I am interested in buying a Richmond knife as a wedding gift for a good buddy of mine I went to Culinary school with. He's a big guy with monster hands and prefers tall knives. Which of these do you think he'd like?

Also, it seems like most of the sayas on your website are out of stock, are you expecting more? Does Joshua make most of them for you?

Thanks,
Tim

The Addict is a fun knife to use but the Aogami super laser is a better knife. At least in terms of performance.

This stainless laser is really good and I would consider this one as a good gift:

I love the AS Laser in 240mm!! Great knife! I have an Addict in 52100 as well, but I prefer the Laser in AS a bit more for most foods.

If you think he's after a thin knife, the Laser in AEBL is a great knife.

If tall is more important than laser the Addict in AEB-L is very tall @55mm at the heel.

This isn't going to make it any easier, but...

Richmond Ultimatum M390, and Ultimatum 52100.

The Ultimatum's blade-forward weight distribution takes some getting used to, but once you do it's beyond amazing. It's got a great profile, takes a great edge, and is robust enough to use for any normal prep short of hacking through bones. It's a knife you don't need to put down. I rate mine as high as my Kono HD -- although of course, they're very different.

Can't say for sure, but it's possible that the weight and balance (hah!) suit big hands better than small because we the large handed can push our pinch further forward.

I'm a carbon kinda guy, and mine is a 52100. Don't get me started on how much I like the alloy because it's a little too embarrassing when everyone's sober. On the other hand, I understand the M390 can go for pretty much forever from sharpening to sharpening -- which is important to some people.
