The Richmond Laser AS Gyuto 210mm is a fantastic knife suited for almost all of your cutting and chopping needs. Itís small enough for fine detail work and processing but big enough for tackling all but the largest of ingredients. The laser like size and weight give this knife a quick and nimble feel. Its small thin tip simply flies through food, while its fairly flat belly shape make it a great choice for both rockers and push cutters.
It boasts a nicely finished spine with a slight distal taper towards the tip.
It is a great looking blade but not in a bling kind of way. The really nice grind is accentuated by the application of a sand blasted artificial shinogi line leading to a very thin edge.
The Richmond Laser AS line features the wonderful Aogami Blue Super steel. Renowned for its ability to take on a screaming sharp edge and hold that sharpness through extended use. This knife has a san-mai construction using a softer stainless steel as the jigane so only the edge is reactive. This makes the knife a breeze to maintain compared to other high carbon types.
The handle is made by one of our favorite woodworkers, Isaiah Schroeder, and is made with tiger maple and a wenge ferrule. There is an optional saya available for protection and storage.
Blade length: 216mm
Total length: 354mm
Spine thickness: 3mm
Blade height: 46.84mm

Un cuchillo excelente muy recomendado vale la pena el precio.
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.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
