This Moritaka Deba is made from Aogami Super Steel and measures approximately 180mm on the blade. As with all Moritaka knives this one has a 50/50 edge. Moritaka offers free re-sharpening service for each new knife. 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 blonde yew octagonal handle. We at Chefknivestogo highly recommend these knives and are proud to offer them as the only US distributor that we know of.
This is a top product indeed. I allready bought the Gyuto 210 mm directly at Moritaka’s site but the €/Yen hanky panky almost doubled the price of this top product. Just charging as done with Chef’s went perfect. And the cost for shipping is reasonable too.
I love the patina of the Moritaka blades. And the quality of the handles. The holding of the edge property is,as the French say: "hors competition".
A joy just lifting it out of the box; touch it;let the handle caress the palm of your hand; look at it; work with it; clean it and cherish it.
The Kiritsuke 240mm is on its way to be added to the collection. And I think the Santoku an the Petty will follow soon to complete it. And maybe the cleaver,just because it is such a beautiful piece of craftmanship. And so are they all.
The craftsmanship of this blade is just beyond words. I was taking back by its out of box sharpness if that’s a word but after I took its across my 3000 stone it was just something amazing.
