Richmond Artifex Honesuki 165mm. 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. p>I designed this knife to be thin with a nice sized handle made of black linen micarta 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 80/20. We priced this knife aggressively so line cooks, knife enthusiasts and students could afford it.

    Honesuki- This knife is super sick. Tears through bones like a son of a gun. Looks amazing,and very comfortable handle. I had the knives professionally sharpened after receiving them,but they were quite sharp after receiving them. I would highly recommend this knife.

    Honestly an amazing buy. I fell in love with honesuki knives after using a fellow cooks tojiro. The factory edge wasn’t great,but after a slight re profiling it is incredible.

    Incredibly hard,strong thin edge,comfortable to use,and the best price possible.

    Great knife! This knife really demonstrates how the right knife for the job simplifies a task. I make chicken often,so I’m cutting up a whole chicken at least once a week. This knife is fantastic for that! It is sharp,sturdy and nimble. The tip shaping is fantastic for making quick cuts between joints and the knife slices the meat off the rib cage seamlessly. This knife is fantastic. Add in the (ridiculously) reasonable price and it is a true winner.
