Mr. Katsushige Anryu has over 50 years of experience as a blacksmith on display with this 210mm gyuto from his Hammered lineup. The knife is constructed of a Hitachi Aogami #2 carbon steel core hardened to 63 HRC wrapped in stainless steel for ease of maintenance. The core steel will take an extremely keen edge with ease and hold that edge for a long time. Mr. Anryu's Hammered line has built a reputation among Japanese knife enthusiasts for their high performance grinds and rustic yet refined aesthetics. As this is a handmade knife, make allowances for variations in dimensions between knives. Please note that the carbon steel core of this knife will patina with normal use and can rust if neglected.

    I had bought the 240mm version first but it was a little too long for my small kitchen but I loved it so much I bought this version.The hammered effect is aesthetically pleasing but also seems to help avoid product sticking to it.The experience of the blacksmith shines through in this knife. It's the right balance of thinness behind the edge that makes it a great choice for everyday use. It's become my go to knife in the kitchen and makes me smile when I use.

    I have bought 3 knives from this line, two for my kitchen and one as a gift. These are great cutting knives--fine steel and thin grinds but what sets these apart from many is presence. People react to these knives. The finish, profile, and handle quality all come together into a collective oooh that in my experience is unusual. The impression only deepens as they use them to cut. They fall through product, are light and balanced, and due to the excellent fit and finish there is nothing to interfere with the experience of cutting with such a fine knife. I may try, unsuccessfully, to get them to try another, but they won't let go of the Anryu. CKTG as always was exceptional in all regards.

    What a knife, Great feel in the hand , very manageable, Good for Pinch grip. I have prepared several meals with this knife and have had no trouble with any food products. The knife Was sharp out of the Box but the strop made some difference to the edge. I am sure it will be even better after going onto the stones

    Great knife out of the Box, A quick run over the strop and WOW ! Sharp, and a pleasure to use , The 210mm size is good for me because of bench space, and chopping board size.

    I can't say enough to good things about this knife. I originally bought it to have something longer then my bunka for when I'm on the line, but now I find myself using it for almost everything. It arrivedoesn't sharp enough to shave hair, and takes and holds a frightening edge. It's light, and well balanced. It's my favorite knife in my roll.

    I have been looking for a knife to replace my 240mm Konosuke and Kanehiro gyutos as they are too large for my cooking situation.
    On opening the box I brought out a couple yams and proceeded to do comparative cuts with Anryu vs the Kono and Kane and it just smoked them in ease of cutting and accuracy in cutting see-through slices off the ends.
    And I love how the 210mm has less belly than the 240mm gyutos. This size is a much better fit for my needs. The low-ish price tag is born out in the overall cleanliness of the grinds - I give a C+ there so this may not be the blade for OCD types. But as a very-good quality and splendidly performing kitchen tool I give this one an A.
    The ferrule is black pakawood rather than ebony as advertised but it takes a real wood geek to tell the difference and it looks great so who cares. The rosewood portion is the real deal however. I should also mention that the oval handle feels a little small in my small - medium sized (male) hands.

    I feel this knife is a very good value and a real workhorse kitchen tool and do recommend it to those shopping in this price range.

    Ordered this knife a couple weeks ago from CKTG. Shipping to Canada was very fast.
    OOTB edge was surprising. After a touch up it was fantastic. Super sharp and keeps an edge well. Grind is exceptional.. minimal-to-no wedging.
    Fit and finish is very nice for the price point.

    For the price I don't think you can get an overall more beautiful and higher performing knife. Anryu's craftsmanship shows with its aesthetics and performance.
