200 years before Columbus landed in The Americas, Moritaka Hamono was producing hand forged blades. Centuries of knowledge and tradition have culminated in the production of Moritakaís Supreme series of knives. Aogami Super (AS) steel treated to achieve a Rockwell Hardness rating of 64-65 is found at the core of this 130mm petty. The AS steel in Moritakaís knives is excellent. Very hard, capable of extreme levels of refinement and acuteness and less prone to corrosion than many other carbon steels, the edge of this knife is a dream to sharpen and cut with. Clad in softer iron with a kurouchi finish, the rustic aesthetics are both pleasing and evocative of the deep tradition of Moritaka Hamono.

    This is a really nice knife, comes quite sharp OTB and sharpens up really easily. I have been using it in a professional kitchen and it holds its edge through many days of work with some gentle stropping.

    Its is very light and the blade it nice and thin.

    The only thing I would change is it would be nice if the blade had a little more height to it, but not really a big deal.

    I will probably buy the 210 if I decide carbon is not too much of a hassle for use at work.

    I have used this knife for about 5 months now and i absolutely love it. I use it as a paring knife/utility knife. I had it professionally sharpened and all I have to do from time to time is polish it on a 6000 grit stone and strop and the bite never goes away. Highly recommended for those serious cooks out there. Just keep dry after each use and rust should not be a problem.

    Most of my Japanese knives are quite heavy, so I purchased this one with lightness and handiness in mind. It does not disappoint. It arrived moderately sharp, but I prefer my blades to be razor sharp. A little time with a fine grit Japanese water stone and my new sink bridge turned this blade into a shaver in short order. It comes with an attractive and comfortable rosewood handle that you usually are charged extra for. My wife also prefers it to most of my other heavier knives and her favourable impression certainly helps to justify my obsession with good-quality knives. I would regard this as a very good entry-level knife.

    Brilliant, perfectly balanced, incredibly sharp out of the box, though it got even better after a few minutes on the stone. This and my Moritaka 240mm gyuto do almost everything I need to do in the kitchen. A beautifully crafted knife.

    I've been using this knife now for a couple of months, it has replaced my shun premiere (pairing) and is the only knife i need for service, the only thing is the rust (since i cut lots of fresh vegetables during service) is a pain to be cleaning it, though i kept the paper that came with the knife and just dry it and packt it back, so far i have only sharpen it once on the whetstone, and still use it everyday, a beautiful knife worth the money

    This has become my wifes go to knife and I use it as well.

    The feel is different from the Takedas, not better or worse just different. The performance is on par with the Takedas.

    My next purchase will be a Moritaka Yanagiba, the only decision is will it be the 270 or 300?

    Love the knife.

    I was having a hard time finding a paring knife or petty that I liked enough to by. Until I saw this little number. I chose to buy it because it is not to long and the blade has some height to it. My first impression of it out of the box was WOW! Its even More Wicked than it looks on cktg! After polishing the edge a little I gotta saw that it performs better than I had expected, (and I expected a lot). If you like the way it looks then buy it. You will be happy you did. Full Five Stars from me!

    Great little knife from a great family! Very sharp and cuts well. Looks great! Very traditional type of style. Definitely need to wipe dry or it will rust (but should will all knives). Price is great for this knife! Shipping is always great from ChefKnivesToGo - thanks for carrying so many great knives!!

    Great knife! I have been replacing my set of work knives and this is perfect for a Wa-styled paring knife.

    It is a little larger than most parers but, just a great knife for my purposes. The edge holds up great for long prep sessions and I have yet to have any problems with rust.

    I plan on filling in the gaps of my collection with a few more from this line.

    I received this knife a last week. The edge out of the box was ok, and could slice paper well. I put it on the Edge Pro Apex and sharpened it with the custom Chosera stones before stropping it with compounds from Hand American and Ken's corner. It's a laser now as you can see in my video.
    I highly recommend this petty to everybody. The fit and finish is incredible and the steel is fantastic.
