ALLEN <> The Moritaka Supremes are Hitachi Aogami Super steel (blue super), and they are hardened to Hrc 64-65. They are iron-clad & have a kurouchi finish. These knives are light, & they take & retain a truly sick edge.

The Hiromoto is stainless-clad, and is not hardened nearly as much, only to Hrc 61. Obviously, this makes it a considerably more durable to blunt trauma, but at the expense of the ability to take that same edge.

The biggest differences are above. The Hiromoto is a bigger heavier knife able to take more abuse than the Moritaka. The Hiromoto is a bit thick behind the edge & benefits from a thinning that you can have done at the site for $50 upon ordering, I believe.

Allen - the web pages where you can find the steel and HRC values are:

http://www.chefknivestogo.com/hiromotoknives.html
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/moao2.html

I have a Moritaka Blue #2 130mm petty and it is extremely well made.

ALLEN <> FYI: VOVA is referencing Adam Marr's upgraded handles w/Shaun's thinning service.
