These knives are crafted by the skilled blacksmiths of Moritaka Hamono, a family-owned business that has been forging blades for over 700 years. The 270mm gyuto knife is a perfect example of the expertise and attention to detail that goes into each Moritaka knife.

The Aogami Super steel used in this knife is of the highest quality. It has been treated to a Rockwell hardness of 65 HRC, which allows for excellent edge retention and a very high level of sharpness. The Kurouchi finish adds a rustic aesthetic to the knife, while the symmetric convex grind and flatter edge profile make it ideal for push and pull cutting.

The knife is constructed using the traditional technique of San Mai, with a layer of Aogami Super Steel forge-welded between two layers of soft iron. The tang is made of stainless steel for added corrosion resistance.

Experience a higher level of performance, quality of steel and tradition offered by Moritaka knives. Please note that we do not have a saya for this knife. Order yours today and experience the difference in quality.
