Harukaze knives are made exclusively for us at CKTG by a well-known knife manufacturer in Tosa, Japan. We asked them for a line of knives that would embody the traditions of Japanese knife making while using some of the best steels and modern techniques—and at a price point that would be affordable to most chefs on the line and at home. Enter the Harukaze AS Morado!

These great looking knives are made from one of our all-time favorite steels, Aogami Super or Super Blue. This has to be one of the best alloys available for making kitchen knives. It is a hard steel that can be taken to a high Rockwell rate. But it is also one that will sharpen with ease while taking a razor-sharp edge. The inner core of AS steel is clad, san-mai style, with a softer stainless steel. The jigane is then given a great looking kurouchi and tsuchime finish. This makes for a very easy-to-maintain blade and a really smart looking knife.

In keeping with many blades from the Tosa region, this blade is slightly over length, coming in at 245mm. These are really well achieved grinds that look better than the price would suggest. It is a medium thickness knife that gets thin behind the edge but it quite stiff in general. The spine thickness is pretty constant along the length up to the thin tip.

A very nicely finished oval handle made from walnut and maple completes this compelling picture.

      Harukaze AS MORADO, March 15, 2020

    Quick, tracked shipment. Unfortunately knife was so sharp that when is was dropped off I think it was literally dropped, when dropped off, facing downward, because the knife slid or cut through the front of the box and stabbed the concrete, chipping the tip slightly. Easily fixed on a stone but will take a bit of work. The AS stuck in the crete like sword in the Stone! I could feel a little sharp point stuck in my porch concrete right where the box stood, when I went to inspect the area it was dropped-off on the porch. Kurouchi has scratching too. Blade is incredibly sharp OOTB even with the tip chipped! Just fell through a carrot I first tried it on. I liked the cut so much on this on I'm going to fix chip and change handle on this one first.

    What an unbelievable price for a stainless clad knife with great steel! It's not a tall knife, and has a fair amount of belly; maybe even more pronounced in the 240mm version. So, transitioning into Japanese knives, or just as an all around prep monster, it's a shoe-in. No real present distal taper, but it thins out at the tip well. The edge geometry is thin with an aggressive bevel. Kurouchi is dark and seems like it will last. Handle is decent. I've seen a few of these Harukaze and they are an unbeatable value; can't go wrong!
