We really like SRS-15 steel. It is mega hard, therefore holds a fine edge amazingly well. Combined with a very fine grain structure it feels absolutely silky when cutting. Some say that SRS15 feels clinical. Its stainless qualities mean you neednít worry about rusting or discoloring. This steel is also found in precision tools, dentist drills and surgical equipment.
Be prepared to be surprised by the outstanding out of the box edge on this very well made Gyuto. Bridging the gap between a classic western chef and a traditional Japanese Gyuto, the Richmond SRS-15 has a wonderful balance and light feel. It has an almost laser like flat grind. The spine is 2.8mm at the base and it morfs into a very nice distal taper along its entire length. The grind is extremely thin behind the edge.
The overall fit and finish are of a high standard. It has a simple but comfortable Pakka wood western style handle attached with 3 rivets and a stainless bolster. This gives the knife a perfect balance point right at the bolster.
The blade has hardness and resilience as good as any other, while its edge can be sharpened to a very steep angle. We can supply the knife with an optional saya. Just select it from the drop down box.
Great steel. I have owned the 240 gyuto for about two years,and the edge retention is amazing. All around great knives.
its a great buy especially since many makers do not use this rarer Powder Steel SGS15. I owned the Santoku 180mm of this and its a real cutter. -1 star for the factory feel and its a little hard which equals slow to sharpen but great balance and feel
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.
