Aogami Super is steel prized for its wear resistance, ease of sharpening, and ability to achieve exceptional levels of hardness and, by extension, very refined and acute edges. This steel is found at the core of the Moritaka Supreme 165mm nakiri and is heat treaded to achieve a Rockwell Hardness rating of 64-65 which we find to be an excellent hardness for AS. The core steel is clad in soft iron and rendered with a kurouchi finish which provides a beautiful rustic aesthetic to the blade.

Crafting blades since the 13th century, Moritaka Hamono produces some truly prodigious knives at very attractive price points.

  • Weight 5.2 ounces
  • Blade Length: 165 mm
  • Thickness at Heel: 3 mm
  • Blade Height: 49 mm

    Please note: Moritaka takes a tiny bit off the front tip so you don't dig the knife into the board or inadvertently tip the knife when chopping. This is intentional. We have had a couple customers think that their new knife is tipped when it's not.

    5  Wicked Sharp OOTB, November 7, 2014

    Wicked sharp ootb. Watch your fingers. This steel is no joke. I've played around with blue 2 and white 2 in addition to the aogami super. Nothing performs quite like it. Itís easier to sharpen than people say. I think itís more reactive than Iíd hoped initially, so sheís no line knife, but sheís a prep workhorse. The one downside of this knife is the kurouchi finish. Itís beautiful, but it wears off really quickly. It doesn't really matter though, it just means you need to pay more attention to keeping it clean.

    I've had this knife about two months. Holds an edge like nobody's business, and it is really easy to maintain. Out of the box it's sharp enough to shave hairs, and after a couple of days working on the line, a few passes at a 3000-4000 grit stone will get you back to where you wanted to be.

    In my professional opinion, this is not a commercial kitchen knife, nor should it be considered for an introduction into carbon steel. The price point is there, however, it's understated from many sources how delicate a kurouchi finish actually is. Beyond that, the face of the blade that is still Aogami Super is much more reactive than I anticipated and I haven't even used this knife on anything acidic.

    That being said, the performance you can receive out of this knife is probably almost unmatched for the price. It is truly a remarkable step up.

    Big thanks to CKTG. Super fast delivery.

    I've had this Nakiri for a good two weeks and have put it through its paces. Light, nimble. Super sharp OTB and has kept its edge quite nicely. Highly recommend Moritaka and Chef Knives to Go. Outstanding customer service! Thanks!

    This is my first knife from CKTG. I decided on the Moritaka after talking with Mark and others on the CKTG Forum. Excellent place to go for any questions you may have. I had excellent sales and service from Mark and CKTG. Knife arrived quickly and well packaged. F&F were very good. Very Sharp OOB. I have cut a lot of trinity with this knife and it cuts silky smooth. Overall very happy with this purchase. I will be buying more knives and accessories from Mark and CKTG!

    Like all Moritakas the Nakiri is a great buy for an exceptional knife. Light, well balanced, and razor sharp out of the box. Holds its edge exceptionally well. If you are looking for an outstanding Nakiri look no farther.
