Richmond Aogami Super Series

Wed Dec 19, 2012 5:49 pm

Mark,

After seeing a lot of knives I've decided that I want to buy a 240 gyuto and a 120mm petty, I was thinking about the hiromoto knives, but then I saw that your brand is expand its line to use aogami super steel, I'm not in a hurry to buy them, but when are your knives arriving? Do you intend to give your costumers a sneak peek on them? I'm excited to see them. I hope their F&F is better than the hiromotos and still with a nice price.

Hi Lucas,

Thanks for asking about these. I actually made the final confirmation yesterday for this line and they are starting production. It's going to take a few months but we are getting the following knives all done with magnolia wood octagonal handles and buffalo horn ferrules. The steel is Aogami Super on the core and it will be clad with stainless steel. Here's what is on order now:
120 petty
150mm Petty
150mm Honesuk
165mm Nakiri
210mm & 240mm Gyuto
180mm Santoku
270mm Gyuto
270mm Sujihiki

The company I ordered from needed to do large quantities for them to accept my order so this will be a huge order for us. They will ship me them by knife type as they are produced. The order is for over a thousand knives.... Gulp....
