Moritaka Cutlery is a traditional knife making company that has a very long and storied history. The Moritaka family has been making knives for hundreds of years and kitchen knives are now its primary pursuit.
The knives we sell by Moritaka cutlery are their top of the line knives made from Aogami Super Steel with a RC Hardness of 64-65. Aogami Super Steel is prized for its ability to take a very steep, sharp edge. These knives are reactive and will oxidize and rust if not properly cared for. Simply drying the knife after use will help prevent any problems. All the knives offered have octagonal handles unless otherwise specified and come with 50/50 bevels on the edge.
