Richmond Addict SLD: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/koadhd24wa.html

What do we know about this? It is listed in New Arrivals, but already has vids and reviews.

Is it the same as a previous Kono Addict?
What do we know about SLD?/How does it compare to the HD steel?
How does the grind, fit-and-finish compare to the Kono HD, HH, Wt2 lineups?
I am pondering a Kono addition to the collection, could this be a stand in?

Thanks all

I just put this up. It's made by konosuke for me so it's the same knife witht he same grinds as the HD one it replaces but it's made with SLD steel. SLD is nice semi stainless steel and I was able to get the prices down on these so they're $130 less using this steel compared to HD. It should be popular.

Is SLD similar to the SKD Kono uses in Tsuchime series? Thanks!

Bought. All the features I wanted for under $190, resistance is futile.

Yes, but with a higher carbon content - for the better it is.

Sharpens easy, presents a very, very keen edge with amazing edge retention.

That is @ 64 Rc.

I have 2 units by Yoshikane - truly magnificent.
