Moritaka Knives Blue #2 Steel Chinese Cleaver 220mm

Are you captivated by the samurai spirit and in search of a Japanese kitchen knife that embodies everything essential, omitting the unnecessary? Moritaka Hamono invites you into a world where the art of swordsmithing meets culinary excellence, with a legacy spanning over 725 years and 31 generations on the historic islands of Okinawa.

For those who cherish the notion that their kitchen knife shares a lineage with the legendary samurai swords, Moritaka Hamono offers an authentic connection to that esteemed heritage. Their expertise, honed through centuries, brings you closer to realizing the samurai dream with each slice.

About the knife: This particular cleaver is forged with Blue #2 steel, renowned for its remarkable sharpness and superior edge retention, all while being enveloped in a distinctive kurouchi finish. The craftsmanship of Moritaka-san’s kurouchi finish is a testament to a rich history of blade making, offering both beauty and functionality.

Contrary to the typical perception of a Chinese cleaver being suited for heavy-duty tasks like spatchcocking a chicken, this knife is designed with precision for vegetable preparation. Dubbed "caidao" by the Chinese, which translates to vegetable cleaver, it functions as an exceptionally tall nakiri. With its impressive 220mm length and robust spine, this forward-heavy knife effortlessly powers through vegetables, making your culinary tasks a breeze.

To ensure you receive the best out of the box experience, we recommend opting for our professional sharpening service.
