Katsushige Anryu started apprenticing as a knife maker under his father, Katsutoshi Anryu, after graduating high school in 1959. He is a fourth generation knife maker and has been working as a blacksmith for well over 50 years. These knives that we are selling under his name are great examples of his work.
The Kurouchi Suminagashi line has a beautiful dark finish with a damascus touch along the edge. This knife features a sky-blue lacquered ho-wood handle.
I had a cheap Nakiri before I got this one. I loved it’s shape so much I just had to improve it. This is the upgrade I purchased and I couldn’t be happier. It’s razor sharp,and holds it’s edge. Holds up to the demands of a commercial kitchen.
