Richmond Kohetsu Aogami Super 240mm Gyuto. Kohetsu is a name that loosely translates to "bring happiness and pleasure" or just "be happy".

Kohetsu knives are about bringing you the best cutting performance using the top steels on the market with impecable heat treatment and nice, thin grinds at an affordable price. This line has taken us over a year to develop and we think the effort has been worth it. Once you try a Kohetsu we hope it brings you years of cutting pleasure.
Really enjoying this new knife. It is quite sharp and glides almost effortlessly through all the veg I could find in the kitchen. The only problem I have now is to figure out what I am going to do with everything I have already chopped up.
Been flying through prep with this knife all week. Its the perfect size at 240mm,and handles like a much smaller knife.

This is a very good knife for the money. It is certainly not a cheap knife.
The out of the box edge is very good. The handle is well done.
Anybody considering an 8 inch chefs knife should consider this one because it’s light weight and length is not exactly bulky.
I don’t feel like this knife is much larger than my 8 inch Shun classic.
It will be very difficult to find a stainless clad knife made of this type of steel for under 200$.
It can be overwhelming looking at taking the plunge into quality Japanese knifes.
At it’s price point I do not feel like I bought an entry level product.
If you have skepticism about house branded products from Mr. Richmond,this would be a great ice breaker.
Thanks to Mr Richmond for making this knife possible.
A big thanks to Mrs Richmond for shipping fast.
II do feel like I got a high end knife at a competitive price point.
Once again I certainly do not feel like I bought an entry level product.
I’ve been using this for about 6 weeks. Its my go to in the mornings for prep. Its fast,keeps a great edge and really feels good in your hands.
A great knife love it the patina looks awesome and its ultra sharp after i took it on the stone and it stays that way. the service from cktg was excellent thank you

It’s a great knife. The reason why I give 3 stars is because I got mine crooked,the blade is not exactly in the center of the handle,I just realized this after I use it.
I’ve bought this knife as a gift to myself for my birthday,and I can say that I’m really impressed!The F&F of the knife is very good,everything is well rounded and the patina that will form makes the knife still more beautiful! The OOTB sharp wasn’t actually great,but not a big deal,because the knife is very easy to sharpen (I’m still a noob) and the edge retention is out of this world. I recomend it to everyone that wants a really good wa-gyuto,but don’t have the budget to buy more traditional knifes( By the way,something better that this will cost at least 130 more dollars).
Thank you Mark for the help and to make this knife possible!
