One of the most famous sword-smiths and knife makers on our site is Moritaka Hamono. They have developed their outstanding knives by drawing on over 700 years of experience hand forging swords and kitchen and hunting knives. Unlike many other knife makers, Moritaka works exclusively with Aogami, or blue steel. Their top of the line series offered here is called Supreme and it uses Aogami Super (AS) at the core. Experts with this particular steel, Moritaka treats it to an HRC of 64-65 which is insanely hard and allows for an acute, highly refined edge.
Sporting 50/50 convex grinds and a superbly treated core of Aogami Super, these kurouchi finished blades are not only exceptional performers, but represent extreme value given the hand crafted nature and premium steel used. The kurouchi finish on these knives provides a wonderful rustic aesthetic to the blades and also aids in corrosion resistance. The convex grind on these knives is symmetrical and the blade gets very thin behind the edge.
This 90mm petty is a perfect knife for small tasks like hand paring and making intricate garnishes.
