This knife was made exclusively for Chefknivestogo using a hybrid shape we nicknamed "Togatta." It's a cross between a gyuto and a sujihiki and was popularized by French knife makers and later copied by a few Japanese knife makers over the years. Pro cooks like the versatile shape very much. Moritaka Supreme knives provide an exceptional rendering of Aogami Super steel sandwiched between softer iron cladding which is presented with a Kurouchi finish. Moritaka is one of the oldest and most storied knife makers on our site. They have been forging blades for over 700 years and that tradition is imbued into this wonderful gyuto.
At 250mm, these knives feel well-balanced and are confidence-inspiring. The 50/50 convex grind does a great job separating ingredients and the Aogami Super steel is a real treat to use. It takes an incredibly sharp and refined edge and is slower to patina than other carbon steels due to the higher alloy content in the steel. These knives punch beyond their price point and are a great piece of Japanese blade-making history.
