This one has a blonde ferrule.

The longest knife in Moritaka’s Supreme series, this yanagiba, better described as a sujihiki, measures 300mm along the edge. Aogami Super, found in the core of this knife, is an ideal steel for slicing applications. It can take an incredibly refined and acute edge which is capable of an extremely smooth cut without clinging to protein fibers or causing cellular wall damage.

Like all Moritaka Supreme knives, the Aogami Super core is clad with soft iron and given a kurouchi finish, which provides some protection from rust and discoloration along with a unique rustic aesthetic. These knives are steeped in 700 years of hand-forged blade crafting tradition and are incredible performers. 50/50 grinds make these appropriate for users that favor either hand. Please note as of May 15th, 2015 these knives now have a ho wood octagonal handle with blonde buffalo horn ferrule. The photos are current.

    Not the prettiest blade out there (the kurouchi finish does not look as good as the one on the Takeda, for that, you need there ishime line) but it is certainly a great knife in terms of performance. Once sharpened, the steel holds it's edge really well and the grind is incredible. Really a great purchase at this price point.

    This is the third Moritaka I now own and it does not disappoint. Great steel, great grind and simply a great product.I cannot say enough about how nice this knife is. The finish, handle and grind are all top notch and the rustic finish with Aogami Super Steel is difficult to beat at any price point.All in all a great knife in this price range, nice and sharp right out of the box and when I do take it to the stones, will produce a wicked sharp edge. Cannot wait to get my naturals delivered and see what I can really do with this knife.100% recommend this knife and I wouldn't considering it anywhere else but from Mark at CKTG!!

    Updating review in to regards of purported overgrind issues. This beast has been in the hands of several well regarded knife experts, and consensus is the grind is spot-on! If the grind is going to get messed up, its going to be on a 300mm yanagi. Even $3000 yanagis often have overground heels, and holes behind the edge, as 12 of blade is hard to get perfect.I have only grown more fond of this knife. Outperforms yanagis at three times the price!I am a Moritaka believer!

    Handle is very nice; holds a decent edge; very affordable, great value; doesn't rust as quickly as the Takeda; Is thicker than a sujihiki, but thinner than a traditional single bevel yanagi.
