Don't forget these...
Please note all Moritaka Knives are double bevel to properly support their impossibly hard steel. Many call this a Sujihiki, however we use the manufactures name out of respect for the makers.
Are you still after that samurai dream and want a Japanese kitchen knife that has everything you need, and leaves out everything you don't? Try out a Moritaka Hamono and see why they have been in business for so long.
Some people need to believe that the smith who forged their Japanese kitchen knife also forged samurai swords way back when, in order to conjure that fantasy we are all after of wanting to be a samurai. Well, Moritaka Hamono is about as close as it gets to that fantasy, having forged swords, now kitchen knives on the islands of Okinawa for the last ~725 years and 31 generations of experience.
About the knife: this knife has a core steel of Aogami Super (Blue Super Steel) which delivers incredible sharpness and edge retention wrapped in a kurouchi finish. Moritaka-san's kurouchi finish is in our opinion one of the more distinguishable ones around. Maybe that 700 years of history has something to do with it.
A 240mm sujihiki - sujihiki literally translates to "flesh slicer" - is a very typical length for slicing a small portion of meat in one single swooping motion, or a larger portion of meat sawing back and forth with minimal tearing.
