The Anryu AS Gyuto 240mm is another new addition to the line of Aogami Super knives from the forge of Katsushige Anryu. Anryu-san is a fourth generation blacksmith who has been hand-making knives for over 50 years and has a very strong following among knife users and collectors worldwide.

This new range of knives from the master is based around the popular steel known as Aogami Super, or AS. The steel was originally developed for tool and knife makers and it has the highest wear resistance of all the blue steels. It contains the highest amount of carbon and chromium of the three alloys, which not only increases its hardness, but also gives it a slight advantage over the others in terms of corrosion resistance. This is further enhanced by the use of a stainless cladding with a hammered kurouchi finish.

This is standard gyuto fare in its proportions. The 244mm length is matched to a nice height of 51mm. It has a bit of a flat spot at the heel but it quickly transforms to a gentle belly from there on. The tip is well crafted and the blade is quite thin behind the edge. It is fairly stout at the spine and the primary bevel starts just about where the kurouchi finish ends.

The knife comes with a nicely finished octagonal handle made from maple and black pakka wood.

    I am very happy to own this knife. The grind is amazing, it has enough meat near the handle to really give it some power on the board. It tapers nice down to the tip, cross cuts on onions are a breeze and I can even cross cut large fennel. After 2 weeks of owning this, the aogami steel has taken a really nice blueish purple patina. I love the curved choil and heel height, makes for long prep sessions very comfortable. Octagonal handle is much nicer then expected. The kurochi finish is very impressive in person and actually a nice grip while holding the knife. Great service and fast shipping, my other knives are getting jealous.
