Richmond Artifex II 210mm BD1N Gyuto! It's one of our best selling knives to line cooks around the country and it has unmatched edge retention for those of you in the industry that need an affordable knife that will hold its edge through long shifts. The Artifex line has always been the first stop for many users entering the world of Japanese kitchen knives.

So it is with some pride that we now introduce the new Richmond Artifex II knife line. Our first offering is a very useful and universally liked 210mm gyuto. The new Artifex knives continue the tradition of using tough materials that can cope with the daily routines found in the busiest kitchens. To this end, we have continued with the proven G-10 handles but now mated to a blade made from Carpenter BD1N stainless steel.

Heat treated to HRC 63, this steel will take a nice edge and hold it exceptionally well. It is also really easy to maintain. This is perfect for the demands of pro cooks who don't have the time to constantly sharpen or wipe down their knives during their shifts. Coupled to the virtually indestructible G-10 handle scales, these knives are nearly indestructible and will provide line chefs with a comfortable, long-lasting kitchen cutter at a really attractive price.

    5  Daughterís first chef knife, August 16, 2020
    Posted By: Jay werkhaven - verified customer

    My daughter has grown up in the kitchen using the good knives, so when she got her first apartment at college, she needed a first knife. This is more than a first knife. Shipping was fast. Shaving sharp out of the box. A laser thin knife. Processes food quickly and smoothly. Very nice. Havenít had to sharpen it yet. I should mention that a comparable knife with the same steel from a company whose folding knives have a trademark hole in them cost almost 4 times as much. This is a fantastic deal.

    I'm not a chef, just like to cook. A chef friend recommended this to me as a great everyday knife. He's not wrong!

    Received promptly as usual (thanks CKTG crew!). Very impressed! Lotta bang for the buck IMO. Sharpened up easily and took a nice edge. Only had it a few weeks but the edge is holding up well. Fit and finish were good and I find it a comfortable knife to use.

    This thing is gorgeous! The G-10 handle is breathtaking. I'm new to Japanese knives but this thing is almost too pretty to be a workhorse. I took it to the stone out of the box even though it most likely didn't need it. It was hair-shaving sharp with King 1200 and 6000, mainly stropping. I want to use the crap out of this knife but I also want it to sit pretty in my knife bag.

    I got this knife on a recommendation of a chef friend. He said it was his favorite utilitarian blade. That was good enough for me. It's been a great knife and we think that for the cost it is tough to beat. Highly recommend!

    I have had this for about 6 months or so. The bad- the handle is a little bit uncomfortable. The belly starts a bit too early. But for $75, these are incredibly easy to overlook. I do not work this in hand for more that 30 minutes. And there are usually breaks in that time period, so that handle might be a problem for one doing nothing but cutting. The Good, everything else. For me, I am very happy with this. In fact, I just posted on a different website that I thot that this was a vastly superior tool to one that they were hoping to sell with the same steel, but without any specs and some poor reviews.

    First, these people sell a lot of great knives. Secondly, they are easy to work with. I inadvertently order a knife that was larger than I want. When I called, I actually spoke with the boss who canceled the order, no questions asked. I had a chef knife of his design in AEL-B that someone evidently liked a lot. I wanted to replace it and was curious about BD1N steel. So I picked one up. There must have been some promotion going on because I got a nice 9-10" bread knife thrown in free.

    Bought this knife to endure the rigors of a kitchen full of knife abusers who constantly use my knife when I'm not looking. Has survived several drops on tile floor, has been through several cases of chicken butchery and this thing is perfect. Not too hard to sharpen either and holds an aggressive edge. The only thing i did was sand down the somewhat squared corners of the handle a bit and its amazing now.

    I take this knife to work daily and it's an amazing deal. The edge lasts longer than my $250 Miyabi! Great deal.

    I use this knife at work daily and it holds an edge better than anything in my kit. Great deal on excellent steel.
