All you need to do is send the knife back along with return postage and they will put a professional edge back on your knife. Their knives are made with Aogami Super Steel and come with a Kurouchi finish which adds great aesthetic appeal along with an attractive rosewood oval handle. We at Chefknivestogo highly recommend these knives and are proud to offer them. We are one of the only US distributors of these impressive knives.

Five generations ago, master bladesmith Chuzaemon Moritaka decided to change the business direction and apply our forging experiences into cutlery other than swords. Since then we have been dedicatedly producing a large variety of kitchen cutlery and edged tools for gardening, agriculture and forestry. Currently the production of Katana swords is also continued for the purpose of succession and the preservation of our traditions.
Great cleaver!!! Fit and Finish are great. I did have to do some sharpening to it when I got it,but this is usually the case for the other Moritaka knives I have purchased. I actually even prefer this over my Sugimoto #7.
