If you are looking for the best of the best in terms of the ability to take and retain even a highly polished edge, then you need to really look no further than Aogami Super Steel.
Aogami Super Steel, or AS, is steel that is composed of a high percentage of carbon; chrome which increases the hardness of the blade along with overall toughness and corrosion resistance; manganese, which adds to the further wear resistance; molybdenum which helps in maintaining the steel's strength during heating; phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, tungsten and vanadium. The last ingredients further add to the steelís overall strength and wear resistance.
We have our Richmond AS Laser knives constructed using the san-mai method of cladding. In this case a softer stainless steel is used to encase the hard AS steel which protects it from damage and corrosion. The AS hagane is hardened to 63 HRC which gives the blade the ability to take and hold a super sharp edge.
The Richmond Laser AS gyuto is a very light and nimble knife. The profile is fairly flat with a nice round belly towards the very fine tip. Fit and finish are first rate. The handle is fabricated by one of our favorite woodworkers, Isaiah Schroeder, and is made with wenge and tiger maple ferrule.
Weight: 5.4 ounces

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.
