Katsushige Anryu – Nakiri 165mm
Katsushige Anryu – Nakiri 165mm

Katsushige Anryu

Knifemaking is in Anryu san’s blood. His family started as knife makers in the early 1870’s. He started apprenticing as a knife maker under his father, Katsutoshi Anryu, after graduating high school in 1959. He is a fourth generation knife maker and has been working as a blacksmith for well over 50 years. Anryu San is also one of the founders of Takefu Knife Village in Echizen, Japan.

The blade is made from Aogami # 2 (Blue Paper # 2 ) steel with a stainless steel cladding. This adds strength to the inner core while protecting it from corrosion.

You can also purchase a Sabitoru Rust Eraser and Camellia oil for maintenance.

Nakiri:

Nakiris are double bevel knives designed specifically for working with vegetables. Nakiris are characterized by their flat profiles and squared off tips. This profile makes these knives ideal for push cutting and chopping but awkward for rock cutting. Nakiris are often ground thin to optimize performance and they benefit from a refined cutting edge. A similar design is the traditional single bevel usuba which is also designed specifically for use on vegetables.

Kitaoka – Yanagiba 300mm (LEFT HANDED)
Kitaoka – Yanagiba 300mm (LEFT HANDED)

Hideo Kitaoka works from Takefu Knife village, Echizen in Fukui Prefecture and specializes in the production of high quality, traditional Japanese blades.

In 1980, Echizen was the first production centre for forged blades and was awarded the national recognized Traditional Craft product accolade. Blades have been hand-forged there since 1392-1573.

Yanagiba:

The Yanagiba is like a carving knife on rocket boosters. It slips through food effortlessly and crazy sharpness of the single edge means you will never struggle. Its a true gateway knife for people wanting to get into single bevel knives and learn some cool tricks. When slicing with a yanagiba the blade will naturally want to pull to the left on a right handed knife. (The opposite is true for is true for a lefty. ) As the driver of the blade, you must take control and tell it where to go. Sounds tricky, but you will get the hang of it after a while. Still the Yanagiba can take years to master.

This is a true slicing machine for people who love excellence.
