The Richmond Laser Aogami line is made in Japan and these knives are san mai construction (clad) using stainless steel with high quality Aogami Super steel on the core. The knives are heat treated to HRC 62-63 and take a wicked edge. Edge retention is very good on these knives.
This knife is perfect! I have bought lots of knives from CKTG and this is the best so far. I love the shape,sharpness and the fact that I don’t have to worry about rust. This knife is similar in shape to my Moritaka petty,which I truly love,but also get tired of dealing with the rust issue. Very sharp,looks good,great shape and no rust. I will buy more when they are back in stock.
