Moritaka Cutlery was founded in 1293 (during the Kamakura Period) by Kongouhyoueminamotono Moritaka, who was the head swordsimth for the Buddhist priests at Mt. Houman in Dazaifu, Fukuoka. His descendants then inherited his business and followed his footsteps in the same city for 13 generations.
Blade Height: 49mm
Blade Thickness at spine/heel 3mm
Blade Thickness at spine/middle 1.85
Each one is hand cut and finished so each one is slightly different from the next.
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.
oh god i’m in love.
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!
