The Moritaka Supreme 210mm Kiritsuke is another instance where the maker has applied 50/50 geometry to a traditional Japanese pattern in order to heighten versatility and ease of use, and create an ambidextrous profile. Kiritsukes may lack some of the versatility of a gyuto, but the sword tip certainly makes up for some of that and how prodigious this pattern is for push and pull cutting make it a favorite addition to many cooksí blocks. If you are interested in the pattern, but have limited board space, this knife is a particularly good selection as there are relatively few kiritsukes that come in below 240 mm.

The core steel in the Moritaka Supreme line is a wonderfully treated Aogami Super which takes and holds a wicked edge. This high end carbon steel is clad with softer iron and produced with a rustic kurouchi finish. While still reactive, this finish aids in corrosion resistance. Hand-forging blades for over 700 years, Moritaka Hamono offers some of the more unique knives on our site at an incredible value given the performance, fit and finish, premium steel, and handmade nature of the knives. Please note as of May 15th, 2015 these knives now have a ho wood octagonal handle with buffalo horn ferrule. The video on the page is not current. The photos are current.

5  Amazing, January 18, 2017

I don't usually prefer 8" knives this short unless it's for slicing meats but it was too amazing to pass up. Just got this knife in the mail with a custom handle. The handle install was really nice and my knife is flatter than the one in the demo and I was very excited about that. Beautiful knife, reasonably sharp out of the box. My only wish is that I had a saya to fit it with

I've never used a kiritsuke before, but I love the shape! This is my go-to knife on service, and it's a right workhorse! It was super sharp OOTB, I ran it over a 800 grit stone after a week of near constant use [just a routine of mine rather than it needing it] and it's actually sharper than what I thought sharp was. It's a very good buy and would recommend it to anyone.

Great knife! Laser thin, but retains a solid feel. The Aogami Super Steel gets shave-ready sharp and holds that edge for a while. If you're looking for a kiritsuke, consider this beautiful, functional option. It's well worth it.

I picked this knife up not knowing what to expect having had no experience with a Kiritsuke. I love it. It takes little to put a ridiculous edge on it. It holds the edge very well. Fit and finish are both very nice as I have come to expect. The tip on this knife is exceptionally thin and sharp. My favorite things to do with this knife so far are slicing steak and brunoise of just about anything. Great Knife!
