Richardson Sheffield have never rested on their laurels nor expanded and diluted their product. They remain today, as always, completely focused on the development and creation of kitchen knives. The Kyu range is an intriguing synthesis of Western and Japanese style which has not only created very precise knives but also works of design gold. Each knife has a sweeping curve to it that almost makes you want to frame it. The Kyu collection has been very deliberately crafted with simple yet elegant Japanese aesthetics in mind. The flawless curve is purported to be based on the traditional Japanese bow and the Chrome Molybdenum Vanadiam stainless steel blade will certainly catch your eye. The light wood block is certainly understated which many people value in their kitchens; having a knife block that's all singing, all dancing can draw attention and make the kitchen looked unbalanced. This one is smooth and contemporary while retaining a smart overall look. The whole range of Richardson Sheffield Kyu knives are created with a full-tang ensuring crucial strength and resilience. Although most kitchen knives worth their salt have full-tang construction, it's still worth mentioning as if you forget to check that sort of detail you could end up making a big purchasing mistake. This range not only fit nicely in the hand, they also have a remarkably soft to touch handle. This makes intensive use easy and comfortable if not a genuine pleasure. A particularly notable knife in this set is the bread knife which cuts through bread like it's butter on a warm day. And if a bread knife cuts well you can bet the other knives are going to be wonderful slicers too. The 17.5cm Santoku knife has its iconic dimples along the blade which minimise friction and enable a slick fluidity while cutting.
