Mr. Anryu's Hammered lineup is characterized by its unique hand hammered aesthetic and outstanding fit and finish which complement its first rate grind and world class Aogami #2 steel. This nakiri is no exception. While the core steel is reactive, it is wrapped in stainless steel for ease of maintenance. Like all hand made knives, each of these knives will vary somewhat from one another.

    5  Fantastic knife and amazing customer service of ChefsKnivestoGo, August 18, 2017
    Posted By: Mark Reifkind

    First off Mark has a customer for life given his amazing solution to my problem.I had purchased a knife from his that had some micro chip issues from the start. Mark said to sharpen it a few times and see if I could make it work and if I couldn't he would let me send it back
    I did but I couldn't
    But I loved the knife and didn't want to accept that it wasn't what I paid for.
    I called Mark months after the sale and told you the story. He said sent if back and I'll give you store credit.
    We decided on this Nakiri in BLue # 2 mainly to circumvent any potential issues with edge toughness or durability.
    We hit the nail right on the head. Now weeks of daily use later the edge is still perfect with just a light linen and leather stropping after use.
    The exposed carbon edge developed a beautiful patina right away and it's gorgeous. The rest of the blade is just perfect.

    Going with Anyru shop, with it's decades of experience handed down to his son made me even more confident with the final product.
    And the hammered finish is just plain cool

    Fit and finish over all is top notch

    My highest recommendation

    I was super excited ordering this knife. This is the first Japanese style knife that I have purchased. The knife arrived very sharp. The handle will need some oil work, meaning I doused it in mineral oil and walked away. Seems to be quite fine, and finished well. The blade looks beautiful and almost is intimidating to use such a beautiful knife in a professional environment, but my workload is easy-peasy when using this knife. Mainly carrots, celery, onions, shallots, garlic,potatoes etc.

    I'm happy with the purchase and know that this knife will last me a long time. Scared to put it on a stone, but it will happen soon.

    5  An old friend, March 31, 2017
    Posted By: Doug Mamayek

    I sold my old nakiri a couple years ago, because I wanted room for a 210mm petty in my knife roll, and I regretted it quickly. This spring I bought myself a new knife roll with two more slots... You can't just have a knife roll with empty space, can you? I've wanted to try an Anryu knife for a bit, so I figured this was a chance to take a swing, expecting something good, but I had no idea I'd knock it out of the park. As soon as I picked it up I felt like I had been using this knife for years. The grind is a direct reflection of an incredible amount of experience. Boxes of mushrooms prepped in minutes, pounds and pounds of carrots, bell peppers, onions, prepped with nary a tight forearm or sore wrist. After a week of use, I pick this knife up and it feels like an old friend.

    I will be adding a gyuto in short order, and my guess is that it will replace my Konosuke HD at work.

    I also own the 210mm gyuto, 150mm petty, and 75mm petty in this line. This this is razor sharp out of the box, fit and finish are good, and its well balanced. Goes through veg like warm butter.

    Being a big fan of Nakiri's and I use them for more than just vegetables, I gout my hands on this and new I had something very very special. Blue #2 is very quickly becoming a favorite of mine and I often try to order the new steel on the block since I have to sharpen literally on the fly for people who can't wait so I try out every brand of stone to see what's the fastest with the best edge and those who know my work realizes nothing leaves my shop unless it's razor sharp and tested on food, any decent edge will cut hair I want to test it on tomatoes and the like due to the fact a tomato or celery will never lie to the sharpness of your edge. It's the extra mile that makes it or breaks it on the sharpness of an edge. The Bullman

    I was looking for a blue #2 steel nakiri clad in stainless steel with a little heft. This is the knife. It wasn't razor sharp OOTB. I gave it a 320, 1200, 8000 nagura stoning, polished with strop and the basics. It now pops hair off my arm. Take care of this baby. The edge can be fragile, pending on the angle and bevel you choose. I went to about 10 degrees each side with a nice visible edge. It's the fine blue steel edge you must care for. The grinds are close to 50/50, just a tad more ground on the left side of the knife, but ground very sweetly. It is an extremely well made knife. Very fine craftsmanship on this puppy. The maker of this knife truly knows what they are doing. A true gem from the orient. An awesome knife and definitely a keeper! Thank You CKTG
