Another addition to the Anryu AS line is the Santoku 170mm. It is made by legendary blacksmith Katsushige Anryu. Anryu-san is a fourth generation blacksmith who has been hand-making knives for over 50 years and is a founder of the famous Takefu Knife Village located in Echizen, Japan.

We have a great fondness for Aogami Super steel, which was specifically developed for tools and knives. AS has superior wear resistance and is liked for its excellent retention and fine edge capabilities. Aogami Super is also quite easy to sharpen. Anryu-san clads the blade in a softer stainless steel, which protects the inner core from corrosion while improving strength and shock protection. Even though it is clad in a stainless steel, the AS core edge is still reactive so wiping down and drying should be done after every use.

The blade is quite thin at the heel compared to other Anryu santoku knives, coming in at 2.8mm. It is average in height and weight. Otherwise it is standard santoku fare with its classic sheepís foot tip and gently curved belly. As with all of Anryu-sanís knives, this has a well-executed grind and a nice standard of fit and finish.

The blade is mated to a very nice octagonal maple and black pakka wood handle.
