Richmond is our in-house brand of knives. They are custom made for us by some of the best blacksmiths in Japan. They have a san-mai construction utilizing Aogami (Blue) Super as the core with a stainless steel cladding. San-mai generally refers to knives with the hard steel hagane forming the blade's edge and the iron/stainless forming a jacket on both sides. In stainless versions, this offers a practical and visible advantage of a superb cutting edge of modern Japanese knife steel with a corrosion resistant exterior.
Not super tall for a petty, this lovely knife is the perfect tool for many cutting jobs in the kitchen. The nicely executed grind starts at the line of the katsumi finish. It is fairly sharp out of the box but a quick trip to your favorite fine stone will give the blade a screaming sharp edge. The use of AS steel, heat treated to 63 HRC, will ensure that it stays that way through protracted use.
The 150mm petty comes with an attractive handle made from Wenge with a contrasting Maple ferrule.
Blade length: 150mm
Total length: 281mm
Spine thickness at base: 2.2mm
Blade height at heel: 29.5mm
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.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
