Katsushige Anryu has worked for over 50 years as a blacksmith. His kitchen knives have a reputation among users and collectors for being well made and robust as well as possessing an attractive and rustic aesthetic appeal.

He has used Hitachi Aogami #2 carbon steel in the manufacture of this particular line of blades. He hardens the core steel to 63 HRC and then wraps it in a soft stainless steel for ease of maintenance and added strength. 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 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 about the smallest size that gyuto style knives are made. In fact it could be considered part petty and part santoku, not just in dimensions but in abilities and feel. People who like a shorter blade will be intrigued by this knife as it serves so many purposes and is so adroit at many cutting and slicing tasks. It is also a great knife for use in restricted spaces or on small boards.

      I love these knives , August 11, 2018

    This is my 10th knife in this line. They're razor sharp out of the box, and look gorgeous.

      Excellent blade, May 20, 2018

    I've had this blade for a few months now, holds it's edge very well, and has very little flex in the blade, and at this price point everyone should buy one. I mostly use it on things I'm hesitant to put my takeda on, this is quickly becoming my go-to take down knife
