The Moritaka Supreme 210mm Kiritsuke is another instance where the maker has applied 50/50 geometry to a traditional Japanese pattern in order to heighten versatility and ease of use, and create an ambidextrous profile. Kiritsukes may lack some of the versatility of a gyuto, but the sword tip certainly makes up for some of that and how prodigious this pattern is for push and pull cutting make it a favorite addition to many cooksí blocks. If you are interested in the pattern, but have limited board space, this knife is a particularly good selection as there are relatively few kiritsukes that come in below 240 mm.
The core steel in the Moritaka Supreme line is a wonderfully treated Aogami Super which takes and holds a wicked edge. This high end carbon steel is clad with softer iron and produced with a rustic kurouchi finish. While still reactive, this finish aids in corrosion resistance. Hand-forging blades for over 700 years, Moritaka Hamono offers some of the more unique knives on our site at an incredible value given the performance, fit and finish, premium steel, and handmade nature of the knives.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
