KATSUSHIGE ANRYU AOGAMI2 CLAD HAMMERED HONESUKI / BONING KNIFE ROSE WOOD HANDLE

Katsushige Anryu is a forth generation blacksmith from the Echizen, Fukui prefecture in Japan, famous for producing high quality blades. His desire is to promote the efficacy of hand-forged, rather than factory-produced knives. Kataba fully recognise the truth in what Katsushige professes, for this reason we highly recommend his knives.

Echizen Katsushige knives are created by surrounding a High carbon steel blade with stainless steel, giving the knife sharpness as well as practicality.

 Aogami / Blue Steel

 In Japan, it is well-known that High carbon steel, while not being rust- resistant, yields the sharpest blade possible. To keep knives of this material in pristine condition requires high levels of maintenance.

 The knife pictured is hand-forged and finished to give a hammered effect. It is possible to see the sharp edge of the High carbon steel, protruding through the stainless steel.
