To put the age of Moritaka Hamono into perspective, Westerners still believed the world was flat when Moritaka began producing hand forged blades. Over 700 years of tradition and craftsmanship have been brought to bear in the Moritaka Supreme series of knives which house a core of Aogami Super (AS) steel between layers of softer iron cladding. Ever innovating, Moritaka welds a stainless tang to a hand forged blade to prevent corrosion under the handle. Indeed, the kurouchi finish on these blades also improves the corrosion resistance of otherwise highly reactive cladding. The symmetric grinds on Moritaka Supreme knives get very thin behind the edge and display a degree of convexing to aid in ingredient separation. Finding hand crafted blades of this caliber, and premium AS steel at this price point, is a virtual impossibility, making the Supreme series of knives some of the best values on our site.

The 240mm kiritsuke comes double-beveled and symmetrically ground in Western style which adds some durability to the edge and an ambidextrous personality to the blade overall. The pattern is excellent for push and pull cutting and the flatter edge also makes it a fairly decent slicer. These characteristics make it a favorite with cooks that see a good bit of protein work and veggie prep which does not require rocking through large ingredients. 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.
