Thanks for all the kind words guys, I will continue trying to do my best with these videos. Getting to try so many great knives makes it hard to put things in to perspective sometimes, so comparing them to one another might be the best way to show the differences.
The Goko is heavier in both weight and slightly thicker behind the edge than the Laser. It has a bigger handle also. The finish is what I'd call "rustic-refined" (I just made that up) (Think of Kanehiro and Takeda) where it's the kurouchi finish, but it's the hardened clay version that is much more durable, and the overall Fit and finish of the knife is nice, whereas cheaper kurouchi knives have a rougher fit and finish. The steel sharpens faster than the Richmond Laser and polishes a little easier.
The Richmond Laser is lighter in weight and thinner behind the edge, although spine thickness of both are very close. It has a smaller handle that is more polished. The fit and finish is refined, everything is polished. Both knives are stainless clad. The Aogami Super in this knife takes a little longer to sharpen, but not enough to warrant choosing a blade over it.
Basically, they both perform great, awesome cutters, with the edge going to the Richmond. The Goko is a more substantial knife, and is a totally different look and feel.
Goko is a light-heavyweight that cuts like a middle weight, and the Laser is a light-middle weight that cuts like a light-weight. (if that makes any sense)
