The core steel of this fine gyuto is fashioned from the ever popular Aogami Super high carbon alloy made by Hitachi Metals. Aogami Super is a wonderful alloy for knives as it can be taken to very high levels of hardness. Moritaka heat treats the steel to 64-65 HRC which is an excellent level for this use. Edge retention is really outstanding as is the edge refinement these knives are capable of.

The inner core of the knife is clad in a softer iron that Moritaka bestows with a very fine kurouchi finish. This bolsters the anti-corrosive properties of the knife. The grinds on this series are excellent and the edges are an absolute dream to work with. They sharpen with ease up to high grits and are capable of taking steep edge angles. They are also durable and exhibit great retention.

This gyuto is a perfect length for smaller kitchens and chefs favoring a more compact sized knife. The dimensions also make it well suited to tackling smaller ingredients or those requiring fine detail work. It has a short, flat spot from the heel to about one third along the blade, where it transitions to a well curved belly. It should be a knife suited to most cutting styles but rockers in particular will love it.

We have made this blade available with a fine custom made handle crafted by Isaiah Schroeder.

    Knife was impressive and extremely sharp out of the box! Very well finished and tough ups to this knife are a breeze. I just Wish CKTG would have replied back with more information on what materials and maybe specs on the custom handle.

    The edge is a laser right out of the box. The care that went into the crafting is obvious, with a gorgeous kurouchi blade and majestic handle. This was my first foray into Moritaka steel, and I've definitely gained a huge respect for the smith. Highly recommend it.
