Part of Moritaka’s Supreme series of kitchen knives, this 150mm petty boasts a core of Aogami Super steel clad in softer iron. The kurouchi finish on these knives provides a wonderful rustic aesthetic to the blades and also aids in corrosion resistance. The convex grind on the knives is symmetric and gets very thin behind the edge. Over 700 years of hand-forged blade-craft tradition has culminated in the Moritaka Supreme line of knives and both the performance and character of these blades are reflective of that. What’s more, these knives are an incredible value for the performance, quality, high-end steel, and hand-crafted character that is offered up here.

Please note that the video on the page is not current--the handles are now made with ho wood and buffalo horn. The photos are current.

      First knife I grab, January 25, 2023
    Posted By: Simon

    I've had this for about a year and it's slowly but surely replaced my chinese cleaver and larger chef knife as my go-to knife for most cuts. It's held an edge beautifully and the kurouchi finish is eye-catching. The wa handle is comfortable, very well constructed with absolutely perfect fit/finish. Really happy with the performance and craftsmanship. I am looking at other Moritaka knives because of how much I like this one.

    First and foremost this knife is a thing of beauty, especially once you start to use it on some acidic food (that patina though). Out of the box it's sharp, run it on a wet stone and it's a laser. I was worried I have never used a wa style handle but the fit is so natural to the hand it's like an extension of your arm.

    I have been putting this review off for awhile now thinking the new would wear off and I could give a more accurate review of this knife. The knife came lickety split and fairly sharp OTOTB.After acouple of three weeks I put the stones to it and now this knife is truly amazing. Now that the veggies from the garden are ripening I use this knife everyday and often. For a knife that was just going to be another knife has become my favorite. Love the steel and the handle. Fairly easy to sharpen an holds that edge. And yes you get to wipe it, and wash it right after using it or you get that sweet It's not rust it's Patina! Moritaka AS steel is amazin!

    As always, I am very pleased with the product and the service.I use a Moritaka 210mm Gyuto for prepping and this petty is great to switch over when I'm on the line. It catches the eye and works well.Thank you, thank you.

    I purchased this knife along with Takeda Banno Funayki in an an effort to answer the question: How well do super traditional Japanese blades compete with ultra-modern knives?The answer so-far is incredibly well. Prior to this knife, the highest performance utility knife I ever used was a Misono UX-10 150mm. Now, I still consider that Misono one the highest performance blades I've ever used, and I still reach for it, but this little Kurouchi blade is easily it's equal.So far, I have not really re-sharpened it. I have only stropped it on balsa wood. So far that is more than enough.This little beast slices the heads off hard garlic cloves with the greatest of easy, slays bell peppers like it was made for the task, and cuts tomatoes to bits, even when they have a tough skin and mushy insides. This is a super utility knife.With that said, I am looking forward to the day when I do a full re-sharpening of this knife. The edge is not mirror polished, and suspect that means I can improve it somewhat. It may actually become better than the Misono on that day. Until that moment, I would say they are both equally effect knives.

    If you are looking for a great buy in a very high quality utility knife - this is it. Very sharp out of the box. Surprisingly light and well balanced. Outstanding buy for the money.

    Moritaka 150mm petty. I am always pleasantly surprised when I open a knife box and find a knife that exceeds my expectations. For me that means that the craftsmanship surpasses the price and the knife is just what I wanted and a little more in this case. Rosewood handle with black ferrule, probably pakkawood,very subtle d shaped handle, perfectly fitted to this cool little blade. I like to see the subtle lines where different metals are joined, tang to blade and layer to layer, the distal taper of a handmade knife. Sharpening is easy and the way the blue steel edge gets a mirror shine and keeps it, is really why I buy these things.The copy says you can send it back and they will sharpen it for you so if you dont like meditating at the sink thats an option. As a petty knife the blade is perfect for me. The tip is sharpened for things like superfine dicing of garlic and the blade can rock but also chop flat. Perfect solution for the in between paring, and gyuto zone, although in a pinch it can work as either.Great all purpose knife in the 150mm range. R
