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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
