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.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
