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.
Fantastic work of art from the OOTB sharp edge,the blade,the ferrule and handle. All is perfection in any price range but the cost of these knives is a real value. So nice they should be put in a case and not used!
