The Richmond Laser AEB-L 210mm Gyuto is the epitome of a laser knife. Super thin, very light and razor sharp. This is a knife that will redefine your expectations of what a chef knife can do.
Built from AEB-L stainless steel, the blade is ground with a really thin edge which results in a knife that simply falls through produce with little or no wedging. The super fine grain structure of AEB-L gives rise to a blade that has excellent toughness, edge retention, workability, ease of sharpening, and ease of polishing. These attributes perfectly sum up the Richmond Laser Gyuto.
As AEB-L is a stainless steel there is little maintenance required to keep the knife looking and performing at its peak. The lovely blade is attached to a semi custom handle made from Bubinga wood with a Wenge ferrule. This combination affords the knife with a balance point just at about the pinch grip area. The slightly curved profile will please both rocking and push cutters alike. Care should be taken with harder items such as squash and it should not be used on frozen produce. Aside from these issues, this is a knife you have to experience if you are looking for a slicing and dicing superstar.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
