Moritaka Deba 165mm – 180mm Aogami Super Kurouchi w/ Cherrywood Handle
223.08$ – 249.48$
Moritaka Aogami Super Steel Deba is ideal for filleting hard-boned fish, such as sea bream, and chopping chicken bones. Since Moritaka Deba is made thinner than other single-edge Deba, cutting from tip to heel is smoother than with other Deba.This Deba knife has a double-bevel blade. Fit and finish is excellent on these knives, and given the amount of metal that is used to produce deba’s, this is one of the best values to be found in handcrafted AS steel. These knives are worth much more than what they are sold for, it’s an excellent value for money. We love both series of Moritaka knives and we are 100% sure that you will be amazed by the quality, sharpness and high performance of these carbon steel blades. Moritaka Hamono is both one of the most interesting and admirable companies you will ever find.

This incredible Moritaka Deba 165mm-180mm Aogami Super comes from Moritaka Hamono, a traditional knife making company that has a history of over 700 years.
During years of experience, they have developed unique skills and knowledge, which have been passed from generation to generation. Moritaka’s unique bladesmithing techniques allow producing knives that will keep fine edges longer than any other knife on the market. The Moritaka family is primarily dedicated to producing a large variety of kitchen knives but also edge tools for gardening, agriculture and forestry.
We are extremely happy to be able to offer two top lines of Moritaka Hamono knives: Aogami super and Aogami #2 with premium Cherrywood handle.
Aogami Super Steel along with Aogami #2 is selected because of their extra durability and longer edge retention. The long-lasting handle is made out of seasoned Cherrywood. The important thing about Moritaka knives is the fact that the carbon blade is forged to a stainless tang, which means that any moisture will not result in premature pitting or damage to the handle. This new design and patented solution ensure both longevity and hygiene of the knives.
Aogami Super Steel is the highest YSS (Yasugi Speciality Steel) that contains high percentages of carbon, chrome and tungsten to increase hardness, improving edge retention corrosion resistance with the RC Hardness of 64-65. Aogami Super Steel is prized for its ability to take a very steep, sharp edge.
Aogami #2 steel is made by adding chromium and tungsten to Shirogami (White steel, the purest of the carbon steels), which makes the material more durable and provides corrosion resistance and is mostly used for making high-grade kitchen knives and outdoor knives. Its HRC is approximately 60.
Both lines are made with 50/50 bevels on the edge.
Moritaka Deba Aogami Super will amaze you with it’s quality and how well it balances in hands.
