Aogami Super, perfectly rendered, is found at the core of Moritaka Supreme knives. The treatment of these knives has the steel achieving a Rockwell Hardness of 64-64. The core steel is wrapped in reactive iron cladding; however, the kurouchi finish on these knives does an excellent job preventing corrosion. That said, these knives are fully reactive and should be kept dry and wiped down during use.
Moritaka draws on the companyís 700 years of experience producing hand forged blades to produce this 150mm honesuki, or poultry knife. The edges on this knife can be taken extremely steep and through high levels of refinement on the stones. Given the intended purpose, it may be worth keeping the makerís bevel angle in place to avoid chipping when working through poultry joints. We highly recommend this knife for left handed users as Moritaka has ground the blade symmetrically which is not the case with most honesukis you will find.
