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.
I designed this knife to be thin with a nice sized octagonal handle made out of figured maple with a wenge ferrule, done here in Madison Wisconsin by our woodworker and friend Isaiah Schroeder. The blade is also made in the USA with our partner Lamson And Goodnow. The factory edge grind is 50/50 at about 15 degrees on each side. We priced this knife aggressively so line cooks, knife enthusiasts and students could afford it. I hope you enjoy my newest knife. Kind Regards, Mark Richmond.
