    I'm interested in seeing how you like the laser. My last knife purchase was a nose to tail hunters style boning knife. I haven't gotten it yet and I have no idea when I will.

    I have the 240mm laser and love it. I am a devotee now of AEB-L and 13c26 steel. Easy to sharpen and holds the edge a long time. Gave one to an exec chef friend here, and it is in regular line duty and still sharp sharp sharp! workmanship on the laser is top notch. Really great performance for the $$.

    How does the grind compare to a Japanese "laser", e.g Yusuke, Konosuke, etc.

    It's made in Japan, probably a rebranded Konosuke or konosukes OEM.

    Just arrived in today's mail; a prototype gyuto in 1095 by Don Nguyen. Sharpened up nicely.

    I've got another 300 yanagi on the way. My sister currently has it in Hamilton, Ontario, and she's driving up next weekend. I'm quite excited -- it's my first ginsan blade and my first Suisin. I used my Masamoto white-2 yanagiba today and I'm curious what the Suisin looks and feels like. Pics when I get it.

    The handle has a pronounced taper, and is very narrow at the point where you pinch the blade. To me, it is quite comfortable. very much like Son's Dragonslayers.

    Earlier Richmonds were made in U.S. by Lamson. Did that change?

    Thanks! I'm pretty excited to have them.

    I'll have to figure out how to post full sized pics, as these little thumbnails don't do the knives (or Jon's pictures) justice.

    Actually, I ordered mine last year after seeing the one pictured on Jon's website now (the ferrule on mine being the only difference).

    The ******** laser and ******** damascus are made in japan. He also has an addict made in japan in HD steel by konosuke. The original addict in 154cm, the new addicts in cpm 152 & 52100, the remedy, the ultimatum, the artifex and the fanatic are all ground by lamson.
