The blade of this gyuto is fashioned from a core of Shirogami #2 high carbon steel with a multi-layer soft iron outer cladding. Shirogami #2 is also known as White #2 steel. It is quite similar to 1095 and White #1 steel but with extra carbon. This gives the blade a higher wear resistance than the other two alloys, coupled with good edge stability. It is carbon steel and thus needs care with cleaning and drying between uses. The cladding is left with a blacksmith, or kurouchi, finish. This protects the outer layer somewhat but does not alleviate the need for careful drying of this reactive blade.

180mm is the entry length of most gyutos. The shorter and lighter size of this gyuto gives it a quality that feels fast and nimble. The blade is easy to sharpen to a razor-like edge and is coupled to a nicely finished oval rosewood hand with black pakka wood ferrule.

After 50 years, Anryu san has retired and given over his business to his longtime, trusted apprentice, Ikeda san.

      Beautiful knife by a master blacksmith, July 8, 2020
    Posted By: A T

    This knife is everything! Sharp, holds an edge, hand made, hand forged and is beautiful. It's made by the master blacksmith, Katsushige Anryu. Can't go wrong with that. Also, the customer service and shipping from Chefknivestogo is AMAZING! It was shipped and delivered to me in Canada within 2 days. I was soooo happy. I will definitely purchase from again! Thank you!
