Aogami Super, perfectly rendered, is found at the core of Moritaka Supreme knives. The treatment of these knives has the steel achieving a Rockwell Hardness of 64-64. The core steel is wrapped in reactive iron cladding; however, the kurouchi finish on these knives does an excellent job preventing corrosion. That said, these knives are fully reactive and should be kept dry and wiped down during use.

Moritaka draws on the companyís 700 years of experience producing hand forged blades to produce this 150mm honesuki, or poultry knife. The edges on this knife can be taken extremely steep and through high levels of refinement on the stones. Given the intended purpose, it may be worth keeping the makerís bevel angle in place to avoid chipping when working through poultry joints. We highly recommend this knife for left handed users as Moritaka has ground the blade symmetrically which is not the case with most honesukis you will find. Please note as of May 15th, 2015 these knives now have a ho wood octagonal handle with buffalo horn ferrule. The video on the page is not current. The photos are current.

    3  Some great, some not so great, December 5, 2015

    My wife purchased this for me for a present and while I have a number of issues with the one I received I do think it's worth keeping and trying to fix. Love the feel, great handle and balance and I am a huge fan of AS steel. The problems however really have me questioning any Moritaka again. The blade has several pits in the finish where food or slurry from a stone will get in and it's a pain to get out, wiping wont do it. The biggest problem in my opinion is when you look at the grind at the heel you can clearly see it is not even, really not even close. When examining the lamination lines for the core an cladding one side has approx. .3" of AS exposed and the opposite has maybe .1" and the last quarter inch of the heel on the short side has none, the cladding goes all the way to the edge. As I said, I believe it worth fixing and have spent a few hours working it down on a 220 pink brick ( coarsest stone I own ) and have been able to get the core exposed for the entire length of the blade now, not a lot of it, but it is exposed and it takes a very sharp edge. Still with all the problems it is a good knife and will see plenty of work, just required more work than I believe a knife at this level should need to be functional. As far as CKTG as a company, A++, great, fast service and I'll continue to buy here. PS, Mark, to many out of stocks, Xmas is coming and I need (Ok, want) more knives, Thanks.

    It took me a while to pick out which Honesuki I wanted. I was looking for a well priced one that I would happy with. I chose this one based on the core steel and octagonal handle which I find better than other handle types. This knife has not let me down. Like others have said it needs a little work out of the box I sharpened on a 4k then 8 stone. Finished on a strop loaded with diamond spray. This knife is one i couldn't live without.

    OOTB - Not very sharp, really needed a lot of work starting at a 1000g stone, but considering the steel it became very very sharp after some work, no scratches or warps or anything, just perfect OOTB except for sharpness.

    Fit and Feel: Great classic handle, beautiful look to it, very nice pointy tip, a lot heavier than I thought it would be because of the thickness of the steel. But I like some weight when I am boning ;-)

    Edge Retention is good

    Sharpness is Fantastic

    I use this knife for breaking down Lamb primarily (Legs and Shoulders) but it works amazing for chicken, beef and small fish.

    Overall a beautiful knife with lots of use and great steel.

    It's taking a bit for this knife to grow on me, though to be honest I bought it to replace a European boning knife. This knife does very well boning out chickens, which is what it is designed to do. Not so good at removing silcerskin from beef though. It takes a good edge, but needs a lot more work than my Takeda Guyuto and won't get nearly as sharp. great fit and finish and a beautiful handle. Get one if you are boning out a lot of poultry.

    This my first experience with a Honesuki. Bought it to use mainly on chickens - it does a great and quick job - looking for more chickens. Like all Moritakas is very high quality, nice and sharp, and holds its edge very well. Great specialty knife.

    I have used this knife for everything from chickens to racks of lamb. It performs beautifully and holds a fantastic edge. This is a wonderful knife to work with.
