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.
