I only sold the Richmond because I got a Kohetsu (Started with the Kohetsu santoku and loved it)
I don't fault you for the Richmond, it's plain, functional and just great knife :D

Just be mind of how you press into the blade. I use the Richmond Kohetsu with a thin edge...I sometimes use it to slice through hard cheeses and it doesn't chip. The limitations seem to be solid frozen blocks of meat :)


The White #2 of the Yuki is not easy to sharpen?

White #2 is very easy to sharpen, easier than AS but neither is difficult.

Plain? A little oil n flitz and she is a sparkling beauty ;)

I wavered between the same 2 knives. Yuki has more personality, AS laser has the better handle. I ended up with the AS laser.

I own both actually, 240 AS laser and a 270 yuki. They are both thin behind the edge, the yuki is almost as thin as the laser. The yuki has more character as everyone has said and I think an attractive handle. I believe the yuki will have a larger handle than the laser and the white #2 is easier to sharpen but will not keep the edge as long.Being it's thicker the yuki will of course weight a little more.

Yep, no delaying around here. Things get snatched up quickly. I'm sure they will be back in stock in two weeks(forum joke) :mrgreen:

I haven't seen a Richmond personally, so.... I'm starting to get a number from the Masakage line of knives (read as a fan of). I was looking to pick up the Yuki when I was shopping for my gyuto, but somehow the Koishi was able to cut the coin out of my pocket :)
Sometimes it comes down to a coin toss. You'll be happy either way.
good luck

The Laser is lighter, AS steel, both are the same height.
I think the Laser handle is better, handmade by Isiah Shroder, maple and wenge, it's octaganol, not oval.
Both knives have good steel, each has its pluses and minuses.
I guess it all comes down to what matters the most to you.
