Moritaka Hamono is a small, family run blacksmith shop that turn out high quality blades from their workshop in Yatsuhiro Japan. This line is their flagship Aogami Super Steel line that bear Moritaka Supreme series moniker. The AS core is clad in a softer iron, which is dressed in a beautiful kurouchi finish. This, along with the Moritaka welded tang, goes a long way toward enhancing corrosion resistance. (Moritaka welds a stainless tang to a hand forged blade to prevent corrosion inside the handle.)

The 270mm AS Kiritsuke is a double-beveled and symmetrically ground blade. Classic Japanese kiritsukes are single-beveled knives. Using a double bevel enhances durability to the edge and gives an ambidextrous personality to the blade overall. This style of blade is perfect for push and pull cutting, plus the flatter edge makes it a good substitute for a slicer. The knife will be a favorite with cooks who do a lot of protein work and veggie prep, as well as those who like to push rather than rock through large ingredients.

We have a very limited number of these fascinating blades that we are making available with our exclusive bog oak custom handles made by Isaiah Schroeder.
