is made from AEB-L stainless steel hardened to 60-61 HRC. The blade has a typical Richmond style flat spot turning into a nice final curve before the thin tip. The edge is gound 50/50 at about 15 degrees each side.

The knife comes with a well made, nicely rounded G10 composite handle. Because the knife does not have a traditional bolster the handle feels like a Western-Japanese hybrid. So itís a great choice for both pinch and racket style grips. The fit and finish are really first rate especially considering its low price.

Get them while you can. Limited quantities available.

    The handle is comfortable to me, the tall blade is a luxury and the price is comparably favorable.

    This is a very good workhorse knife. The steel is low maintenance and holds an edge very well and the profile is okay (I do prefer the tip a bit lower than on this one, but it's not bad). I like the extra height on this for stability through large squash. If you're coming from Dexter Russell or Forschners, you'll appreciate the height. They slightly rounded the spine and choil, which is a plus. Only problem is it is not the easiest to sharpen. I got it with the initial finish sharpening and that was unimpressive. I was able to get it sharper than that, but it took more work than my carbon steel knives.

    This knife is a laser, super sharp out of the box and so thin yet very strong steel. HIghly recommend it.

    Great service, here in two days.

    Knife is very tall as would be expected, still quite light feeling in the hand. Was preparing to sharpen it out of the box, but then popped a row of arm hair off with the existing edge and decided to keep it for a while.
    I am very impressed.
