Katsushige Anryu San is a 4th generation blacksmith with has 50 years of experience, best known for his use of blue steel. The knife is constructed of a Hitachi Aogami #2 carbon steel core hardened to 63 HRC wrapped in stainless steel for ease of maintenance. The core steel will take an extremely keen edge with ease and hold that edge for a long time.

On a personal note, my first high performing Japanese knives was this knife. It is an excellent knife for serious beginners and seasoned veterans. It’s a great mid weight all rounder. With the carbon core and stainless cladding, you have the performance of carbon, with easier care. 

Use & Care

  • Do not attempt to cut, hit or chop frozen products or bones. The blade can chip or break with improper use.
  • Hand wash with warm water and towel dry. Never put the knife in a dishwasher, nor soak it in water. Ever!
  • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade. 
  • Do not use on hard melons or items that may torque the blade
