Tim Johnson has done a lovely custom job on this Addict. He has thinned and sharpened the blade and added a beautiful curly walnut and the ferrule is Classic Mokume M3 material.
Here is the popular Richmond Addict 2 in AEB-L stainless steel! Measures 240mm and is nice and tall. AEB-L (which is my favorite stainless steel on the market for kitchen knives) was designed for razors, which need corrosion resistance, high hardness and very acute edges. Once you try a knife that is made with AEB-L you will see why it is coveted by knife enthusiasts and professionals. The knife will take a very keen edge just like the best carbon steels yet you don't have to worry about rusting. You will also find much better sharpening properties since AEB-L is less prone to produce wire edges that are so common when you sharpen most high end Japanese kitchen knives. We hardened this steel to 60.5-61 for the ideal hardness and toughness.
