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 with abuse. Additionally, like many high quality, hand made knives, these knives will vary from one example to the next.

    3  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.

    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.

    I finally caught this one in stock, and I have to say itís 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.

    The Anryu Blue #2 Hammered Gyuto is my favorite kitchen knife. I really like the way the blade is curved at the heel and runs up into the handle. That makes the knife feel very nimble. The workmanship is very nice and the knife feels very solid. CKTG added a finish sharpening making it amazingly sharp.

    Waited several months on the email waiting list for this knife to come in stock and it was worth the wait. I feel lucky to have a anryu knife since he is getting older and I'm sure is thinking about retirement.Otb sharpness was crazy, just practically fell through the first onion I cut. Since then it's been a pleasure to just do prep before meals and parties I still absolutely love the knife Everytime I use it. Sharpening the knife has also been a pleasant practice and the knife seems to hold it's edge well and for a long time.

    I have the 75mm petty, 150mm petty, 165mm nakiri, and 210mm gyuto from this line. When I saw this was back in stock, I sold my old 240mm gyuto and bought this. This fit and finish are great, and the edge is crazy sharp out of the box. To top it off the hammered finish is beautiful. I love Anryu san's knives. You won't be dissapointed.

    This is my first purchase from CKTG after following a watching a few of theirproduct reviews. I was not disappointed. It's a beautiful knife! The hammeringis so very well done and as the review commented about it, I would say itis perfectly imperfect and reminds you that it is hand made by a person withover 50 years experience and not mass produced. The heel and the spine arefinished expertly and has no rough edges that might catch. The grind on theblade is just amazingly crisp and out of the box was a pleasure to us. I justhope I can maintain this and do it justice. This wasn't my intended purchasebut the customer service was very helpful and delivery swift which pursuadedme to give this website a go. I'm very pleased with my purchase and wouldprobably return for future purchases. I'm probably glad they don't have ashop in London (UK) else my collection would grow very quickly.

    Excellent service by cktg, received fairly quick even via Chicago and dodgy Aus customs. the knife I got is not as perfectly finished and masakage sharp as the one in Shaun's video. it has some choil and spine rough bits I suppose it looks identical to Steve G.s review video knife. Beautiful knife however - and am very happy with the handle fit and finish and the service. Cheers^_^

    This is a first class knife! I spent a long time researching different chef knives and i wanted a good workhorse knife, and I found it. Being stainless clad makes it easy to keep clean without worrying about stains. It gets sharp, stays sharp, and responds well to a steel.I highly recommend this knife and CKTG!Happy cooking!
