This Moritaka Kiritsuke Supreme Series measures 240mm on the blade and is an excellent knife for most uses in the kitchen.

The knives we sell by Moritaka cutlery are made from Aogami Super Steel with an RC Hardness of 64. 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. The handle is octagonal and is made from Yew wood with buffalo horn ferrule.

  • blade length: 242mm
  • total length: 395mm
  • spine thickness at base: 3.93mm
  • blade height: 49.09mm

  • Average rating is 4.6

    This is a gorgeous knife! This is my first knife made with aogami super steel and now i know what all the fuss is about! It came very sharp ootb. I even shaved a big patch of arm hair off ootb! It isn’t as quick to rust as other carbon blades i own. And i know its preference,but i love the rustic look of the kurouchi finish on the blade,and LOVE the sword tip! Its a head turner for sure! Sharpening has been a breeze,and you can get it razor sharp. Also,it’s amazing to me just how long this blade holds it edge. I highly recommend this knife or any other Moritaka for that matter. They are a great deal price wise as far as I’m concerned.

    One other thing: ordering from Mark at CKTG is as good as it gets! He’ll inspect knives for you if you ask him,before they are shipped to you,and will take anything back if you are not happy upon its arrival. Shipping is free and QUICK!

    I bought a few Moritakas years ago and recently bought this one for a friend. The finish and handle quality are far superior on these newer knives. Moritaka does a nice job with their heat treatments. Their blue steel takes and holds a better edge than a Hiromoto AS but not as well as Murray Carter’s. The geometry on these is kind of strange. The thickness at the spine continues down towards the edge for quite a while before tapering. The profile seems more ground than hammered. This makes it a fairly heavy very strong workhorse knife. Not going to fall through carrots but no need to baby it. The Kiritsuke is a real looker.

    Extraordinary cutting ease from the shallow bevel geometry extending 1/2 inch up the edge,the uniform thinness of the blade and the heft (good weight). The edge outlasts Blue paper steel (Rockwell 63) on Tadefusa knives,and other lower hardness Aogami steel

    Great knife,really love the look of it. I like that it is a great workhorse knife and not just a collectors item so i dont feel bad using it in service for a variety of different tasks. Not many complaints about it,out of the box it was sharp but not as sharp as I expected,though I very very easily made it super scary sharp and the edge retention on this knife is unreal. I used in extensivly on my 12 hour shifts and it still remains scary sharp after all that abuse. By far the best knife I have used,I have to be careful,its so sharp it tends to sometimes bite into the board if i push to hard. Highly recommend this knife and any of the moritaka knives...truly feels like a work of art that you can enjoy while working. Thanks to mark for the recommendation.

    Great knife sharp right out of the box I owned a shun,henckles,two tojiro knives. I must say that the shun and henckles will never be as sharp as this moritaka even out of the box the aogami super steel is far superior to any stainless steel knife by miles!

    Great knife extremely sharp. I have owned a Shun classic,Henckles,a bunch of Tojoro knives,forschner,and Swiss knives all Japanese or western and this knife is the sharpest. I have always been a fan of blue steel knives and I realize the shuns,henckles,etc can never really get as sharp as the blue super steel...great knife,great price,great customer service.

    First Moritaka and not my last. Awesome knife all around. The blade is very flat with a little curve at the tip. Out of the box was good to push cut paper. Edge retention is out of this world. Took it to work for two days of hard prep and only stropped it after the end of the day then was good to go. Took it to the stones to touch it up which was easy. Only problem is the D shape handle as I am a lefty but don’t let that stop you. And the usual great service from Mark.

    So far so good. I have had this knife for just a few weeks but I love it. Super sharp,looks and feels great. First moritaka,but won’t be my last.

    This knife is AMAZING! Otb,very sharp... a minute (literally) on the stones and strop and "wow". Katsura muki is so much easier. The knife provides a good deal of feedback and patina is less of an issue than I expected (in comparison to my yanagiba or usuba). I’m equally impressed with the prompt answers to my question from Mark and excellent service. Also,the free sharpie in the box was a nice treat... I’m always hunting for one at work,and never remember to get one at the store. Thanks again Mark!

    This knife is worth every penny. Was quite decent OOTB,but gave it a quick sharpen and it took a super sharp and precise edge and holds that edge ridicoulously well with a little TLC. This knife has come through heavy prep still holding a serious edge. Aogami super is great steel and moritaka has obviously mastered it. Kiritsuke/gyuto is a unique and very verstile style knife. It is a priviledge to own one from a great company with roots as deep as Moritaka has. I highly rcommend any knife from Moritaka,as well as the superb service from Chef Knives ToGo.

    This knife was screaming sharp out of the box. I could not believe it. I have pounded it through all kinds of product from poultry fabrication to veg work and this knife tears through everything I can thorough at it. I don’t use it for fish,I use a single bevel Deba for that,but for work horse tasks it is perfect. I also have a Yanagiba for slicing proteins. Now for the service. These guys are quick to respond,the shipping is mind meltingly fast. I got may two days after I ordered it with free shipping. Will be ordering from them again.

    My awesome wife got this for me for Christmas. It immediately became my number one knife. I haven’t run it over my sharpening stones yet but it was pretty sharp oob. Love the balance and shape of the blade. Feels great in my hand and even flew through some of the tough winter vegetables that we have been working with lately.

    Because of the shape of the blade I don’t use it for chopping herbs ( I have my trusty Tojiro for that) but all my slicing and dicing jobs go to the Moritaka.

    Thank you Mark and chefknivestogo!!!
