Anryu AS Nakiri 165mm

Item #: AAS-N165
Our Price: $160.00
After 50 years, Anryu has given over his business to his trusted apprentice, Ikeda san, who now manages Anryu Hamono and does the lion's share of the work.

This is a new line of knives from this famed blacksmith. They are made from Aogami Super steel. AS steel is part of the Hitachi Blue Paper high carbon steel family, specifically developed for tools and knives. This steel has the highest wear resistance and lowest toughness of the three Blue Paper steels. Edge holding is truly outstanding and it is easy to sharpen too. 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 of the others in terms of corrosion resistance. The inner core steel is clad with a soft stainless steel in the san-mai style of awase. This makes the knife easy to care for.

The Anryu AS nakiri is a pretty standard size for this style blade. It has a comfortable height of 52mm coupled to a blade length of 165mm. The edge has a nice gentle belly that will be especially appreciated by rocking style users.

The rustic kurouchi finish is a perfect look for this knife which is further enhanced with a nice octagonal maple handle with a black pakka wood ferrule.
