The Richmond Artifex line of kitchen knives have been designed and constructed with the professional line cook in mind. The name Artifex is latin for artisan or worker, and we think that this line of stainless steel knives will be the perfect choice for professionals that need a great blade which is tough, versatile and keenly priced. These are high performing knives with durability and ease of maintenance built in.
The Richmond Artifex 80mm Paring Knife is a perfect tool for those small chopping jobs as well as the intricate work entailed in the preparation of garnishes and art food. It is made from AEB-L mono construction stainless steel. The knife will take a very keen edge just like the best carbon steels, yet you don't have to worry about rusting. It has a thin profile and a nice curve to the belly. The blade is ground 50/50, so itís suitable for all users, right or left handed.
The handle is made from black linen micarta. A virtually indestructible material that is light weight and easy to hold. We priced this knife aggressively so line cooks, knife enthusiasts and students could afford it.

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.
