Katsushige Anryu is recognized worldwide for his knife making skills. He learned is trade under the tutelage of his father. Anryu-san has been the recipient of many awards in his over 50-year tenure as head of the Anryu Blacksmith shop in Takefu Knife Village. These include a nomination as an Excellent Successor of Traditional Craftsmen, the award of the Certificate of Traditional Craftsmen, and an award from The Kansai Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry.

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 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.

      Nice little knife, January 25, 2020
    Posted By: Chris - verified customer

    I am new to the world of Japanese knives, so every knife purchase is kind of a first for me, but this is a beautifully crafted little knife and it is a joy to use.
