Okimoto Mori 240mm Chef Knife
The 240mm Okimoto chef knife is a great match for those who can't get their head around those confounding Japanese style handles - yes you know who you are ...
Okimoto Mori Series
The Mori series boasts one of the thinnest blade profiles available. Straight out of the box they cut with a little resistance but a little tickle on waterstones will bring them to full potential.
One advantage of the blade being so thin is even after several sharpening sessions it won’t need as much work to keep a useful blade profile. Of course being a thin blade, extra care needs to be taken not to chip the edge so please cut responsibly.
Made of Aichi stainless molybdenum vanadium steel they are a little softer than the rigid VG10 blade, which makes for easier re-sharpening. The final edge is offset on the right hand side for accuracy for right handers. Lefties can correct the bevel by adding to the microbevel on the back side.
The Okimoto Mori knives feature solid pakkawood western handles with a seamless stainless steel bolster.
Named for the legendary drinking samurai from the Mori clan, Okimoto knives are no nonsense workhorses that will leave a few dollars in your wallet for your next bottle of Japanese Sake.
