Over 700 years of history
Moritaka Hamono was founded in 1293 during the Kamakura period by Kongohyoe Minamoto no Moritaka, who was the head swordsmith for the Buddhist priests at Mt. Homan in Dazaifu, Fukuoka. His descendants followed in his footsteps in the same city for 13 generations. Five generations ago, master swordsmith Chuzaemon Moritaka decided to expand and apply his forging experience to knives.
Since then, Moritaka have been dedicated to producing a large variety of knives and utensils, and also continuing the production of Katana swords in order to preserve their ancient traditions. These Moritakas feature a Blue Steel cutting edge with a unique and identifiable black Kurouchi finish, and Octagonal Walnut and Ebony Handles.
These knives are incredibly sharp, and as such have a very thin edge. Cut on wood chopping boards only, and do not hit/cut/chop frozen vegetables, bones, or hard objects, as the blade can chip or break. Do not twist or torque the blade whilst cutting, as this may also chip the cutting edge.
No dishwasher use!
Use a cloth with hot water to wipe the blade, no scourers or abrasives as this may ruin the finish. Dry your knives as soon as possible after washing and do not leave them wet for extended periods of time. Store in a cool, dry place.
We recommend you use a whetstone to sharpen this blade. Sharpening stones are available on our website, and with a small amount of practice you’ll be sharpening your own knives in no time.
