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.
