Katsushige Anryu AS Sujihiki 270mm
Katsushige Anryu is a fourth generation blacksmith from Takefu. He trained under his father Katsutoshi Anryu and has been making blades for over 50 years. His nephew Takumi Ikeda helps with the creation of his knives.
His Hammered Kurouchi line is forged from aogami super steel, wrapped in a stainless cladding. These knives sharpen very easily and have superb edge retention. I have found that these knives have very consistent grinds and great fit and finish. Fitted with a maple and pakka octagonal handle.
