Master blacksmith Katsushige Anryu has been plying his craft for over 50 years. He is responsible for the forging of the knives bearing his name as well as others including Masakage Mizu and Kumo knives.

The knives he is best known for are the Hammered Blue #2 line. These well respected and easy to recognize knives have gained a following of home and professional chefs due to their robust and fine construction as well as their rustic aesthetic appeal.

The blade is constructed from Hitachi Blue Paper #2 steel with a stainless steel cladding. This adds strength to the inner core while protecting it from corrosion. The stainless cladding is given that famous Anryu hammered finish. The core Blue #2 steel will take an extremely keen edge with ease and hold that edge for a long time. Even though it is wrapped in stainless steel, the exposed carbon core of the knife will discolor with normal use and could rust if abused. Keep it dry and clean and you are good to go!

This is a classic bunka in terms of size and attributes: short, but with a fine and versatile tip. Its height is tall in comparison to the blade length allowing for great hand clearance. The blade is well finished with a nicely radiused choil and polished corners and spine. It is matched to an oval handle made from rosewood with a pakka wood ferrule.

    5  Beautiful knife, great value, October 27, 2017
    Posted By: Paul

    This ticked almost all the boxes... hammered finish, carbon core clad with stainless steel for a little more ease of keeping the knife, the hand-chiseled kanji is precisely done with care, and it is slightly rounded near the pinch grip for comfort. Tang is nicely in the handle and filled, though a little beeswax there will ensure it's watertight. The tip of the knife is ground more than the rest of the blade so you get a very nice razor tip on a blade that's not necessarily thick, but not extremely thin, either, so it has the best of both worlds there. Lovely handle that's smooth throughout, though an octagonal handle would be more suitable, it does make this knife even more unique. It's a good size as well for those that may be a bit tentative with a 210mm or with smaller hands, but want a real knife and not just a petty. And that Blue #2 can get sharp :)

    I have 6 other knives in this line. Form and function. They get scary sharp and look gorgeous.
