Like all Moritaka Supreme knives, this kurouchi-finished santoku sports a core of very hard Aogami Super steel which can take an incredibly acute and refined edge. This steel is also slightly less reactive than other carbon steels due to the high alloy content.
Moritaka Hamono is one of the oldest knife manufacturers we carry on our site and centuries of crafting hand forged blades have culminated in these wonderful knives. 50/50 convex grinds provide great ingredient separation and the high level of fit and finish on these knives belies the extremely aggressive pricing for such a premium product. We are thrilled to be the only US distributor of these knives which are truly a piece of Japanese blade making history and exceptional value. It comes with a nice ho wood octagonal handle with buffalo horn ferrule.
Weight: 4.2 ounces
Blade Length: 185 mm
Overall Length: 328 mm
Spine Thickness at Base: 3 mm
Blade Height: 48 mm
