Moriguchi X Black 165mm Santoku

Multipurpose chef knife for everyday use.

Black Series

Produced from top end Super Blue (Aosuper) carbon steel, with even higher carbon content than Blue #1. This super steel has added tungsten for hardness, molybdenum for toughness and vanadium for wear resistance. The carbon steel core is clad in stainless steel for easier care.

More of a workhorse than a racehorse, these blades have a hammer texture with good food release.  Aosuper steel is a lot of fun to sharpen and the edge can retain a very low angle.

Another stand out feature of this range is the oval shaped handle with a little more girth than standard octagonal handles.

The exposed edge on these blades will patina (change colour) which is natural for Aosuper carbon steel, but the benefit of the Aosuper steel is the fantastic edge retention and cutting performance.

Please note:

  • The core material is made from carbon steel so care should be taken to keep the edge dry after use to prevent rust.
  • Apply a thin coat of Camellia oil to the carbon edge before storage to protect from moisture.
  • Over time the black may scratch and wear with extended use.
