Second generation knife that replaces the Richmond GT. Collaborative laser knife designed by Mark Richmond, Kosuke Kawamura. Made in Sakai. Here is a chance nice quality knife with excellent fit and finish.
We have the blade made in Japan by Fujiwara and then sent to an artisan shop in Sakai for grinding. Finally it's hand engraved and the handle is attached Tokyo style by Mr. Kawamura. It uses the same steel as the Fujiwara FKM line of knives called AUS-8. This is a stainless mono-steel blade which gives this knife a beautiful aesthetic simplicity and ensures your new knife will not discolor or rust. The heat treatment is done to HRC-59-60. Itís a light weight blade for the size with a fairly thin spine and a convex grind and a distal taper towards the thin tip. The knife has a good profile with a gentle belly to flat transition. The edge has a 50/50 grind on the edge and it comes with a very nice magnolia wood handle with buffalo horn ferrule.

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.
