The Richmond GT Artifex Wa-Gyuto is a nice introduction to mono steel construction and Japanese knives in general. The GT Artifex is made in Japan by Fujiwara especially for Richmond Artifex. It uses the same steel as the Fujiwara FKM line of knives called AUS-8. This is a stainless mono-steel blade which gives this knife a beautiful aesthetic simplicity and ensures your new knife will not discolor or rust. It is hardened to 58-59 HRC. So itís a bit on the soft side but that makes it a great place to start your journey into Japanese knives.

The GT Wa-Gyuto is very light for a knife of this size. This is due to itís thin overall grind which stays very thin quite high up the blade. It has a very generous height of almost 50mm. So, lots of finger clearance for larger hands.

Speaking of large hands, the knife has a generous size handle made from yew with a buffalo horn ferule. It is a classic octagonal shaped Wa style handle. It features nicely curved choil with good fit and finish. There is an almost continuous curve to the blade with virtually no flat spot.

The Richmond GT Artifex is a really well built wa gyuto that is aggressively priced. We think this knife is unbeatable in its class.
