Mark,

The Richmond Hamon Blue #1 110mm Petty caught my eye. Unfortunately there is precious little on the website which properly describes it. My questions are;
* What is the thickness at the spine?
* What grind are we talking? Is that a true shinogi line? The website states that the Suji/Gyuto of the same line is like a two sided yanagi. Same here or more along the lines of a mini gyuto?
* I'm guessing that the hamon is not a true hamon but one manufactured in? (Still looks great!)

Also, I found Shawn's video of the Richmond Aogami Super Laser 120mm Petty informative. My question there is, will the handle be the reddish bubinga/wenge as shown in the picture or the darker rosewood/ebony as shown in the video?

Thanks,

Rick

The "Hamon" name of the series refers to the cladding itself, not a true temper line. The cladding was shaped in a way to have that wavy pattern, where a true Hamon is a line that denotes a transition between hard and soft steel, like on the Swords and Honyaki knives that have their spine left soft and the rest of the knife fully hardened.

For the Laser AS handles, Mark has a wood worker that does the handles for him. Sometimes there are options as to what handle; it has been a wenge ferrule and either Bubinga or PurpleHeart on the AS Lasers IIRC. Mark may be able to have his woodworker make up a different handle if you ask!

Sorry I forgot about this.

Stats were put on the site last week. I just shot the video. I'll upload it and post it there shortly as well as here.

And the Oscar goes to...

Thanks Mark, I really appreciate that. Your customer service is second to none. Using the laptop as you did was also an excellent solution to what was discussed on another thread.

Although it seems really thick at the spine I think I might chance this knive on uniqueness alone. I'll give it to Mary Lu as 'her' paring knife because right now she doesn't touch the JKs and she needs to cowboy up. And I might even get some jalapeno poppers out of it!

Cheers,

Rick
