The Richmond Artifex is my fourth knife and is an all-purpose chef knife/ gyuto that measures 240mm or about 9.5" inches on the blade. The name Artifex is Latin for artisan or worker and I designed the knife specifically for people in the food service industry that need a great blade that is tough, versatile and uses world class steel called AEB-L. AEB-L (also called 13C26) steel 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 handle made of G-10 with a classic 2 rivet design. The handle is very stable and is designed to give you years of worry free use. Finally, this knife is made right here in the United States 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. We also added the option of hand finish sharpening that you can choose using the drop down box near the order button. I hope you enjoy my newest knife. Kind Regards, Mark Richmond.

    After probably being on of the first to own and sharpen several of these I have come to the conclusion that this is a laser in sheeps clothing,ultra thin I put the optional parer tip on mine and this is one of if not the best mark has come out with I would put it head to head with the laser and I think it would be a tie. I made dinner and cut through a bag of carrots,potatoes,celery,and a rare linen broil after that and it went through better than some of the 500 dollar knive I own. That’s all this knife was missing was the length. At this price if you don’t buy it your a fool and I am not scared to say it. Peace

    I got this knife two days before the delivery date. Awesome. Got really excited to I immediately went out and got a bunch of produce to prep for dinner. Thought the knife edge finish was beautiful. After the first couple of cuts I had a hesitant feeling. Then after about 10 bls of produce,I wished I wished I could take the feeling back. The Knife was and is Brilliant (period)

    The filling of my order was prompt as usual. The knife was impressive in appearance and fit my large hand quite well. It was sharp right out of the box and has easily handled every task that I have attempted with it. I have several chefs knives,but I now reach for this knife every time. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone who would ask.

    Just got my Knife. Out of the box first use,Sliced one tomato,worked fine. 2nd use,tried to slice a 2nd tomato,struggled to break the skin of the tomato and had a hard time with thin clean slices. Kinda dissapointed because I paid an extra $15 for Finished Sharpening. I still like the knife,long thin blade,very light and comfortable in my hand,but...Very dissapointed with the edge. Will I ever make another purchase? Yes! but with-out paying an extra $15 for the "Finish Sharpening" Edge"

    Incredibly sharp. A great deal. The best quality and the best price.

    this knife has great balance and sharpens like a dream. Comes out of the box with a very decent edge,but gets amazingly sharp with a few strokes on the stone. Mine had a touch of over grind at the heal,took a couple extra minutes to take out,not a big deal. overall F&F is amazing,let alone at this price point.

    I really dig this knife. Iím a home cook and was looking for a solid,affordable knife. After doing some research I settled on this and Iím glad I did.

    The fit and finish on the knife are great out of the box. The standard edge isnít too bad,either.

    It also takes an edge very easily and holds it very well. I also bought the 10íí ceramic steel which I highly recommend to keep this blade in good shape between sharpenings.
