moritaka problems still happening ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm new to the forums so I'm still finding my way. So anyway I'm in the market for a new gyuto (not my first) and I'm leaning heavy to the 240 moritaka as or the zakuri as. I know both knives are very different but the heart wants what it wants. So my main reason for writing is because I am very sketched out about moritakas reputation with the grind issues. Most of what I read was a couple years ago and nothing negative recently. Has akiko addressed these issues or are people just over the whole thing. Thank you all for your time.

im looking to sell that exact knife (moritaka). i think it is a knife by knife kinda thing. the one i have needed work to its shinogi. but now its done it works well. i think the issue comes from not finishing the knife on stones, the edges were still convex from the water wheel. shoot me a pm if ure interested.

Problem with overground blades is, you only recognize it after use, or more exactly, after thinning. The Moritaka reseller in the US made it even worse by trying to just ignore the problem, and later on, by blaming his competitors.

A word of caution.
I have a 210 moritaka and the blade is very flat. It is as flat as my nakiri, it's only got a curve right at the end. I bought another 210 recently and they are very different blade profiles.
It is basically a nakiri with a point.
I tend to alternate between my nakiri and the moritaka for veggies.
I personally would not get a 240 moritaka as the blade profile would likely be too flat for me on a 240 knife.
