About the Shape -Shallots, garlic, herbs, itty bitty diced onion and tomato, beef tartare… none can stand up to the small but mighty Kamagata. The flatness along the edge and its height makes it ideal for chopping, and its flat-out adorable size makes it easy to wield for cooks of all sizes.
About Moritaka Ishime -Moritaka Hamono was founded in 1293 and have been producing high quality blades for 31 generations. I think they know what they’re doing by now. Five generations ago the family made the switch to producing only Hocho (kitchen knives).The knives made by the Moritaka family have a real classiness and beauty. This series of knives are known for a thinness which translates to fantastic sharpness. This finish is known as Ishime, Rock Surface, and was not used on kitchen knives before this series. This series is exclusive to Knifewear.
