    I haven't even watched the video yet, but I had to do a double take when I saw this posted by Dave!

    i liked the video. this guy cracked me up in his last youtube vid about kens stones, but here he gives a calm, well explained breakdown of why the m390 artifex is an underachiever.

    This guy is the Scorsese of hand-knife monologues.
    What does he really look like?
    It's killing me!

    Sounds like the knives have really improved.

    So disappointing that these are being pushed on young cooks as inexpensive quality knives when they suck this bad. It aggravates me.

    Yeah, from "horrible" aka the Original Richmond Addict to just "pretty bad" aka Richmond Artifex M390.

    Thanks for the video. Though I don't know if I can say I trust the reviewer as an expert (without learning a bit more), he certainly sounds convincing and as if he knows his stuff. I've waited through multiple iterations of Richmond's knives as the kinks are worked out; seems like it would be best to wait a bit longer.

    He is rather intriguing, and the dirty sweat pants with hole and flannel shirt just adds to the mystery a bit. I like the thoroughness of the review though. I trust him more than the legions of 'knifefans' who put up the glowing reviews without much thought at all.

    On that note, were the AEB-L Artifex knives any better? Or has anyone tried one out?
