Katsushige Anryu is a blacksmith working in the storied knife making village of Takefu. Mr. Anryu has amassed over 50 years of experience which is evident in this 240mm gyuto from his hammered line. As with other knives in the Anryu Hammered line, this knife is constructed of a Hitachi Aogami #2 carbon steel core, hardened to approximately 62 HRC, and clad in stainless steel for ease of maintenance. The core steel in this gyuto is renowned for taking an outstanding edge easily and holding that edge well. This knife has developed a reputation among Japanese knife enthusiasts for its high-performance grind and unique aesthetic which balances the rustic and the elegant perfectly.
A reminder, the carbon steel core of this knife will discolor with normal use and rust if not dried immediately. Additionally, like many high quality, hand made knives, these knives will vary from one example to the next.

      delamination? , August 16, 2019
    Posted By: sK sommer

    after about a year of all day use at work, being fanatical about rinsing and drying it constantly, it seems the outer cladding is delaminating from the inner core.

    This is also happening (after 3/4 years of use) to a Masakage honesuki also forged by Anryu.

    leaving a neutral review bc these are my first san mai knives so I don't know if this is normal behavior or if I just have anomalous bad examples

    Perfect. Looks stunning in real life, and holds a wicked edge. Get one before the man retires.

      Anryu Hammered Blue Gyuto, February 22, 2019
    Posted By: Charles West - verified customer

    As with everything here at CKTG, extraordinary quality and service, not to mention the one-of-a-kind artisan product line. This Anryu gyuto quickly became the top-of-the-food-chain knife in my kitchen. Plus, the CKTG sharpening service was more than worth the additional cost to have the knife arrive razor sharp out of the box and much easier to maintain after using it. I've been very satisfied with everything I've purchased from CKTG and highly recommend this company to everyone I know.

      Anryu blue hammered 240, December 1, 2018
    Posted By: Bill - verified customer

    I finally caught this one in stock, and I have to say it's impressive. Thin behind the edge, and one would have to hold it in hand to see how the tip tapers down to nothing.
    Great cutter, and a beauty to boot. Lots of bang for the buck with this one.
