Moriya Munemitsu Kuchigane Santoku 180mm Aogami Super
Moriya Munemitsu YHC belongs to the same group of companies as Yasugi Specialty Steels ('YSS'), producers of the fine Aogami Super Steel and Gingami#3 stainless steel from which this knife is produced.
Aogami Super is the highest grade YSS cutlery steel and the company's knives showcase its properties of terrific sharpness and superior wear resistance. Manufacture is highly automated and while that may not be as romantic as some of the same company's artisanal wa-bocho, standards and quality control are industry-leading. Heat treatment is exacting.
The AS santoku is a multi-purpose knife for the home kitchen. It provides that thrilling Aogami Super sharpness in an easy-care package and is perfect for processing vegetables and further portioning smaller cuts of meat and fish. With the gapless 'kuchigane' stainless steel bolster this knife should also be suitable for commercial settings where thorough tool sterilisation is mandated.
Easy care due in large part to the Gingami stainless steel enveloping the aogami super, however note that the 5mm or so of the cutting edge will be prone to rust if not looked after. Wash well and rinse the blade in hot water before wiping dry.
The handle is goban (Pakkawood in English), a durable handle material of compressed wood fibre and resin that will retain its beauty and integrity for many years.
Full-tang construction lends strength and balance. Excellent fit and finish. Great steel. Superior sharpness.
